Yamaha MT-10 ‘Tracer’ ruled out

No plans for ‘Tracer’ touring version of the Yamaha MT-10 streetfighter.


For those of you hoping for a ‘Tracer’ touring version of the new Yamaha MT-10 streetfighter will be disappointed. A reliable source reports that the Japanese manufacturer ruled out any plans of producing a touring version of the new streetfighter that’s based on the Yamaha YZF-R1S.


Perhaps the final nail in the coffin to that is the fact that when the Yamaha MT-10 was released in Europe recently, part of its optional accessories packages included a touring pack for added practicality. The pack adds a taller Tracer-like windscreen plus luggages, which should complement the MT-10’s standard-equipped electronic cruise control feature.

Rumours of a MT-10 Tracer version began cropping up as soon as the bike debuted, much of which being fuelled by the successes of the smaller Yamaha MT-09 Tracer model that is based on the MT-09 tri-cylinder naked.


As a refresher, the Yamaha MT-10 was officially released into the European and UK market recently. Official specifications see the R1-derived 999cc crossplane in-line four-cylinder outputting 158hp and 110.9Nm of peak torque in the Yamaha MT-10 streetfighter.
