Yamaha T7 ADV bike (700cc twin)!

I just watched this video, and the Yam T7 looks AWESOME(ish)! It's in German w/ English subtitles.


Hopefully it will 'light a fire' under some other manufacturers...!

BTW - the T7 is a prototype!

I have always thought that it would be awsome if kawasaki would produce a klr with the versys engine in it.

That would be one of the few bikes that would make me consider trading in my Versys.

The prototype is about the same weight as my FZ-07. Yamaha is doing a lot with that engine. Too bad we won't see the bikes in the states.

Wow! that's what I'm talking about. Why can't ma cow do that. The KLR is a very good bike, It's just underpowered. 36hp same as the honda 350 back in the 70s.
