Ahead of the opening of the EICMA show in Milan, Italy, photos and video have emerged of the 2020 Yamaha Tracer 700. While we only get the Tracer 900 and 900 GT in Malaysia, the middleweight Tracer 700 has been on sale in Europe for several years.
Changes that can be seen on this new Tracer is the LED headlights, with a LED DRL brow and LED projector lights for main and high beam. The wind deflector is now more aerodynamic and is adjustable using one hand.
The 689 cc, two-cylinder, Crossplane CP2 mill is carried over from the previous generation Tracer 700 but changes have been made to the fuel delivery, ignition, exhaust and gear ratios and the engine is now Euro 5 compliant. Yamaha claims the power numbers for the Tracer 700 are 72.4 PS at 8,750 rpm and 68 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm.
With a weight of 196 kg, the Tracer 700 is said to be the lightest in its class and comfort has been improved with revisions to both the rider and passenger seat. Fuel tank capacity remains the same at 17-litres.
Other changes to the 2020 Yamaha Tracer 700 include the front fork that now comes with 130 mm of travel as well as the monoshock with 142 mm along with twin 282 mm diameter brake discs in front and 245 mm at the back, 17-inch wheels and LCD instrument panel. There are three colour options for the Tracer 700 and it will enter the European market in February 2020.
