On September 28 in Toronto, Yamaha Motor Canada continued to roll out its 2019 motorcycle lineup with the release of the 2019 MT series, Tracer 900, FJR1300ES and a pair of scooters, the SMAX and BWS 125.
The MT series of naked motorcycles will once again include the MT-07, MT-09 and MT-10. The MT-07 (formerly FZ-07) was updated in 2018 with new styling and suspension, and remains a major player in the middleweight naked class thanks to its lively 685 cc inline twin and nimble chassis. The MT-09 (formerly FZ-09), the bike that rocked the industry when it debuted in 2014, returns with all the hallmarks that have made it a top-selling motorcycle in Canada. Lastly, the aggressive-looking MT-10 continues to prey on the naked class with its R1-derived engine and standard quickshifter.
Yamaha’s two key sport touring models also return for 2019, the FJR1300ES and the Tracer 900. The FJR1300ES comes with standard electronic suspension and creature comforts like heated grips, cruise control, an electronically adjustable windshield and 61 litres of storage capacity. Meanwhile, the Tracer 900 (formerly FJ-09) offers plenty of sport performance combined with a relaxed riding position for touring comfort.
Leading the 2019 Yamaha scooter lineup are the 155 cc SMAX and slightly smaller BWS 125, a pair of urban scooters with ample storage and enough punch to keep up with road traffic.
