Tracer expands the triple cylinder concept into a lightweight all-action tourer that mixes sharp handling with long distance touring ability.
Light and compact, Tracer dispels the myth that touring motorcycles need to be big, heavy and cumbersome. This daily ride sports tourer is versatile enough to have fun two-up on the open road as well as on the weekday commute.
The eager 3-cylinder engine character combines low-rpm torque with high-revving horsepower. It is smoother than a twin, while the engine is narrow for a comfortable knee grip.
The fuel tank has a generous 18 litres capacity, the modern engine has a low fuel consumption good for 300kms between refills. Featuring a narrow centre section and knee indents for added riding comfort, the tank's sculpted design accentuates the modern and edgy image of this stylish and versatile Sport Tourer.
In order to enable the rider to optimise the performance characteristics of the high-torque 3-cylinder engine, the MT-09 Tracer runs with a compact and lightweight aluminium chassis. The space-saving and weight-reducing features employed on the new engine have given our designers great freedom in the design of the frame.
This leading Sport Tourer gets a range of upgrades that are designed to ensure greater levels of long distance comfort. Narrower handlebars and a larger screen give improved wind and weather protection, while the new rider and passenger seats, improved passenger footrests and grab bar design make long journeys even more enjoyable.
For smoother downshifting when entering a bend, the latest model features an Assist and Slipper (A&S) clutch. By helping to eliminate any sudden shocks to the transmission caused by the downshifting process, the A&S clutch helps to maintain chassis stability and poise to give a higher level of controllability.
For effective operation in different conditions, you can select any one of the three D-MODE running modes. The 3-mode Traction Control System (TCS) gives added confidence on slippery surfaces, while the ABS prevents accidental wheel lock up when braking. And with the wiring already in place, it's easy to fit an optional Quick Shifter System.
The Tracer 900's bodywork has been completely redesigned, giving this hugely successful Sport Tourer a more prestigious appearance. The latest model features a more refined, high quality body panel design with a new air intake area on the front cowl that enhances the overall looks and feel.
