2018 Tracer 900 and Tracer 900GT
Turn up your emotions
Launched three years ago, the Tracer 900 has quickly become established as the definitive Sport Tourer in the fast growing sub-1000cc class. With its thrilling sports performance, agile handling and the ability to handle long distances with ease, the stylish Tracer 900 has become one of Yamaha’s best-selling models with over 35,000 units sold.
If there’s one key element that accounts for its widespread success, it’s the fact that this beautifully styled motorcycle is one of those rare models that has the ability to excel in almost any role, from long distance touring through to sport riding and day-to-day commuting. Powered by Yamaha’s much loved 847cc CP3 engine whose strong linear torque makes the Tracer 900 so enjoyable to ride, this truly versatile model represents the true spirit of motorcycling.
2018 Tracer 900. Taken to a higher level
For 2018 Yamaha’s team of designers have concentrated on reinforcing the much loved strengths and values of the Tracer 900, while also introducing a range of updates and changes that are aimed at enhancing the bike’s touring potential – as well as delivering an even more refined, high quality product.
Improved wind protection and refined body style
There’s 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. For enhanced passenger comfort the 2018 model also features a revised passenger footrest assembly together with the newly designed grab bars.
Yamaha’s designers have also made subtle but efficient revisions to all of the body panels and covers in order to improve the overall look, feel and quality of the 2018 model. A new air intake area on the front cowl gives a more refined appearance, and the design of the fuel tank’s sidepanels and side wings are also revised to enhance the overall style.
Revised rear geometry for improved touring characteristics
For 2018 the 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.
Increased rider and passenger comfort
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 permitted.
