Coming from a CP3 FJ-09... How is the T7 on the highway?

Hi

 

Currently I own a 2016 FJ-09. I like the CP3 motor... Fun and enough power. Yet, as I'm 1.91 mts tall, it's not so comfortable for long legs in long trips. Lack of comfort yields in less fun experience. I'm considering the T7 just for on road. For off road would be too heavy for me ; years ago I had the Tenere xt660z... Great ergonomics (as per my hight) and comfortable for long trips, yet underpowered for highway. I know that obviously the CP2 will not have the same power than a CP3, yet, how would you qualify the T7 in highway? Do you feel good, fun and acceptable power?

Its well over 70bhp can eat up miles, great on the road, especially twisty ones. Motorways speeds are easy as are overtakes. Though initially it will feel far less less sharp and much less than a CP3 /MT/FJ-09, that I had, and my missile MT-10 CP4 rocket. A T7 CP2 can easy pull to and cruise at a 3 figure speed (on track/closed road) it could sit at 80 90 all day. It will not power wheelie away from a junction or lights like a CP3 can but it is not a wheezy old single cylinder. It revs to 11k. On ramp power for joining motorways is grand.

Perfectly said again X Plane!

 

Completely agree. It's the same engine as the MT-07 / FZ-07 but geared much lower, so it accelerates really well up to 90 MPH or so. The mid-range is so good, it never feels under-powered.

Yes great bike for road trail or dirt. I rode it from Derbyshire to the south of France in 2 days then on to The Pyrenees. Doing 3500 miles in two weeks. I was dreading it but the bike was surprisingly comfortable. 
 

Thanks Mick
