    Congrats on the new bike! It appears to have many of the desired upgrades for a modern machine and I think the blue color will grow on you.

    The blue is the BEST!!

    Pictures don't do it justice, it is a stunning colour and thankfully it doesn't have gold forks.

    I gave my blue Tracer a good blast today and I'm loving it

    Congrats on your new ride. It's a great feeling, especially when you look at in your garage. You just can't believe it's yours.

    Too true, it's quite neat at the mo so I guess I spend more effort keeping it that way.

    What's the fuel tank capacity and range like?
    Have they fixed the jumpy throttle response that the fz6 has?

    Re: My new bike, in the slower blue :)

    Niel the tank capacity on the Tracer is 18 Liters, as opposed to the 19 liters of the FZ6. Not sure about range as I rarely keep it in the "ECO" Zone (this is displayed on screen) .

    Personally I never had an issue with a snatchy throttle so I guess they ironed that out with the S2. But whilst on the matter the Tracer 09 for 2017 has been slightly tweaked to comply with the new emmission rules, and strangely enough it tends to splutter a bit at lower revs (which the pre 2017 apparently didn't).

    How do you enjoy the superwide handlebars?

    Re: My new bike, in the slower blue :)

    I really like them, (counter) stearing is so much easier slight drawback is that sometimes I can't quite filter where I used to on the FZ6.
