@SkyRider It is a heavy bike, no doubt about it. I'm 6'4" and 18 stone and with the weight of a full tank of petrol it made me nervous pushing it off of the stand to get going. I have a slight incline on my driveway to get into the garage and I couldn't wheel the Triumph in there, had to start the engine and ride it in - the Tracer is like pushing a bicycle in comparison. I will say this though, once on the move the weight disappears and the engine is buttery smooth - much smoother than the Tracer but it's a bit bland in comparison to the Yamaha. It doesn't handle as well as the Tracer either. If you want a dedicated upright touring only bike then the Triumph beats the Yamaha in most respects. However, if you want a light, sporty bike that's at least £4000 cheaper - then the Yamaha is the one.
