    • 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

I’ve had  a KLR 650 for the last 2 years. Waiting on my local dealership to receive their first Tenere. I was told yesterday it will be end of September or early October before they receive it. As soon as it arrives I’ll be driving it home.

Well, my somewhat local yamaha dealer has had my $1000 deposit since mid June now. I fell in love with the red and white one and of course that ended up being the last ones to be delivered. However, I talked to a salesman today who said the ones they were supposed to get in October were pulled so no one has any clue when they'll be in. It all seems very up in the air. But yeah, still 100% committed to this bike. I just hope it isn't snowing by the time it gets here.

Want a black one but no one within a 500 mile radius at any dealership can give me a solid date of when one would be available even with a deposit. I get everything from "they are behind in shipping" to "1 to 2 months maybe" to "we are having a meeting with Yamaha next week to confirm" to "no one knows". Why would anyone put a deposit on a bike that might be a year away? I've already been waiting over a year. I'm just about ready to spring for a KTM790 Adventure R and call it done.

I think they might mean end of September 2021.

I think you’re right. Although someone I know in Wisconsin received there’s 3 weeks ago.

Sure do, it’s ordered & getting extras fitted at the dealer right now!


I hope to take delivery next week.

 

Looking forward to having it as my long term Adventure bike, hopefully it’s a reliable excitement machine that I can put 100,000klm’s on Over 10 years.
 

I sold a KTM790R for this bike. 🙋🏼‍♂️👍

What would provoke you to sell a ktm790r for a T-7? The 790r seems like a t-7 with better suspension and better/more electronics.

Yamaha announced they would take official pre-orders about 3 weeks ago.  $500 minimum deposit.  By the time I made it to the dealer, 3 others had pre-ordered.  I explained to the dealer I didn't want to be in line for whatever allotment of bikes Yamaha was sending them.  He explained to me that unlike KTM, pre-ordered bikes are not dealer allotted bikes, they are bikes you are actually ordering from Yamaha that Yamaha will deliver before the dealer gets his floor bikes.  I explained to him that I would be upset if I put a deposit down and it wasn't like he just explained it.  To avoid me being upset he called the Western Yamaha rep who confirmed, pre-orders are for sure from Yamaha and are filled before the dealers get their floor bikes.  Happily I put a deposit down and we entered my order directly into the dealers Yamaha order system in the color of my choice (matte black as I crash a lot).  I could not order the explorer or rally pack nor any accessories.  Yamaha said I'll have my bike "first week in June."  The dealer said that probably meant in the Yamaha warehouse not in my hands.  Dealer says it may be 2nd week in June before it's in Pocatello so don't be disappointed.

 

It's September now, did you get it?

@Hoylie quite frankly I’m wondering the same thing.  I have a buddy agonizing over the research on a KTM790R, T7, Tiger 8\900, GS800. The more info on the 790r the merrier.

I was just about to order the T7 before Covid. Now I will wait until next summer, hoping prices might go down in the EU as the US / Aussie demand is met. Hopefully, I can then start my around the world trip.

Yes. The possible lockdowns looming give me the creeps, but I'm going to trade in my Yamaha Tracer 900 GT to get a Ténéré 700 Rally Edition that I should be riding in October. Leaving a great bike, but the new T7 has succeded to strike a nostalgic key in my soul's piano.

Restless, forget about your idea. Had the same idea here in Switzerland close to the German border. T7's are nearly sold out in Southern Germany. No discount. In August only three in black available in 80km radius around Zurich. So I bought it when my preferred dealer offered me one. More than 3100 km later I'm still happy about this decison. Believe me it also takes time to order and mount the accessories. The unbeatable argument, I already enjoy riding my T7 😉

There seems to be many and varied stories around reliability issues on the 790R
