Interesting choices, the Tracer stands out as a road bike amongst 2 adventure models. With the BMW and Triumph having 19″ front wheels they should deal with potholes and the generally rougher nature of unsealed roads better than the Yamaha with it’s 17 inch front wheel. It also looks like the BMW and Triumph have some sort of bash plate to stop stones hitting the bottom of the motor which the Yamaha does not.

Beyond that ride them all and buy the one that makes you grin most.
