    That was more or less my experience with Mach1. I guess bird-in-the-hand syndrome...they want to sell what's on their floor, to the point they're willing to pretend they don't know anything about the T7.

    I'm quoting you because you said not to.... :lol3



    I'm looking forward to this bike, it'll be nice to have something much lighter than my Super Tenere.

    Vos Motorcycles is in Canada, so that would explain the higher than expected dollars. Also, it is not a Super Tenere 700, just a Tenere 700.

    Found it interesting and understand it’s not here in the USA. Nice to see the information closer to home but also find it odd there is no “launch” information online for Canada or pricing release.

    When I saw the $11,999 price, I was taken aback, as that is higher than estimates for USA, but when I found that it was a Canadian dealer, I felt better about that price, as it may still be the projected $10,499 estimate that I have read.

    If those are the prices I might try to get one in Canada. With current exchange rates it should be closer to $9k in the US.

    Maybe that $12K price is the loaded bike with hard bags. If it's around the $10K price without them, that's a little more palatable. It should be because if $12K is the bare-bones bike , that's too much. The 790R would be the more bang for my buck scenario ..... even though it's made in China.


    Decisions, decisions.

    That's base price. The KTM is $4k more than the t7. $4k more is not worth it for me in the slightest.

    I'm writing from Canada. Up here an Adventure R is listed at $14,5K. If you are saying the base price of the T7 is $12K, that's only a $2500 difference. Given the tech level and component level of the KTM, worth every penny to me.

    Now that I'm on a laptop, I see you are up here as well, although way over in TO. Maybe they are just charging that much because you guys never see the Stanley Cup unlike Vancouver ....... wait, oh crap.

    ah you are correct. $2500 more (but also an increased pdi etc). But then you'd have a ktm. Too much tech that can and will go wrong. I'd rather put $2500 into suspension and mods instead on the t7. Plus this is a Tenere thread soooo.

    Here in Germany it is still about 3000 Euro difference between a proper Tenere 700 and an "Adventure"of 790 R. I would need a lot of contributions all over the forums here, to argue with me any penny to spend for an "Adventure".
    Writing this I just look to the failure threads for a 790 KTM, which will give you hours of reading. Or just a bored view over to the Tenere trouble thread, it is not even one page...

    The number of licensed and plated Tenere 700 in Germany for August is already higher than the number of plated 790 "Adventures" in August. For an "Adventure" 790 you can already ask for huge discounts, which may decrease the price below the Tenere 700 price of 9599 Euro. But honestly, even that money I can not argue for, it is a slightly better 790 GT or something I would call a Duke 790 traveller. And believe me, the KTM components which are used, are cheaper than the quality stuff Yamaha is using for the new Tenere 700.

    ...ah, there is one KTM thing I am using, I attached the hand guards to our Tenere.
