Yamaha Tracer 700 for rental
Yamaha Tracer 700 for hire from RoadTrip
Introducing the World Class Yamaha Tracer 700
We think the Yamaha Tracer 700 is the best lightweight touring motorcycle on the market. It was first released in mid-2016, and we introduced it to the RoadTrip fleet in 2017. We added a second Tracer 700 for hire in 2018.
The Tracer 700 is based on Yamaha’s successful MT-07 motorcycle. Its 689cc liquid-cooled, parallel twin motor is the same, and produces a class-leading 74 bhp and a hefty 50 ft-lbs of torque. This good-looking motorcycle shares all the excellent qualities of the award-winning MT-07 as well; agility, power, a great gearbox, a very comfortable riding position, and light, responsive handling.
MT-07 to Tracer 700 Evolution
Yamaha has designed the Tracer 700 for touring as well as riding pleasure. The set-up of the Tracer 700 also makes it feel like a larger bike. Foot pegs are in the same place as on the MT-07, but the rear sub-frame has been redesigned and raises the seat by 30mm, so there is more legroom. Yamaha has also raised the handlebar, added handguards, and moved the bar a bit closer to the rider, making the riding position even more comfortable. The enlarged 17 litre tank, half fairing with twin headlights, and adjustable screen set the touring tone.
The Tracer 700 also has a new aluminium rear swing arm, which is 50 mm longer and replaces the steel unit on the MT-07. This increases stability for two-up touring. The bike’s suspension set-up has also been remodelled. The rear shock absorber is longer, with more travel and revised linkages. The front fork also has longer travel for touring comfort, as well as a revised spring rate to account for the new fairing. The ride is positive and comfortable, and the longer wheelbase and increased rake do not compromise the bike’s handling at all – the Tracer 700 drops into corners just as well as the MT-07.
Dual 282mm front discs with four-pot callipers and a 245mm rear disc ensure powerful and responsive braking, and ABS is standard.
