Whether it’s a weekend break or an ambitious long distance tour, the Tracer 9 GT+ has the performance, comfort and versatility to satisfy every rider’s lust for travel.
The unique formula of a high-torque 890cc CP3 engine, lightweight aluminium chassis, natural ergonomics and a luggage-ready design makes sure that Tracer 9 GT+ is ready to get up and go whenever required.
Featuring fully integrated cutting edge electronics including a millimetre wave radar, Adaptive Cruise Control, radar-linked Unified Brake System, electronic suspension and intelligent riding modes – as well as connected TFT instruments and fully integrated for Garmin navigation – the new Tracer 9 GT+ is ready to introduce a new era of control that will take the Sport Touring experience to the next level.
As standard the Tracer 9 GT+ is equipped with fully integrated heated grips, touring hard cases, each able to contain a full face helmet, LED lighting including cornering lights and a centre stand; providing the ultimate foundation for long distance touring.
Tracer 9 GT+ riders have a choice of three different screen themes with the new full-colour TFT high luminosity meter. Each screen theme is designed to convey a different feeling to suit different riding styles and varying personal preferences. With options giving a clean, contemporary look, a stripped down sports style or a visual identity inspired by Yamaha’s Jin-Ki Kanno development ideal, there is a visual theme to suit each rider.
For a high degree of stability and controllability the Unified Brake System incorporates a hydraulic unit that automatically distributes braking force from rider inputs to both wheels in an unobtrusive way. Tracer 9 GT+ is the world’s first motorcycle to adopt an innovative new radar-linked system that assists the rider’s braking input when required and adjusts front/rear braking bias when the distance to the vehicle in front closes to a certain level.
Both the new Adaptive Cruise Control and the radar-linked Unified Brake System use data from the new millimetre wave radar that detects the distance of the vehicle immediately ahead of the motorcycle. Weighing only 200g, this compact, integrated radar unit is situated behind a new protective cover at the front of the Tracer 9 GT+.
Operated by a simple joystick, the sophisticated new connected full-color 7-inch TFT screen features a choice of three display styles. Through Yamaha’s MyRide App you have access to your smartphone for music, weather, calls** and notifications. Full-map Garmin Navigation* makes every journey easier – while texts can be displayed when your Tracer 9 GT+ is parked. (* Full-map Garmin Navigation requires a subscription service agreement and is not offered in all countries. Some navigation features are not available in all countries, please check with Garmin for availability. ** Requires Bluetooth connected headset linked to the TRACER 9 GT+. Headset not included.)
The new generation KADS (KYB Actimatic Damper System) electronically controlled suspension system has been developed jointly with KYB and is designed to provide exciting sports performance together with an extremely comfortable ride. This fully integrated front and rear suspension system is governed by the 6-axis IMU which monitors various sensors and automatically adjusts the damping forces via the Hydraulic Unit (HU) and Suspension Control Unit (SCU). KADS can be set in Sport or Comfort mode and is able to adapt itself to a wide variety of riding styles by constantly adjusting damping forces to suit the prevailing riding conditions.
The height adjustable rider’s seat is upgraded with new padding and a revised shape for increased comfort. While a new leather-style cover is used to enhance the overall feeling of quality and pride of ownership of this flagship Sport Tourer. It’s now a more comfortable and refined place to spend a long day’s ride.
Tracer 9 GT+ is the first Yamaha to be equipped with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). With four adjustable different distance settings, this advanced new system offers all the advantages of cruise control together with the ability to automatically maintain a fixed distance from the vehicle ahead.
This new cutting edge Sport Tourer is the first Yamaha to be equipped with the third generation quickshifter that gives an even wider range of functionality by allowing clutchless upshifts when accelerating and clutchless downshifts when decelerating, even when the ACC is active.
Tracer 9 GT+ is driven by Yamaha’s highly acclaimed 890cc CP3 engine that produces strong, linear torque, making this flagship Sport Tourer a remarkable performer whether touring through the Snowies or commuting to the office. Equipped with Yamaha’s Acceleration Position Sensor Grip (APSG) and Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T), this lightweight system eliminates the need for cables and pulleys and delivers superb response with a natural feeling.
