Very true.

On the flip side I have seen people with adventure bikes also get a Ninja 300 or CBR 300 for sporty riding when they need it, also for more nimble commuting.

Often its an all-around bike and one or two for specific purposes.

Another reason why Yamaha isn't too interested in offering the Tracer in North America, is probably because they know there are already many different alternatives on the market. Between KTM, BMW, Ducati, Honda and Suzuki, they probably don't feel like they are well positioned to gain much market share.

Its probably because the bigger CC tracers already fill the gap. The current Tracer 900 is one of the best Tourer's around and quite frankly its best to consolidate interest to that over thinning it out to different segments. Especially when Americans always want more CC's even if they don't need it.
