2020 Yamaha Tracer 700, its much-loved Sports-tourer with a slew cosmetic updates, Euro-5 compliant engine, and an improved suspension system for superior ride and handling characteristics. All these improvements have come together, thereby transforming the Tracer 700 into a more holistic package than before.
In terms of visual changes, 2020 Yamaha Tracer 700 has derived the inspiration from the R1 to imagine a slightly different face for the new Tracer 700. The dual-projector headlamp assembly is adorned by LED lights which have comparatively sharper proportions. The design suits the bike’s demeanor especially in the wake of the robotic look that has been continued by the Yamaha in this latest iteration too.
Thanks to the side fairing of the bike, this Yamaha feels narrower though it might not be a bad thing given the sporty credentials that the company wants to highlight among the target audience. More importantly, the new fairing has been touted to offer improved wind protection which is going to have a positive impact on fuel efficiency and performance. Yamaha has also updated windscreen and with its new less upright design, you get the convenience of adjusting the windscreen by over 2.4 inches.
In terms of engine and transmission, 2020 Yamaha Tracer 700 continues to be powered by a 689cc engine which has gone a number of modifications in order to make it Euro-5 compliant. The air intake system has been revised and there have been made comprehensive changes in the ignition system, fuel injection system, and exhaust system of the bike. Collectively, these improvements help the new Tracer to meet new stringent emission regulations. Just so you know this is the very first variant of the parallel-twin CP2 engine concept that has been able to meet the Euro-5 norms. This also suggests that XSR700 and MT-07 are in line to get a similar upgrade in the future.
