Check out rear end of the new prototype T7

I mean so much, that prototype is so enhanced. the two rear fuel tanks alone make it bulkier. No need for indication or plates since it's a competition bike.

I'm more curious to see where they attached the exhaust, it seems to be on a smaller type of bracket but haven't seen a close enough picture yet.

I see the Rebel X Sports footpegs.

 

Tough to say, but the mount almost looks like it connects to a tab dropping down from the auxillary tank. Maybe it sneaks in behind direct to subframe.

I thought so too initially but you can still see it welded on.  They either hack sawed the original off & bolted a different one on with a sleeve linking the tubes or that bolt is something else.

Why the concern over bolt on subframes anyway? Avoiding a write off in the event it gets cranged? Has that even happened to anyone with a welded unit yet?  The likelihood seems slim (unless you’re Pol T…. or trying to be)

The rear subframe is removable.

Like I said.....it looks like they hack sawed the original off, stuck an insert in the tube & clamped a new one on.  Has nothing to do with a production unit.  I hope it is bolt on.  No removable sub on a dirt bike is lame.

Actually yeah. A bolt on frame would have saved me from having to chop up and reweld the rear end of my t7

How many ADV bikes offer a bolt on subframe?  T7 may blur the lines, but it’s not marketed as a dedicated enduro machine nor should it be confused with one. Can’t disagree though, the bolt on would be nice for those rare occasions.
