Guest lawrenceofsuburbia Posted March 22, 2015 Share Posted March 22, 2015 The latest (19 Mar to 1 April) issue of Australian Motorcycle News carries a lengthy report on the new Tracer. it was pretty positive, as far as one can trust a journo's prose and his inevitable reliance on the manufacturer's PR, but the ride and the report was seriously compromised in my view as the bike was ridden, and therefore evaluated, two-up throughout the test. No reason why any bike should not be looked at in terms of its suitability for and performance while carrying a pillion, but something has been lost here, I feel. The article even suggested that Yamaha had deliberately [em]"designed the Tracer with the pillion in mind". A[/em]nd some detail in some of the accompanying pix were not exactly true to the bike I've been studying in the showroom... Quibbling aside, I was pleased to read that the reviewer found the ergos of the bike to be very comfortable, a key matter for me, as I'm used to GS-type ergonomics. Fuel consumption was also pretty fair at 4.6L/ 100km. Oz readers - get yourselves the AMCN mag and read away!
