The Yamaha MT-07 should not be alone, a variation Tracer would approach as we had expected. The last shots of a running prototype stolen in Italy portend the progress of the MT-07 Tracer project. Obviously the bike, still in the testing phase is already accomplished.
We had already talked with an official Yamaha document but then things become clearer as to the arrival of a Yamaha MT-07 Tracer. As for the MT-09 platform, the technical basis MT-07 is bound to generate several models. The declination Tracer MT-07 appears to be a logical step in the Yamaha range. Especially a test mule was photographed by our colleagues Moto.it the streets of Milan.
Painted in matt black, still dressed tape, it certainly still serves to ultimate tests before entering pre-production. We distinguish quite clearly the initial base MT-07 on which is grafted half enveloping fairing fairly and provided with a rather high bubble. Which should be manually adjustable, while the control system is not clear on visual. The tank seems more rounded in its upper part, which means more volume to increase the autonomy of the future crossover.
Yamaha MT-07 Tracer to roll away at a small price
The suspension, still faithful to 17-inch rims sticks, seem taken from the MT-07. Offroad abilities were not part of the specifications for these pictures. It is also difficult to assess any changes in the swing arm or rear loop, even if the latter has probably been changed to provide more space for passengers and luggage, already built on this bike.
Despite these uncertainties, the arrival, probably to 2016, a Yamaha MT-07 Tracer is becoming more likely. Then what about the selling price? Knowing that ABS MT-07 costs € 6499 € 1000 … more for the MT-07 Tracer ABS € 1,500 or more as the gap between the MT-09 ABS in European market € 8,499 and MT-09 Tracer ABS € 9,999 aprox.
