  1. 1. Are you getting a Tenere 700

    • Yes, when Yamaha decides to actually let me I will get one
    • No, they lost my business on this bike
    • Not sure yet, waiting for other's reviews
    • I just came to vote for beer and titties

Ordered today at local dealer. Tenere should come February/March 2020. He has all colours in stock at the moment but I´not in hurry. First I have to get rid of KTM 790 ADV RKTMkilla

What was your experience with the KTM?

Had a few common issues. Moistness in dashboard, lost screw at shift lever and oil leak at drive shaft exit🤷‍♂️

Up in the air at the moment.  Looking at another yr. wait here.  Can put down a refundable $100 deposit with a dealer a couple miles away so not much tied up or lost in the end there.  Being a smaller rider the Rally Raided CB500x looks a bit enticing though.  Get a 2019 for the updates, do suspension first then later wheels.  In the end the T7 looks potentially the better choice especially off-road.

Have you test ridden the Tenere 700? How does it feel compared to the KTM 790 R?

It's going next year, 2014 KTM 690 r. No issues, except not suitable for long distance travel.

I put my deposit down in Victoria, British Columbia. June 2020 delivery. Lucky for me that I was late to the party and the world raid. The wait is 6 more months.

For those in the US that have put a deposit down. What was the dealeo there? My local dealer had no clue and was saying Sept/Oct next year before they would get them. 😞

 

I need to find another dealer. Charlotte NC area.

Not sure you do Charlotte,  I ordered mine nearly 2 years ago when it was a consept bike and Yamaha gave the dealer several dates, failing to deliver for several months. I got in in August but it was well woth the wait.

Well time and circumstances have changed things so at this stage I could not afford the T7 but still wanted a new bike low and behold you sitting down 😁 I brought a HONDA CRF250L its no T7 but I am enjoying this little beauty hope I can still hang around here thanks 👍

I can't afford one either and have a DT200 I ride around my farm that's 23 years old, and i'm still allowed around here! 😳 I'm still saving some $$ so we will see what the future brings? Good luck on the CRF!

My dealer in Oregon had no more info than I had when I went in in August. I still pushed money on to him. Have not heard from him since. I will start bugging him in the new year now that we know that preordering is supposedly starting in March. Then those preorders getting filled starting in June. At least that is the word on the street.

Probably depends on the dealer.  My local dealer in VA was willing to take a $100 refundable deposit for the 1st one to come through their doors when I inquired a while back.

I'm in Australia and I pre-ordered one last Monday, dealer rang today and it's just arrived.

I was told originally that all pre-orders would be filled before store stock and demo's so I wasn't expecting one so quickly, I suppose mine was a pre-order even if it was a short one (4 days).

My local shop has one coming next week as floor stock and it may be mine if I buy it?

I'd almost given up on one but a few $ came my way so it looks like it might really be a reality now though I won't believe it, not one little bit, until I ride the bike away from the dealers....

I am so torn and just wish someone would make my mind up for me...

 

Was a little underwhelmed when I rode one last week, I get that it's designed to be simple but it just feels really basic, and also nowhere near as fun as the 790 R I test rode. Reliability of a KTM though for big rides to the back of beyond is a bit dubious.

 

And then there's the price, yes it's good value for a new bike buuut looking around I could get a fully set up low mileage Africa Twin for less.

 

Gaahhh

 

I said to someone if only the 790 R had been built by the folk at Yamaha or Honda I'd be sold
