Yamaha Motors has released the first official images of the all-new Sports Tourer – Yamaha Tracer 700. Based on the naked MT-07, the Tracer 700 becomes the smaller sibling to the existing MT-09 Tracer that sports a 900 cc engine. A slew of changes made to the MT-07 justify the ‘Sports Tourer’ tag including an upright riding position, top fairing, slight mechanical revisions, etc. The bike will go on sale in the UK some time in July and will help widen the reach of the popular MT-07 range. Here are all the details on the 2016 Yamaha Tracer 700 Price, Specifications, Images and more.
