Adaptable performance, good value and a long list of sport touring features makes the new Tracer 900 the perfect ride partner.
Features may include:
The Tracer 900 features an 847cc liquid-cooled, inline 3-cylinder, DOHC, 12-valve engine derived from the award winning MT-09. This engine combines high-tech components such as offset cylinders, fracture-split connecting rods and staggered intake funnels with a crossplane concept crankshaft to deliver an exciting, sporty engine character with plenty of torque for flexibility and relaxed highway comfort.
Crossplane Concept CP3® Engine
The Tracer 900 “crossplane crankshaft concept” engine provides linear torque development in response to the rider’s throttle input, for responsive engine thrust with a strong feeling of power in the low- to mid-rpm range. To boost refinement and provide a smoother ride, the CP3 engine uses a compact counterbalancer to cancel out vibration.
Assist and Slipper Clutch
Yamaha’s assist and slipper clutch gives the rider smoother, more confident downshifts when entering corners aggressively, as well as a lighter pull effort at the lever in day-to-day riding, all while easily handling the torque of the 847cc high-output motor.
The ride-by-wire YCC-T system senses the slightest throttle input by the rider, instantaneously calculates the ideal throttle valve opening, and then actuates the throttle valves to actively control intake volume. This technology contributes to the rider’s feeling of torque and controllability from the 3-cylinder engine.
Selectable Engine Character
The Tracer 900 is equipped with Yamaha D-MODE (or “Drive Mode”) variable throttle control system. The rider can choose at will from three throttle valve control maps for different throttle response characteristics, each tuned specifically for the Tracer 900.
For excellent damping characteristics, the front suspension is an inverted fork with 41mm inner tubes with 5.4 inches of travel. The front suspension features adjustment for spring preload and rebound damping.
Compact, Horizontal Monoshock
The rear suspension features a linked-type Monocross® shock. The shock is positioned below the seat and features an almost horizontal alignment. This unique positioning contributes to mass centralization and a slimmer body design. The rear suspension is also adjustable for spring preload and rebound damping.
Powerful, Controllable Brakes
Front brakes consist of two floating 298mm discs with 4-piston calipers. The calipers are radial mounted for improved feel just like Yamaha’s race-winning supersport machines. The standard anti-lock brake system (ABS) works to help prevent wheel lock during hard deceleration for additional braking security.
The new windscreen is now taller, for improved wind protection and features a new one-handed adjustment system to three positions without the use of tools. Front nose to tail, the Tracer 900 features updated bodywork for a higher-quality, more cleanly integrated design.
The Tracer 900 comes standard with a centerstand for added rider convenience when parking or performing cleaning and maintenance.
