2020 Yamaha Tracer 700

The latest generation Yamaha Tracer 700 has been unveiled ahead of the 2019 EICMA show in Milan, featuring updated styling to bring it into line with the rest of the range.

Designed to combine sports performance with the versatility of a tourer, the Yamaha Tracer 700 has undergone an overhaul from the outset to share more styling cues with the Yamaha MT range.

With its all-new twin LED headlamp arrangement, the Yamaha Tracer 700 boasts a more aggressive front-end design in-keeping with Yamaha’s most recent design language, while updated fairings and new colour options complete the look.

Under the skin, the Yamaha Tracer 700 gets a mildly updated version of the venerable 698cc 2-cylinder crossplane engine with revised fuel injection and ignition settings, a modified exhaust and tweaked gear ratios.

Claimed to be the lightest motorcycle in its class, the Tracer 700 features adjustable front and rear suspension and aerodynamic screen with single-handed adjustment for 2020, all with a view to improve ergonomics and comfort levels.

Updated to ensure it remains as capable as a dynamic sportsbike through bends or a long-distance tourer, the 2020 Yamaha Tracer 700 joins the NIKEN, FJR and Tracer 900 in Yamaha’s sport touring range.

The motorcycle is one of a few machines to premiere at the 2019 EICMA show, alongside the new Yamaha TMAX 560, Yamaha MT-125, Yamaha MT-03 and the recently-launched Yamaha R1 sportsbike.

Yamaha will also introduce the FJR1300AS Ultimate Edition & FJR1300AE Ultimate Edition at EICMA with new colour options, high touring screen and wind deflectors.
