New Motorcycles Sport Touring TURN UP YOUR EXPERIENCE Featuring an all-new engine and premium sport touring features that come standard, the most versatile touring partner for when you're commuting or riding across the mountains. Features CHASSIS / SUSPENSION LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINUM FRAME: To achieve both sporty performance and excellent riding comfort, the Tracer 9 GT adopts a developed lightweight aluminum frame with model-specific tuning. Using the latest Controlled Filling (CF) aluminum die-casting technology, this frame features the thinnest sections ever on a Yamaha die-cast frame at just 1.7 mm (thinnest section on the 2020 Tracer 900’s frame is 3.5 mm). STRONG STEEL SUBFRAME: The Tracer 9 GT's steel subframe ensures excellent straight-line stability and cornering ability, even when outfitted with a large fuel tank and three hard rear luggage cases. REDESIGNED LIGHTWEIGHT, HIGH-RIGIDITY SWINGARM: The Tracer 9 GT features, longer swingarm that is now located inside of the frame. It has a boxed construction formed by welding together aluminum plates. The swingarm helps achieve both high rigidity and lighter weight, conveying the feeling of drive force to the rider and aiding with excellent traction at high speeds and when cornering. LIGHTWEIGHT SPIN FORGED ALUMINUM WHEELS: The Tracer 9 GT employs lightweight wheels. Manufactured using Yamaha-exclusive spinforging technology, these wheels contribute to outstanding handling. With a notable 11% decrease in the momentum of inertia at the rear, these wheels make for a big contribution to the Tracer 9 GT’s agile handling character. NISSIN RADIAL FRONT BRAKE MASTER CYLINDER: To provide excellent controllability, Tracer 9 GT features a radial Nissin master cylinder for the front brake. The piston in the master cylinder moves in a direction parallel to brake lever travel, contributing to a more linear supply of hydraulic pressure for excellent controllability. ADJUSTABLE RIDING POSITION: The riding position was designed to accommodate riders of varying physiques and includes a two-level adjustable main seat. The handlebars and footpegs can also be adjusted to two different positions, allowing riders to set a position that gives them a secure feeling the moment they get on the bike. The handlebar clamps can be rotated 10mm forward changing the bar position 9mm forward and 4mm up, and the footpeg mounts can be raised 14mm higher as well as 4mm rearward. KYB® ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED SUSPENSION: Jointly developed with KYB® to deliver both sporty performance and a comfortable ride, the Tracer 9 GT features an electronically controlled suspension. The suspension provides optimum damping force that is based on real-time running conditions for great riding comfort and feel from the road. Based on input from the six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), the Engine Control Unit (ECU) and the Hydraulic Unit (HU), the Suspension Control Unit (SCU) calculates the optimum settings for suspension damping. The damping adjustment mechanism is solenoid-driven which enables changes to the damping force to be reflected quickly, and big damping force changes are possible. This suspension system generates steady damping force even when the suspension piston is moving slower, which contributes to stabilizing the motorcycle’s attitude when starting from a stop as well as stabilizing the chassis attitude when accelerating, braking and cornering. The electronically controlled system controls the rebound and compression damping for the front fork and rebound damping for the rear shock. SPORT & COMFORT MODE: The Tracer 9 GT suspension has two modes: Sport (A-1) and Comfort (A-2). Sport mode is geared toward sporty riding on dry roads but can also accommodate wet conditions. Comfort mode is aimed at providing a comfortable ride on rough asphalt roads or roads with potholes.
