    That is the ultimate around town bike. Not nearly enough power for me, as far as two-up or bigger, faster roads go but perfect for commuting and ripping around. I really hope they do a proper ADV version.

    I like it. I think Yamaha has a winner with this bike. 60lbs lighter than the Weestrom. Looks like a nice little commuter.

    I guess I don't get it. You're dropping 30 hp and adding approx 15 lbs relative to the FZ-09 and paying more? Nice looking bike, for sure, but so is mine now that I have it the way I want it.

    Well, its the ST version of the MT07- like the FJ09/Tracer is for the MT09 which costs around 10K. It gets extra goodies, is comfier, roomier (?) - though dont think TCS made it to this bike- and some people want those extras for traveling or commuting. I am pretty okay touring on fairing-less nakeds but others aren't so....different strokes for different folks.

    It's officially on the Yamaha UK website.

    Tracer 700 from £ 6,299.00 which is still priced lower than the MT-09 ABS which is from £ 7,349.00, but the 2016 MT-09 now has ABS and Traction Control as standard equipment.

    The 2016 Tracer 900 is now priced from £ 8,149.00.

    It's hard to say if Yamaha will bring the FJ-07 to North America???? since they haven't bothered giving us the XSR700 here either.

    I know Yamaha is trying to put more on the market to bolster sales and there will certainly be buyers of this bike. If they made it a true ADV that spends 50% of its time off pavement, I think it would be a great choice. A lot of people don't nessasarily want a bike the size, weight and horsepower of the big ADVs being sold right now. Although they're pretty popular.

    I just don't see where the touring/commuting version of this fits in. The FZ-07 is a great commuter with enough power to more than manage the task, so that slot is filled. And, if you're so inclined, the FZ-07 can be a fun sport bike as well. The FZ-09 offers the power and weight that makes it a very popular sport bike. And the FJ-09 fills the gap for touring.

    Forget about an FJ-07 and make it a middle weight Tenere

    My two cents.
    You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
