IN DE­TAIL

1 Go­ing the dis­tance

It’s hard to be de­fin­i­tive, but the petrol tank be­neath the joust­ing skirt ap­pears to be quite large – we’d es­ti­mate 21 litres – which com­bined with the fru­gal en­gine could easily give the T7 a 250-mile range.

2 Room for two

The rad­i­cal body­work on the T7 con­cept was clas­sic lean, mean Dakar racer, but the pro­duc­tion bike has a more mod­est sub­frame de­sign to al­low for pas­sen­gers. The pil­lion seat is clearly vis­i­ble, while there are no pil­lion pegs on this test bike.

3 Other op­tions

The two-piece seat is a de­par­ture from the con­cept’s pure off-road styling, but it’s pos­si­ble Yamaha will of­fer a sin­gle piece seat and other ac­ces­sories, or even of­fer two ver­sions of the model – a road­fo­cused one, and a more ex­treme rally-styled ver­sion.
