well hello folks. my name is john.
I dont own an MT-07 but I do have a Tracer 700 basicly the same bike but with a little fairing on.
can't say much about it at the mo as the weather is horrible and cold so it is off the road till the weather picked up.

Welcome, John. That looks like a much more comfortable bike than the FZ. Congrats!
 
 

I would trade my FZ for a Tracer and suffer the plank.

Hi, sat on the Tracer 700 at the NEC Birmingham on Thursday,
feels much more comfy as a mile eater than the MT and a bunce
test feels like it has a bit more damping on the rear

thanks for the welcome.
once the weather pick up next march I'll be able to give the gen on this bike.
so far put a rad/guard on ,made a rack for it.
bought a powerbronze belly pan.
this rack is only a template to set up a jig for future builds of these racks to sell.

I can't tell from the pic but does that fairing offer any wind protection to the hands? Just curious.

Sweet bike. I would have bought the Tracer if it would have been available in 2014. Ho well, the FZ is still a great bike and has an awesome engine.

Does the Tracer 700 have ABS? Or is all that limited to the FJ09?

I believe it has: in Europe, new bikes have to be equipped with ABS in order to be sold.

Sorry I did not think about it. I am wondering if it will have ABS in the US.

Nothing to apologize for! :) 
Hopefully it'll reach the US... and hopefully they'll give the ABS option throughout the whole range of models... hopefully, hehe.

So is it too late or could Yamaha still announce a 17 tracer in the USA?

as for wind protection?I've only test ridden it.
what I will say the hand guard is next to useless but looks nice but thats about it in the short journey that I've ridden it.
I wasn't going to buy one till march but got a very good deal on.
bit sat in my garage since but I've put a few accessories on it.
will tax it in march if weather turn for the better.
we're expecting 4" of snow by the weekend,I know it not much compared to some of you guys. we rarely get snow these days.
when I was a kid back in the 50's we used to get snow that use to come up half way up the day..in other words I couldn't see passed it but now....
instead we get a lot of rain and ice etc.
once the weather pick up and I start riding I'll give the gen and pictures of our little country side.
heres some pictures of our rides last year...a taster if you like

mine does not sure if the USA will get it though. I have no doubt that USA will get them in the near future ,you already got the FZ07 but you got that after about a year that we had in europe.
its proving already to be a big seller  and I'm sure it will be in the USA.
