Turn up your experience

Hard side cases capable of carrying a full-face helmet and featuring colour coordinated panels are fitted as standard. You can also fit an optional top case if you need extra space – and the fully-floating luggage carrier system gives a natural riding feeling even when fully loaded.

For confident night-time riding, the TRACER 9 GT is fitted with LED cornering lights that get brighter as you lean further – while ten-stage adjustable grip heaters keep your hands warm whatever the weather. And for ultimate sports versatility, this high-tech performance bike comes with up-and-down QSS for smoother and faster gear changes.

KYB semi-active suspension

Fully adjustable electronic suspension front and rear is governed by the 6-axis IMU and ECU which activate the Hydraulic Unit (HU) and Suspension Control Unit (SCU). Damping settings are instantaneously adjusted via a solenoid in order to achieve a smooth and secure ride – regardless of the load or riding conditions. Mode is set through the TFT interface.

Hard side cases

All new hard side cases with matching colour panels are fitted as standard equipment. Each case can accommodate a full face helmet – and for a natural riding feeling the cases are mounted to a fully floating carrier system. An optional top case can also be fitted, and total load carrying capacity in up by 7% to 193 kg.

Up and down Quick Shift System (QSS)

TRACER 9 GT comes equipped with an up and down Quick Shift System (QSS) for faster and smoother clutchless gear shifting. A sensor on the shift rod detects movement and the ECU momentarily cuts drive torque to the 890cc CP3 engine to give seamless mid-corner gear shifting that maintains chassis balance and stability and also ensures more relaxed cruising.

LED cornering lights

Next-generation LED cornering lights highlight the apex of every bend to help guide you in the darkest nights. Brightness is automatically increased as the banking angle gets steeper, giving a clear field of vision that allows sportier riding long into the night. System operates when the bike is leaning at more than 7º and its speed is at least 5 km/h.

Grip heater

Fully integrated 10-level grip heater is fully controllable by the handlebar scroll wheel and monitored by the TFT meter. Specially shaped grips feature thinner rubber that allows efficient transmission of the heat for all-weather riding comfort.

Dedicated colours and graphics

Tracer 9 GT is offered in exclusive Yamaha Icon Performance colouring and graphics that give a premium finish reminiscent of the R1M, adding a level of sporty sophistication to the machine. Also available in Redline and Tech Kamo.

EU5 890cc CP3 engine

Developing higher levels of linear torque at lower rpm, the new larger-capacity 890cc liquid-cooled CP3 engine produces remarkable acceleration and thrilling corner exit speeds, making this the sportiest TRACER ever. Optimized gear ratios plus the refined A&S clutch deliver super-smooth performance – and the glorious growl from the new twin-tail exhaust and redesigned intake system amplifies the thrill of every ride.

Lightweight CF aluminium die-cast frame

The next generation TRACER 9 GT is equipped with a newly-designed CF die-cast aluminium Deltabox frame providing higher levels of rigidity that gives sport bike agility with sure-footed stability. The redesigned aluminium swingarm is 64mm longer to ensure excellent high speed stability without compromising the bike’s nimble handling character.

6-Axis IMU plus lean-sensitive rider aids

TRACER 9 GT is now equipped with some of the most advanced electronic rider aids that give you added confidence and precise controllability in different weather and road surface conditions. Developed from the R1M, the compact 6-axis IMU governs a lean-sensitive 3-mode Traction Control System (TCS), as well as a Slide Control System (SCS), front wheel LIFt Control System (LIF) and Brake Control system (BC).

Next generation design and styling

Compact and aerodynamic new body design gives the TRACER 9 GT a modern and impressive look that perfectly conveys the bike’s exciting sporting character alongside its versatile touring capabilities. The lightweight fairing enhances your riding comfort over long distances, and the 19-litre fuel tank gives a 350 km+ range between fuel stops.

Full LED lighting

Compact LED lighting is featured throughout the TRACER 9 GT. Separate high/low mono-focus headlights give the bike a dynamic new look and provide superior illumination in any situation. LED flashers reinforce the bike’s premium status, and the signature TRACER family taillight enhances the bike’s lightweight looks and sporty feel.

Twin 3.5” TFT meters

Twin 3.5” TFT screens provide intuitive, easy-to-read data that enables you to focus on your riding while being kept fully informed. While the left screen displays key operational information such as speed, rpm, gear and rider aid mode, the right screen features non-critical data including odometer, temperature and trip 1 and trip 2.
