The Yamaha 'Tracer' name has been trademarked in the Indian market. This is certainly good news for us motorcyclists who have been waiting for a performance motorcycle from Yamaha. The Yamaha Tracer is a sport-touring motorcycle that has been on sale in international markets for a while now. Now it seems like it is getting to the Indian market too.
It was only recently that yamaha confirmed it was focusing more on performance motorcycles. The brand revealed that it would be concentrating on premium motorcycles with an engine capacity of over 150cc in the Indian market.
In the days since then, Yamaha has unveiled the new YZF-R7, and has registered a trademark for the FZ-X which is a neo-retro motorcycle based on the FZ-S. Now, there is a new trademark that is creating headlines in India. Yamaha has trademarked the Tracer name in the Indian market.
The trademark was filed in 2017 and post several delays and setbacks, was finally approved in February this year. At this moment we are unsure if the brand filed a trademark for the Tracer 700 or 900. Either way, it is good news for the Indian market as Yamaha has until now been hesitant to launch big capacity motorcycles.
The Yamaha Tracer is one of the best-looking Yamaha motorcycles currently in production. Yamaha makes the Tracer 700 and the Tracer 900 and both cater to buyers from different segments. It gets a front fascia that at first seems inspired by the Yamaha MT series.
It features large radiator shrouds and the stance of an ADV motorcycle. However, the riding position is tuned more towards comfort to cover long distances with ease. It also comes with top-notch electronics and lots of riding aids.
The Yamaha Tracer 700 is powered by a 689cc, parallel-twin engine with a maximum power output of 73.77bhp and a peak torque output of 68Nm. The Tracer 900 on the other hand gets an inline-three-cylinder engine with a maximum power output of 113.42bhp and a peak torque output of 87.5Nm.
If launched in India, the Yamaha Tracer 700 will compete with the upcoming Aprilia Tuono 660. The Yamaha Tracer 900 on the other hand will compete with the likes of the BMW F 900 XR and Triumph Tiger 850 Sport if launched in India.
More details about the launch of the Yamaha Tracer in India are expected to surface in the coming months. Given that Yamaha is considering the YZF-R7 for an India launch, the Tracer 700 makes more sense as both motorcycles are based on the same platform and use the same engine too.
Thoughts On Yamaha Tracer Being Trademarked In India
Yamaha has in recent times changed its approach to performance motorcycles. Back-to-back reports of bigger Yamaha motorcycles coming to India are perfect indicators of Yamaha's intentions for the near future. The YZF-R7 might come to India soon, and we expect the Tracer 700 also to be launched.
