Yamaha has strengthened its Sport Touring line with the new
Tracer 900 and the Tracer 900GT. Major upgrades have been done to the best
selling Tracer 900 and which is now available in 2 variations, the Tracer 900
and Tracer 900GT. Launched three years ago, the Tracer 900 has quickly become
established as the definitive Sport Tourer in the fast growing sub-1000cc class
with sales of over 35,000 units. The motorcycles are powered by the Yamaha 847cc
CP3 engine which delivers a strong linear torque.
NEW YAMAHA TRACER 900
The new Tracer gets a larger windscreen that offers better
upper body weather protection for a more relaxing and enjoyable ride on longer
journeys - and with its manual height adjustment facility, it can be quickly
set to the desired position. The new model also features a revised passenger
footrest assembly together with the newly designed grab bars.
A new air intake area on the front cowl gives a more refined
appearance, and the design of the fuel tank's side panels and side wings are
also revised to enhance the overall style. The new Tracer 900 is equipped with
a newly designed aluminium swingarm as well as revised rear shock settings to
further enhance the bike's touring performance, allowing the installation of
Genuine hard side cases.
Both the rider's and passenger's seats are new for 2018, and
as well as giving higher levels of comfort, they also enhance the premium look
and feel of the Tracer 900. The rider's seat can be adapted for height in 2
positions, high and low, to accommodate your personal riding style. Plus,
there's a soft pad on the tank for added rider comfort on longer journeys.
The Tracer 900 also benefits from narrower handlebars
together with slimmer and lighter hand guards. The new layout gives a more
natural riding position for added comfort, and the new handlebars help to keep
the rider's arms out of the airflow at higher speeds - and the reduced width
also helps to improve the bike's lane filtering abilities - where it's

Quick Shift System
The Tracer 900GT's Quick Shift System transforms
acceleration performance of the bike by allowing the rider to make seamless
clutchless upshifts. Based on the system used on the latest MT-09, the QSS gives
this premium Sport Tourer an even more exciting character that's sure to be
appreciated by performance minded riders.
The Tracer 900GT also benefits from the fitment of a cruise
control system as standard equipment. It's the same system that's used on the
MT-10, and can be set to control the riding speed in 4th 5th and 6th gear when
riding between 50 km/h and 180 km/h. This system is operated by a switch on the
left handlebar cluster, and can be used to increase or decrease cruising speed
in 2 km/h increments.
Advantages include reduced right arm and hand fatigue on
long journeys, and also being able to maintain a constant speed when riding on
hilly or uneven roads - as well as being able to set a speed that complies with
speed limits that are 40 km/h or above. The system is automatically cancelled
by the application of brakes, clutch or throttle, and features a resume button
that allows the rider to reset to the previous setting. The Tracer 900GT also comes with heated grips.
