    I love mine to bits , came from a tractor , sorry Gs1200 , via an XSR900 which I toured Germany on and loved the motor so much I tried the new Tracer GT on my return and immediately gelled with it , Smooth and re assuring and fitted my requirements as though it was built with me in mind . Top spec for a keen price compared to what's out there and my local dealer Alf England in Bedworth are a proper family business who know how to treat folk with care and a smile at all times , rare I know , but they made buying from the, a pleasure.
    I might add that previously I test rode both the Ducati multi 950 and the Ktm 1190 locally and am still waiting fr the dealers to get back to me with a price to change my XSR ! Nil response to me wanting to give them approaching Ł1100 !!! How do they stay in business ? If they can't be bothered to contact me to sell a bike what confidence does this give me a customer to buy one and rely on the, for support ... Totally inadequate dealer representation
    Yamaha Tracer GT , does it for me

    I bought a Tracer last year, not the GT. I agree it’s not a bike you would drool over, like an MV or tricked up Ducati, but it does grow on you. The more I own and ride it the more it reminds me of a Z650 I had: does everything I ask of it, never lets me down just doesn’t set the pulse racing when I open the garage door. At the price what’s not to like? I spent some time adjusting the suspension and it’s now much better but still some way off best in class, though I could have said the same about my GS before it got Wilbered. When I sat on the GT at the NEC show the only bit I thought was an obvious improvement was the seat, no longer a plank but something that might be comfortable for more than a couple of hours.
