TRACER FAM­ILY GETS BIG­GER

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

The MT-09 Tracer has been a sales phe­nom­e­non for Yamaha and has been one of the UK’S best-sell­ing bikes since it was launched at the start of last year – thanks to its com­bi­na­tion of great en­gine, at­trac­tive looks and an al­lur­ing price tag of just £8149.

Add in the tempt­ing fi­nance deals on of­fer with the bike, and deal­ers were strug­gling to get hold of enough stock to sat­isfy de­mand. Even now, for cer­tain colours, there can be a wait of up to three months for de­liv­ery.

For 2016 the bike is be­ing re­named Tracer 900, and now joins the sport-tour­ing cat­e­gory in Yamaha’s line-up. This means it will get listed along­side the new Tracer 700 and the likes of the FJR1300 rather than the naked bikes in the MT range. The MT range will now be de­fined as ‘Hy­per Naked’ for those who aren’t clear about what MT stands for.
