    • Not sure yet, waiting for other's reviews
    • I just came to vote for beer and titties

I almost bought one 8 months ago, fell in love with the looks of it.  Glad I waited though, the twin engine is so smooth and powerful.

That's why i went for the T7.
My trips got more adventurous and the weight of the Crosstourer was getting in the way but the 660 was a bit restless on long days in the saddle. The power was enough once the powercommander was installed together with the K&N but a bit extra would be appreciated just like the smoothness.
Mine is almost in the perfect configuration (for me) and that will be fixed next month.

Well its almost May 2022 and none of the dealers in BC, Canada have a model available and most are saying try again in 2023!  But Yamaha is unloading onto to their dealers lots of other models there is no demand for.  Go figure.  What's up with that strategy? Perhaps the Japanese plant can shut down one of the lesser sold bikes and start meeting demand. Never seen anything like this from a manufacturer who refuses to meet demand.  Sorry, but I'll be waiting in 2023 to see if Honda will release its "Transalp", the smaller version of the African Twin.  Otherwise, my current bike will do until manufacturers meet the demand for less bells and whistles and a reliable lighter and flawless adventure bike.  Yamaha Japan you've been shown up by your plant in France.

Keep your eyes open for a used one.  One will come up eventually.  I'd like to hear the real story as to why you can't get the bike in Canada.  The mystery continues...

It's almost June and still have not heard of any Teneres in Canada. At least all the dealers I've called anyway. I put money on one in January ......still waiting.

Sounds exciting.  Let us know when it arrives.  

What part of Canada do you dwell in?

The delays I assume are because the section of the plant that is tooled up to build them (all the parts) is overrun by demand.  There are so many unique parts to the T7, it's not like they could just get the MT-07  or  XRS700 section to pump out a few Teneres.   

 

But they should have realized as soon as they built it there would be a huge demand, I mean just look at the other two Yamaha 700 offerings, It was a no-brainer lol
