BIKE (UK) - - ON ANY SUNDAY - A tempt­ing ar­ray of ac­ces­sories and bolt-ons awaits those with the where­withal

Even as you read this, ac­ces­sory com­pany elves around the globe will be work­ing to per­fect a range of bolt-ons designed to en­hance the prac­ti­cal­ity and looks of the new Tracer. But Yamaha’s own ac­ces­sory elves have got a head­start and it’ll be easy to add to the Tracer’s £6436 start­ing price with trin­kets from the Yamaha cat­a­logue. The sports tourer tag means that most parts are aimed at in­creas­ing com­fort and prac­ti­cal­ity, but there is a se­lec­tion of ‘bil­let’ levers, oil caps, rearset foot­pegs, and some an­odised plugs too. Lug­gage is taken care of by a 39-litre top box, a choice of three tank bags and two dif­fer­ent types of pan­nier, both with 20-litre ca­pac­ity per pan­nier but with a hefty and in­ex­pli­ca­ble price dif­fer­en­tial. Need more com­fort? Try the taller screen and a com­fort seat, avail­able with or with­out the ben­e­fit of heat­ing. And heated grips are avail­able too. Given the vul­ner­a­bil­ity of the ra­di­a­tor you might want the rad guard as well.
