Designed to Offer Sport Touring Rriders the Ultimate Package
Launched three years ago, the Tracer 900 has quickly become established as the definitive Sport Tourer in the growing sub-1000cc class.
The Tracer 900 GT is a model that comes with a premium specification as standard. Developed from the Tracer 900 and sharing the same 2018 specification upgrades, the Tracer 900GT is designed to offer sport touring riders the ultimate package.Its class-leading specifications includes a full colour TFT instrument panel, quick shift system for clutchless upshifting, cruise control, genuine hard panniers as standard, fully adjustable suspension and heated grips, the Tracer 900GT is ready to take you anywhere.
The eager 3-cylinder engine character combines low-rpm torque with high-revving horsepower. It is smoother than a twin, while the engine is narrow for a comfortable knee grip.
The high-specification forks come with a gold finish to underline the premium specification of the GT model, and feature separated damping functions – with compression damping in the right fork leg, and rebound damping in the left fork leg. For easy and convenient rear suspension set up there's a remote preload adjuster for the rear shock.
The Tracer 900GT's bodywork has been completely redesigned, giving this fully equipped Sport Tourer a more prestigious appearance. The latest GT model features a more refined, high quality body panel design with a new air intake area on the front cowl that enhances the overall looks and feel.
The high-specification GT model comes with Quick Shift System (QSS) for seamless upshifting, and for effective operation in different conditions, you can select any one of the three D-MODE running modes. The 3-mode Traction Control System (TCS) gives added confidence on slippery surfaces, while the ABS prevents accidental wheel lock up when braking.
For smoother downshifting when entering a bend, the latest model features an Assist and Slipper (A&S) clutch. By helping to eliminate any sudden shocks to the transmission caused by the downshifting process, the A&S clutch helps to maintain chassis stability and poise to give a higher level of controllability.
The Tracer 900GT is a premium specification Sport Touring model that comes fitted with quickly detachable genuine hard side cases as standard. So whenever you want to get up and go at a moment's notice, the Tracer 900GT is ready.
The GT version of Yamaha's leading Sport Tourer gets a range of upgrades that are designed to ensure greater levels of long distance comfort. Narrower handlebars and a larger screen give improved wind protection, while the new seats, improved passenger footrests and grab bar design make long journeys even more enjoyable.
In order to enable the rider to optimise the performance characteristics of the high-torque 3-cylinder engine, the MT-09 Tracer runs with a compact and lightweight aluminium chassis. The space-saving and weight-reducing features employed on the new engine have given our designers great freedom in the design of the frame.
The fuel tank has a generous 18 litres capacity, the modern engine has a low fuel consumption good for 300kms between refills. Featuring a narrow centre section and knee indents for added riding comfort, the tank's sculpted design accentuates the modern and edgy image of this stylish and versatile Sport Tourer.
