Yamaha have revealed that their popular Tracer 700 will recieve the GT treatment for 2019, gaining an adjustable larger touring screen, roomy, comfortable padded seat and a set of colour-matched 20-litre side cases.

Following in the footsteps of the firm's larger, three-cylinder Tracer 900GT, which uses the standard Tracer 900 as a base, it is claimed that this £7999 new version will allow owners to travel further and in greater comfort, without losing any of the fun and agility.


Using the firm's 689cc, parallel twin-cylinder, crossplane engine, borrowed from their own superb MT-07, complete with a beefy 17-litre fuel tank (although no larger than the standard 700), the bike is a recipe for long-distance, B-road carving fun. 

The bike will be available in three colour options; Phantom Blue, Tech Black and Nimbus Grey colour.

See this bike debut in the UK at Motorcycle Live from 17-25 November at The NEC.
