Editor Tony Carter is out in Italy on the world launch of the Yamaha MT-07 Tracer 700. He’s sending through live updates:


First impression is great all rounder, at £6299, it will sell loads. It is very capable, and on Michelin Pilot Road 4 tyres, smooth and predictable.

Brakes are predictable and progressive, but not loads of initial bite. Engine delivers power from 2000rpm and lives mostly in the midrange.

Great riding position and decent protection from the adjustable screen.
