G'Day.
Just wondering if anyone has a MT-09 tracer and if so what's your verdict ?.Have you any good/bad points about them.In Ausralia they (Yamaha) say not to use top box with panniers/ any comments on that ?
.With thanks.

Hello mate :-)

I have had my Tracer for 5 months now and it is bloody brilliant! Plenty of power and the triple engine has tons of torque, it's a really fun bike. Centre of gravity feels quite low and it tips in the bends nicely and handles really well! Lots of people say the standard screen is no good for them but I have no issues with it myself. Have you ridden one yet? If not get one out and see what you think!

I can't comment on the top box with panniers thing as I haven't used either on my bike. Did Yamaha say why you shouldn't use the top box with panniers? Seems a bit odd to me!

Hi had a tracer for 9 months and used with Giving rack and top box ( no issues). My thoughts on the bike, fantastic engine, great MPG, good handling, OK brakes, even 'comfort' seat was not comfortable. Rear shock went off after about 5k miles. Px for MT10

Have to say I am very tempted by the MT10 Touring edition! Might test ride one and see what it's like...... Which could lead into some sort of purchase haha
