Can't wait for it to be available in the US.

Yamaha must be insane, one of the biggest, richest markets on Earth and they neglect it. UK on the other hand is a piddling little place not that attractive to bikers with our weather and crowded roads. Biking for fun here is very much"the sun is shining, grab a bike" because tomorrow it could be snowing.

The Tracer is lighter as well 60% more power. "SATAN I told you sod off, when are you going to listen ?"

And 60% more torque. "Piss off SATAN."

It is definitely baffling their marketing strategy.

Started to write a post answering yours, but had ro recognise half way, that you're refering the tracer, not the Tenere 700 which I was eagerly waiting.
Nevertheless, I cannot argue with the power and torque figures, but to my understanding the weight is 196kg, what is equal to the 500x. The tracer has the same crappy suspension as the 500 from the factory, even more the rear shock is directly bolted to the
engine block - not that I'd ever heard of any failures related to that.
Apage Satanas!

Not that I'm aware of and that will probably be the point that sinks it for me.  :003: Won't be cheap for sure, too high and I'll keep my X for sure.


Just saw 11099 for the standard and 11999 for the R. Ouch.

Ouch is right, too rich for me I think  :155: Unless they decide to take it easy on us Canadians, or I wait a year to get a leftover one.

That was on show too. Not my cup of tea but looked a serious off road machine, "Solid" in one word. I should think Honda are more than a little worried by it

I'm sure it's a question of "if it look right it is right" and those of a dirty disposition will have a ball on it.

Been away for a few months since selling my X and been pondering my next bike. Id kept thinking that if I cant decide on something else then Id just get another X. Now Ive seen this thread (Id no idea till last night an update was coming) I think my mind is made up - a 2019 X will be mine!

Welcome back to the fold. I think the '19 is going to be a great bike.
