T7, Tenere 700....

Has anyone ordered a T7....what do you guys think of the bike after seeing the reviews and You Tube coverage...? Is it a worthy successor to the Tenere...? Steve

I'm a bit nervous...

We all hoped the S10 would be a great leap forward, and, well, it is a good bike but it lacks any 'spark', it's so dull to ride you may as well get a Honda.

I'd love the T7 to shake up the whole sector, but I wouldn't bet on it. I live in hope though.

That's my worry...only a test ride will tell. I've tried a few bikes over the last year but none of them make me smile like the Tenere!(apart from my darling XR650R!) My heart sinks when you take a bike for a test ride and the salesman just goes on about how 'smooth ' the engine is....ie DULL...! Hopefully a few mods can liven up the T7...that MT engine is supposed to be strong and reliable, plus it's not fitted with loads electronics...rider modes no one needs! Steve

The S10, yes I test rode it for a day - I bought a Tiger 800... then a CrossTourer 1200, then a 1200GS, then another 1200GS... None of those bikes set the world on fire in terms of 'spark' (the Tiger fell apart faster than a tissue in the rain), but they had something.

Obviously, I still have the 2008 Tenere.
