T7 weight

Recommended Posts

I'm reading that the T7 is 52lbs heavier than my 2017 FZ 07.

What a bummer.

Beefier frame, bigger forks, frame was extended, longer exhaust,etc what's needed to survive off road abuse vs a road bike... 

You can still strip extra weight off like most of us have done on our FZ/MT-07s 

I haven't really seen any current owners complain about the weight on the T7 forum... 


2015 fz-07- Hordpower Edition...2015 fj-09- 120whp- Graves Exhaust w/Woolich Race Kit- tuned by 2WDW

Compared to any real dirt bike it's "Hogzilla." If anyone that owns one ever drops it in the soft dirt they aren't going to think it's so light.

I would hope that anyone buying that bike (or any ADV bike) knows better than to expect dirtbike performance and handling.

Even my KLX250s, which was about as dirtbiky as dual sports come, was a pig on single track. Nobody is buying a T7 and expecting to take on hill climbs and tight trails though.
