Meeting stringent European emissions regulations has not reduced output from the updated 2020 Yamaha MT-07 Tracer.
The 689cc CP2 twin is updated with optimised fuel injection and ignition settings, revised air intake, optimised exhaust settings and a modified exhaust.
Cleverly the Japanese meet Euro5 without dropping any power.
The Japanese company has unveiled the new Tracer ahead of the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan tonight (5 November 2019).
It also comes with a more aggressive styling, especially in the front end.
Suspension has been upgraded with 41mm cartridge-type forks with preload and rebound damping adjustment and preload and rebound-adjustment is available on the rear shock.
Its touring ability gets a boost with a more comfortable contoured dual seat and new aerodynamic screen that can be adjusted over 60mm with one hand.
The handguards now offer more protection and have inbuilt compact LED indicators while the handlebars are 34mm wider.
It will be available in Icon Grey, Sonic Grey, or Phantom Blue.
There is no word on arrival in Australia yet, although it is expected to arrive at the end of the first quarter of 2020.
The current model costs $12,299 plus on-road costs.
