Premium specification comes as standard
Joining Yamaha's Sport Touring range for 2018 is the Tracer 900GT, a new 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 at a competitive price.
Genuine hard side cases fitted as standard
The Tracer 900GT comes fitted with quickly detachable 22-litre colour matched Genuine hard side cases as standard, allowing its rider to get up and go from day one.
Full colour TFT instrument panel
Tracer 900GT riders get a unique view from the cockpit, with the latest TFT (Thin Film Transistor) instrument panel. Featuring a full colour display, this high specification instrument panel provides a comprehensive range of information, including gear position indicator, ambient temperature, coolant temperature, current riding mode, fuel gauge and fuel consumption.
The Tracer 900GT is equipped with a premium suspension package that features fully adjustable front forks offering the rider the ability to set their bike up to suit different loads and conditions. These fully adjustable forks come with a beautiful gold finish.
For easy and convenient suspension set up when carrying a passenger or luggage, the Tracer 900GT features a remote preload adjuster for the rear shock. It's the quick and effective way to set the bike up.
Quick Shift System (QSS)
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. Cruise Control makes longer journeys more enjoyable, and also can help to avoid exceeding speed limits.
The Tracer 900GT is an all-weather, all season motorcycle that's built to get across continents, and the provision of heated grips is a real bonus for the serious Sport Touring rider.
