Yamaha is making the Sport Tourer category more accessible than ever with the LAMs approved Tracer 700.
Here’s a light, agile, 655cc twin cylinder machine that can offer the freedom of the open road to not only entry levellers but more experienced riders who appreciate a great power to weight ratio and nimble handling.
Whether you’re heading out for a quick back road blast after work or preparing to take a long-distance tour, this versatile thrill seeker lets you have your cake, eat it… and then eat it again.

The new Tracer 700 sports a 4-valve twin cylinder 655cc engine with a 270-degree crank that delivers an uneven firing interval. This provides a strong feeling of acceleration as well as high levels of traction to deliver an exciting and rewarding riding experience.
To help deflect wind from the rider's upper body, the Tracer 700 is fitted with a manually adjustable windscreen as well as knuckle guards with integral flashers. Dual Tracer 900-style headlights emphasise the model's modern and aggressive look.
LED digital instrumentation are easy to read and note also the slotted bar cross piece that allows fitment of GPS or mobile phone.
To suit its long distance role, the 130mm travel front and rear suspension systems feature revised settings for smooth and responsive characteristics in a variety of conditions. Dual 282mm front discs with 4-pot calipers and a 245mm rear disc deliver powerful and responsive braking performance, and ABS is equipped as standard.
Semi-soft panniers have a hard inner and soft outer shell and come standard with all bracketry on the new Tracer 700.
