Yamaha MT09 Tracer 2017

by petervog

Model History:

The technology of the Tracer 900 comes directly from the MT-09, adding a partial fairing and windscreen, a bigger fuel tank, ABS brakes, handguards, center stand, a 12-volt power socket, on/off switchable traction control, revised fuel map, and three riding modes. It also gains a dash, which is very similar to the XT1200Z Super Ténéré. The Tracer 900 utilises LEDs for the headlights, tail lights, brake lights, but not the indicators. The handlebars are significantly higher and wider and are closer to the rider due to the seat being further forward, and the handlebars being further back than the MT-09, making for a much more upright riding position. The rear subframe is bigger and more robust and incorporates factory supports for lateral cases. The suspension has stiffer springs and more damping and preload than the MT-09.

The FJ-09 variant is electronically limited in its performance to an indicated 191 km/h (119 mph). The bike was launched in 2015 as the "MT-09 Tracer" in most markets, and as the "FJ-09" in North America. From 2016, the bike was renamed to "Tracer 900" in Europe and the US, the same year the Tracer 700 was introduced in Europe, based on the MT-07 (FZ-07 in North America). In Japan, South America, Australia, and New Zealand, it has continued with the original name of "MT-09 Tracer." Starting in 2017, the Tracer 900/FJ-09 gained the three-mode adjustable traction control and new assist-and-slipper clutch unit found on the XSR900 and FZ-09/MT-09 siblings.

Starting in 2019, Yamaha offers an up-spec model called the "Tracer GT," which includes the same engine, frame, and body design as the standard Tracer, but with factory saddlebags (now color- matched) as standard, cruise control, an updated full-color LCD dash based on the unit from the
Yamaha R1, and a new windscreen design that can be adjusted with one hand while riding, instead of the older two knob system designed to be adjusted from a stop
