“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Yamaha Tracer 700 revealed

AS we predicted earlier today, Yamaha has just revealed the new MT-07-based Tracer model, first seen in spy shots last year.
Contrary to expectation, it's called the Tracer 700, not the MT-07 Tracer. 
Using the same frame and 75hp, 689cc parallel-twin engine as the naked MT-07, it does what the MT-09 Tracer did for the 07's bigger brother, bringing touring capability to one of the most affordable and fun packages on the market. 
It's been given a 50mm longer swing-arm than the MT-07, to give a wheelbase of 1,450mm. Suspension settings have been revised for long-distance according to Yamaha, to give 'smooth and responsive characteristics in a variety of conditions'. 
Tank capacity has grown from 14 to 17 litres and it's gained a manually-adjustable tall screen as well as hand-guards with incorporated indicators. 
It's got 'Tracer 900-style' dual headlights, a new one-piece stepped dual seat and pillion grab-rail.
Accessories include 20-litre soft panniers, a 39-litre top box and a taller screen. 
It's set to go on sale from July this year at £6,299 in red, blue or black.
