But I'm just dreaming because we can't buy one in the US. (Yamaha you listening ? ( they have to be spying on Honda forums ! :038: )
It's curious - why Yamaha doesn't sell Tracers in USA but Honda sells CB500X. And it seems CBs are quite popular there. Are Yamaha bosses reluctant to earn money  :084: ?

Tax problem?
The 500X is made in Malaysia, tracer 700 and 900 are made in France...

Ahh - didn't know that - it is assembled in Saint-Quentin according to Google! Yes - it's a good reason. 700cc bike would be too expensive for US market. Thanks for the info!

Simple supply and demand. You see 50 harleys and crotch rockets for every adv bike on the road and then 1/2 of those are bmws. Most adv bikes sit at the dealer for several years before they sell. At least in Florida.

The opposite here - a lot of adv bike on road. GS 1200, 800, Tiger 800, Versys and similar. Most of them never seen dirt or gravel road. And some harleys as a part of landscape - overtaken by everybody with any sort of engine (steam, gas, petrol, soda water  :001: ).
