    MT07 Tracer launched.

    Been seeing quick reviews ( maybe pretend teasers from the company).
    One big thing is the tank is actually a decent size instead of the peanut harley size tank on the MT/FZ.
    May upgrade if the real one is released in Aus but word is the ridiculous toy version will be coming here.
    What would be nice is if it will be a straight swap onto the MT/FZ. There is room as the std tank wastes a huge amount of space under the cover.

    The fairing has the same adolescent manga transformers parachute design as the rest of the MT's though.

    Changes from MT07 to Tracer 700.

    The good:
    + Fairing: Useful and looks ok.
    + Instrument cluster: Moved forward of ignition key.
    + Tank: Useable volume up 25% (from 12 to 15 ltr)
    + Rear sub frame: Sturdier, accepts higher load, looks better.
    + Seat: Comfier for both rider and pillion, hight up 30 mm.
    + Pegs: Proper rubber pillion pegs, good position.
    + Swing arm: Alu instead of cheap steel, longer, proper adjuster block/nuts, accepts paddock stand spools.
    + Suspension: Rear travel up from 130 to 142 mm.
    + Exhaust: The new Akra Ti for Tracer 700 look super sweet, better than dito for MT07.

    The bad:
    - Hand guards: Ugly and useless.
    - Front indicators: stupid hand guard mounted, need to relocate them to the fairing.
    - Pegs: Rider foot pegs with comfy air pockets inside rubber, FJR1300 style. No need.
    - Weight: Up about 12 kg or 6.5%
    - Price: Up about 1000 EUR or 15%

    Over all I think Yamaha did a good job.

    In my "Hi Everyone" message I should have mentioned that my new bike is a 700 Tracer.
