T 700 Review from Brake Magazine

Recommended Posts

Two questions for Llel were:

  • Does the T 700 have an off road ABS mode where it keeps abs up front but disables it in the rear?  Nope
  • What aftermarket mods would he prioritize for this bike? He says: tall seat, crash bars and bark busters (hand guards) and heated grips.  he says stock sump guard is fine.  My feeling is if the suspension works then you don't need such a bullet-proof guard.

It looks like the front fender height can be adjusted a little.  

He makes sound likes the bike is just meh.  Seems to get good wheel loft without much effort though.  

Comes in at about $11k US.  So its just a bit more than a CRF450L.  

It seems like a bike alot of us would like to have.  No more going through endless menus every ride to turn off TC, ABS, Off Road mode, etc.  Push a button, ABS off, and now we have a 700cc semi dirt bike.

You've never had a rock get kicked up from your front tire into your skidplate?

What do you think?

Of course I have but never a rock a stock plate couldn’t handle. My hardest hits are from bottoming out, not rocks flying up.
