The Tracer 700's inline 2-cylinder engine has been developed using Yamaha's 'crossplane philosophy'. The special 270-degree crank gives an uneven firing interval to produce a strong feeling of acceleration and great traction for an exciting ride - while the deep linear torque ensures outstanding performance.
