OPTIONS AND ACCESSORIES
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.
