Yamaha will release its new Tracer 7 sports tourer to the Australian market in 2023 as a full-power rival to the likes of the LAMS-only Triumph Tiger Sport 660 and Kawasaki Versys 650.

A previous version of the MT-07-based Tracer was offered locally in a unique LAMS configuration from 2014 (then called Tracer 700), but was dropped from Yamaha’s line-up in 2020.

INFO MOTO can today confirm that that the latest iteration of the Yamaha Tracer 7 will be launched locally with a non-LAMS, full-power tune, with units expected to arrive in mid-2023 in all three colours: Tech Kamo, Redline and Icon Performance.

At time of writing, it is unclear if the new Yamaha Tracer 700 will also be offered in LAMS configuration.

The 2023 Yamaha Tracer 7 draws power from a 689cc parallel-twin engine generating 54kW and 67Nm. With the 17-litre fuel tank full, the bike tips the scales at 210 kilograms and has a seat height of 835mm.

Positioned as a sports touring alternative to the highly popular MT-07 naked bike, the Tracer 7 features a large windscreen and wind-protection, two-up touring seat, preload and rebound adjustable suspension, full LED lighting and optional hard panniers.

More to come.
