As you can see in the video, I find the Tracer 900 to be a fun, engaging, and practical motorcycle. And I love the features. The dash is great, the quickshifter is a hoot, and I’m a fan of cruise control. Then again there’s the steadfast Versys 650, with terrific luggage, touring capability, and great chassis, all for $9,000. All of the Tracer’s fancy kit (and extra horsepower) might be a selling point for me, honestly, and make me consider this bike over some of the others in the category. But I would secretly wonder if a bike made for itself might be better than a dressed-up version of another model. So, Yamaha, how about a crossplane Tracer 1000? That’s got to be worth fourteen grand, right?
