While the new Yamaha R1 and R1M are stealing the Tuning Fork headlines this year at EICMA, Yamaha also introduced another new model: the FJ-09, or MT-09 Tracer for the European market. Based on the FZ/MT-09 naked bike, the FJ-09 slots in below the FJR1300 as a more Sport-Touring machine for the entry level crowd. To meet the S-T needs for which it was designed, the FJ gets a host of new items like an adjustable windscreen, larger fuel tank, traction control, ABS and provisions for saddlebags, among others. E-i-C Kevin Duke is on hand at EICMA, where he gives us his first impressions of the FJ-09 after its worldwide unveiling.

    It's actually a potent machine for touring purposes.

    Can we now confidently say that there is a new genre, Adventure styled Sport Touring?! I'm anxiously awaiting a shootout between the 2015 FJ-09, Versus 1000, VStrom 1000, Triumph Expolorer, Caponord, and Multistrada.
