Stating a thread to keep the new launches in one spot.

Let’s see and hear what you like at the show

Hopefully someone from the Forum is in Milan

Like the new Yamaha Tracer 700 and the new BMW F900r and F900XR

That Tracer 700 is gorgeous, wonder if Canada will get it
There's a launch for it at Powersport T.O next Thursday 3-6pm, by College and Bathurst.
So yeah, we're getting it in time for next season.

Edit: whoops, got the Tenere and Tracer mixed up*

I wonder if that Tracer's wheels can be used on the T7, then the T7 could be one nice supermoto setup and 2in1.

Looks like 2020 could be the last year for the FJR. For 2020 Europe's getting a final special edition called the Ultimate Edition.

Yamaha Ultimate Edition

All existing bikes will have to be Euro 5 compliant to be on sale in Europe on Jan 1, 2021. I would expect a huge number of older models, including my Tenere 1200, to be dropped instead of redesigned to meet standards.

Do we think they will replace it with something?

Most of the classic sport touring bikes are or will be gone due to the shift in the market to the cross sport Adventure type bikes like the Multistrada, S1000XR, Versys and Yamaha Tracer 900GT.

Kawasaki revealed a modest refresh of their Ninja 1000 and still have their Concourse but like the FJR have not had a major design update and will be faced with a similar decision. But already have their Versys 1000 in the market.

I could see Yamaha doing a Tracer 10 GT. As a replacement for the FJR.

As stated before in this thread, the Euro 5 compliance will weed out many of bikes that do not show a strong ROI.

BMW still have the R1250 RS but they can this as it shares the platform of the high volume GS line.

This is definitely going to streamline model lines of the manufacturers. Too many bikes are just hanging on simply because they already exist. The sales numbers aren't there to do a proper redesign, unless the can poach the engine/frame from a better selling model.

Wouldn't surprise me if Yamaha made another big adventure style bike, offering a street version with 17's and a dirt version with 17/19's. The classic sport touring style bike market is dead, would be surprised if there are any new ones.
