Yamaha is pleased to announce the release of the Tracer, a new model designed as the ultimate weekender.
By combining a dry weight of just 190kg with the popular high torque 847cc triple engine of MT-09, Tracer carves its own niche as a practical yet sporty motorcycle equally comfortable two-up touring or solo scratching.
This bike is ready to take on the higher capacity bikes from the competition, says Oliver Grill from Yamaha's Product Planning department. Its power-to-weight ratio is great and in the mountains you can ride faster than litre-plus bikes from our competitors.
He continues The low weight, combined with the powerful, explosive engine and the practicality of the bike gives Tracer a unique place in the market. Dedicated touring bikes are much heavier and more expensive.
Stunning 3-cylinder Engine
847cc liquid-cooled, in-line 3-cylinder, DOHC, 12-valve Crossplane Crankshaft Concept engine derived from the award winning MT09. This engine combines advanced high tech components including YCC-T and Yamaha D-Mode, with a crossplane concept crankshaft to deliver an exciting, torquey and quick-revving engine character.
Advanced Engine Control
Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) is Yamaha's exclusive ride-by-wire throttle system, derived from MotoGP technology. YCC-T works in unison with the standard Traction Control System (TCS) to give the rider responsive throttle feel with the security of traction control for roads with less than ideal traction.
Practicality Plus Performance
Touring amenities include a height-adjustable windshield, side fairing, adjustable riding position, 12V electrical outlet and a generous 18L fuel tank. The Tracer is ideal for the daily commute, short fun rides, or Touring our beautiful country
Powerful, Controllable Brakes
Modern radial-mount four-piston front calipers squeeze 298mm rotors for exceptional stopping ability, while the anti-lock brake system (ABS) works to help prevent wheel lock during hard deceleration.
Top Shelf Features
A modern and stylish LED headlight offers superior visibility and complements the Tracers design. Multi-function dot matrix LCD instrument panel is designed to visually relay data to the rider quickly and clearly, including fuel consumption info and gear position.
