The Yamaha Tracer 900 has established itself as the definitive middleweight sport touring model, with a strong and loyal following throughout Europe. For 2018 the Tracer 900 builds on the strengths of original model, while offering enhanced touring potential and an even more refined, high quality product. Improvements include redesigned body panels, and the new model is equipped with narrower handlebars and slimmer handguards, as well as a new larger screen offering better weather protection and 1-hand adjustment.
Rider and passenger comfort is improved with a new seating position, together with redesigned passenger footrests and a new grab bar – and a newly designed aluminium swingarm as well as revised rear shock settings to further enhance the bike’s touring performance.
Developed from the Tracer 900 and sharing the same 2018 specification upgrades, the Tracer 900GT offers sport touring riders the ultimate package at a competitive price.
The new Tracer 900GT is equipped with a range of exclusive features including quickly detachable 20-litre colour matched hard side cases, as well as full colour TFT instruments and heated grips.
Gold coloured forks underline the GT model’s exclusivity, while the rear shock features a new remote preload adjuster – and with a quick shifter and cruise control as standard, this is the ultimate Tracer 900.
Both models share the same 847cc 3-cylinder engine with an A&S clutch, and the electronics package includes 3-mode TCS and D-MODE selectable running modes for optimum performance in all conditions.
With a slim and lightweight CF die cast aluminium frame, large capacity 18-litre fuel tank, main stand and ABS as standard, the Tracer 900 and Tracer 900GT models offer one of the most comprehensive specifications in the class.
