    one would think spokes are exactly for absorbing hard landings etc...
    unless they're made from cheese, as are pipe mounts and plastics on this bike.
    Maybe they should put cast wheels on T7.

    very likely, very likely since there is nothing on the market to replace my xt660z tenere currently,
    Africa Twin expensive and many issues, 790R ugly as hell and expensive, new tiger 900 is a street bike really,
    multistrada 900 unreliable. The only contender is ktm 690R.

    Nice to see the T7 isn't blowing fork seals at the first sign of air. Haven't heard of any stiction or odd wear or flexing issues with the forks either.

    So glad it does not have all the electronics crap. I dont need 20 levels of TC, or a bike that needs it to be rideable. Went through that on the 1190 Adventure. No thanks. Give me something I can ride without a CPU holding my hand.

    good on yami and team orange to actually at least offer too us, a real dirt capable, single up long distance adventure bike. Maybe the others will get on board on day. Kawi. your missing the market, and your klr owned it for years.
