Yea ive seen decals available but not a full orange panel yet
Aren't those just the leading edges of the OEM Rally plastics Nowwhat installed?
Just came home today....
2lbs lighter with 1.1gal less fuel. Taller seat, less clearance and travel.. top heavy. But cheaper and perceived more reliable.. you pay less and get less?
Looks like their Yamaha test mule unit had optional crash bars and maybe the optional skidplate as well? If they weighed it without those items that would change things a bit.
They really are two very different bikes from A to Z, including cost. Their biggest similarities are wheel size, and weight. I'm still looking forward to throwing a leg over one some day. Might get one, throw a bit of money into suspension and do something with the exhaust hanger issue and ride off into the sunset.
Yes it had engine guards which are 8-10lbs but they are really needed on T7. There's also a vid of yama test mule tipping scale at 474lbs in T7 thread but that one had center stand, lighter exhaust and 3/4 tank full.
As for weighing without guards old XT660 Tenere plastics were very crash resistant to the same degree as 790 if not more. T700 not so much, so you really wanna them if you ride dirt. Also T7 is top heavy so it would feel heavier even if it is lighter.
in the part finder the 890 adv R Rally is not available yet!
below is a link to the 790 adv R Rally that also has the orange plastic parts on the side panel (part 10 and 11 tank spoiler left and right)
139,50 euro each side
@Dodge_AxE It's winter time over here, just go "all-in" like I did for the New-Year-New-Look
Well it's all relative when it comes to "needing" crash bars on the Yamaha versus the KTM I imagine. Though I've not owned a T700, just the KTM so I don't have a valid side by side comparison.
On the 790 I've destroyed and had to replace the front left side inner and tank spoiler plastics twice. Just installed a new radiator since the original one was getting seriously bent up. Oh, and I had fuel tank stress fractures crop up on the right side which I've repaired. Would the Yamaha without crash bars faired worse? I have no idea. What has your experience with both of them been?
Lol i wish! Wife has a vote aswell i’m afraid
I saved his plastics photo for this spring, when I may have to sway that vote with a purty picture
you are perfectly right stating the T7 being more top heavy than the 790/890.
i ride both an even with a significantly lighter tenere it still feels top heavy. A higher seat makes this even more noticeable as would be expected.
You mainly feel it when in slow technical stuff or standing still.
As soon as you are on the go the top heaviness will disappear miraculously.
How much did that cost? Asking for a friend
It's just some plastic (is what I've told my wife). Don't know exactly, but there have been some nice black / cyber whatever deals, making it about 400.
Don't go chasing it
I have a couple of questions about the 790 and thought this would be a good place to ask as you bloke are out and about on these bikes. I am looking to buy something in this middle weight class. However I am a bit cautious about getting another water cooled bike and how the vent the radiators, I has a 1200 GS Rallye and the radiators vented in front of your legs and would blow up into your face. Not pleasant on a warm day. So can you guys tell me how the venting is on the 790 and also how is the wind off the screen/headlight ? I rode a T7 yesterday and found the buffeting a bit much and the bike a bit spongey over all. I had a 950SE years ago, should have kept that bike, then a couple of GSs and now an Urban G/S with Willbers, all just to heavy. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also great pictures guys.
Some people are riding in the desert with the bike
And didn't here of any problem
As for buffeting most people have it.
I found that the mirrors caused the buffeting
Put the rotti quick flip kit rode today 88mph and mostly clean air I do have a different screen now
And did leave the ram ball mount for my gopro
Also the little buffeting u have might be from the tablet might put a spoiler back on see if it finishes it completely (pics of the new mirrors and the screen)
Haven't had any noticeable hot air blast off the radiator fan, many have found that the oem screen / mirrors etc can cause buffeting depends on your stature, helmet plus a miriad of other variables... Best bet is to find a demo and have a ride. You may not like the 790's power delivery given your past / current bikes?
Test ride, then you'll know for sure.
If you're local to me, I'd be happy for you to have a ride :)
@Fred Gassit there is a ton to read up on, to answer some of your concerns, here in the 790/890 section. Threads abound .. unfortunately this thread specifically is where we all oogle at 790/890 porn.
I'd say, grab a few pints, and hit the threads for a marathon reading session.
