I also stood between the choice of CBX and the Tracer 700. Both machines have their advantages, the Tracer has a great, more powerful motor, the better, but poorly controllable brakes. But the Honda has the better standard suspension, for my physique the better sitting position and in my eyes is the better overall package.
After testing both machines, I decided on the CBX. In the linked thread I wrote a detailed driving report for the Tracer 700.
ok but i talk for the new tracer not the old

Hi Ntiksisos, you have to check your local yamaha website, it will be different in each country. Here, the old Tracer i it is just below 9.000 euros.

The new Tracer is not out yet, nobody will be able to tell you. The motor is the same, so what adman reports in the other thread is relevant. The seating position is unlikely to be changed, we'll have to see about the brakes and suspension. I had the XSR700 before the CBX, the motor is lively and stronger, it does not vibrate as much as the CB, but the throttle is jerky at lower speeds, in town I always had to feather the clutch. It also runs hot, I hated stopping at traffic lights in summer, the hot air from the motor would blow right on my legs. What kind of roads do you have? If a lot of highways, the 700 will be more comfortable at high speeds. If secondary roads, especially in bad condition, the CBX might be a better choice.

At first, my butt hurt from the seat but I got used to it quickly, now I am very comfortable. I have done around 400 km in one day, it was fine, but again, it depends on the roads, I was riding secondary and twisties, a lot of fun. Now, highway is another matter, 130-140 km/h can be done no problem, but I dont like doing long stretches on highways. The CB vibrates a bit more than the XSR700 did, and my hands hurt, especially the throttle hand. I installed the grip puppies and it is fine now, no problem on my hands. It depends on how and where you ride.

Certainly the tracer is faster. And beautiful.  Honda Is Better in Travel?

I have visited Spain, France, Germany, Italy and the X does it well and I still have to watch speed limits. It happily cruises at 140/150 kph. It's a great pleasure in mountain hairpins. It will take me to Italy again in comfort and totally relaxed manner this year.

But it does not have the excitement of the 700 when opening the throttle and breaking speed limits.

It's a matter of engine temperature in the city is an issue. I live in Greece. in Crete
