Compact and lightweight 850cc 3-cylinder engine

At the heart of the Tracer 900 is an 850cc 3-cylinder engine that generates deep, linear torque and strong high rpm power. Equipped with forged pistons and offset cylinders, this compact and lightweight engine is ready to bring the passion and emotion back to your two-wheeled riding experience.


Advanced electronic controls

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.


Lightweight CF die-cast aluminium frame

A key ingredient in Tracer 900's success is the use of a lightweight and compact CF aluminium die-cast frame whose excellent balance of rigidity contributes towards this Sport Tourer's agile and responsive handling character. Solo or two-up, highway or back road, the Tracer is built to respond instantly and accurately to rider inputs.


Aerodynamic sports cowling with LED headlights

For increased rider and passenger comfort the Tracer 900 is equipped with an aerodynamic cowling that gives this Sport Tourer an edgy and aggressive image. Featuring dual LED headlights and a 3-step-adjustable screen, this wind-beating bodywork underlines the Tracer's genuine long distance potential.


Assist and Slipper (A&S) clutch

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.


Sculpted 18-litre long range fuel tank

In order to give an estimated range in excess of 300km between refills, the Tracer 900 is fitted with a large capacity 18-litre fuel tank. 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 Touring bike.


Asymmetric CF die-cast swingarm

The Tracer 900's asymmetric CF die-cast swingarm gives a low unsprung weight for responsive suspension action and a comfortable ride for both rider and passenger. An almost horizontal rear shock is situated beneath the seat, while the externally mounted swingarm pivots keep the centre section of the chassis slim for a relaxed riding position.


Genuine Yamaha accessories

Yamaha have developed a wide range of Genuine Accessories that enable you to personalize your bike and make it your own. With mounting points for optional side cases already in place and a wide selection of performance, touring and comfort parts, it's easy to create your perfect Tracer 900!
