Some may say that the Yamaha Tracer 700 is just an MT-07 with a fairing and windshield. In fact, that statement cannot be more further from the truth. Because, the ergonomics are completely different and the Tracer feels like a much bigger bike compared to the MT-07.

The riding position is high, roomy and comfortable. The bike is lightweight and easy to handle, which are both very important attributes of a good sport-touring bike. On top of that, you will get the famous MT-07’s parallel twin engine that is smooth and reliable.

So, if you are looking for a well-balanced a2 friendly sport touring bike that offers a great value for money, you can’t go wrong with the Yamaha Tracer 700.
