Tracer 1000??

Recommended Posts

It looks like a photo shopped MT07 Tracer.  The front body panels are identical.

I tend to agree with this.

While an MT-10 Tracer GT "sounds" intriguing, every review I have read on the bike report quite poor fuel range.  No-go for sport touring.  😪

The MT-10 is based off a R1 so will need some serious redesign to become a sport-tourer although Yamaha seem to be trying to make it into 1 with the MT-10 Tourer edition

MT 10 would be four cylinder, as in the video above, but the picture above is a twin, so likely to be an MT07 photoshop.

Yup but as you can see it's not the same bike as is in the youtube vid. In the vid it's a 4 cyl.

Betoney, I hear you and I love my 200 mile range on the FJ. That being said.......I'm an ole VMax guy and a longtime member of the VMOA. I rode Gen 1 VMaxes, owned 3 of them and wasn't a big Gen 2 fan. On gen 1 VMaxes you got 127 miles out of a tank. And a Member John Furber made rear ends with Venture gearing. They got 165 miles out of a tank and only dropped the RPMs by 500. And on hard acceleration still yealded a long black strip all thru 2nd gear. But now I ride with quite a few Gen2 Vmxes at 3 meets a year I make. With some of their reflashes, they get 90 miles on a tank, reserve and all. Totally out at 90. But hey we've known each other for about 25 years and really enjoy the visit every year, makes it easy to make lots of gas stops. I'm in that 60-year young group now. I was riding a 1996 ZX11 Ninja before I bought the FJ09. It has a 6.5 gallon tank and got 43 miles to a gallon. I used to get gas every other time we stopped, LOL! I'm more than happy myself with 108 RWHP but those Gen2 VMaxes come out of a corner and nail it with 196 RWHP. They just zip past 150 MPH like the FJ09 zips past 90. Now that I think about it I'm pretty happy they need gas every 75 miles or so. As I get more seasoned, as in a seasoned citizen, holding focus for more than 75 miles of twisties is getting harder. 😵 I almost went with the FZ10 as we call it here when it 1st came out. Then I checked the insurance. $376.00 every 6 months...The FJ09 costs me $78.12 every 6 months.  I don't have to have 143 RWHP and 463 lbs. anymore but 5 years ago I would have. If they could put an FJ in front of it my insurance guy says FJ means touring, FZ means naked bike/hooligan. I can tell I'm almost past the point of entertaining the thought of owning a sport-touring 143 RWHP lightweight bike. A little less hooligan these days.......Still, love the light weight power to weight ratio of this FJ. It puts the sport back in sport touring.....don't tell my insurance agent, LOL!

I think a MT10 Tracer would cannibalize Tracer 900 GT sales, so it doesn't make much sense. Unless the MT10 is shaft drive with real luggage, then it could be a replacement for the FJR1300. This doesn't really look like that though.

Meh, A major selling point for my Fj was the triple. I wanted a triple. Now, If they came out with a triple in the 1000 to 1200 range...

I always liked the Triumph Tiger Sport - Just wish it was available stateside.
