New Tracer on the way. Yamaha is doing a reveal November, 17. Not sure if it is US or Europe.
Those pictures have been all over the internet for a couple weeks now. I have a 2019 GT that I wrecked last month. If it ends up being totaled, I’ll give this a good look, but might end up going for a used BMW XR.
I like the look of that Yamaha
I dont care for the looks.
It reminds me of what Kawasaki did with the Versys 1000 in 19 adding bulk to the front fairings.
Very nice bike, the GT with hardcases that accept a helmet is a great change, aswell as a quichshift up and down, and I like the look of the whole bike...however...
2 seperate instrument clusters?! So from 1 smallish TFT to two 3,5 inch displays, that are separated...if you add a satnav that's 3 screens to look at. Can't help but feel that's not a good idea...
I waited on this release, but I think it's going to be a Triumph 900, Rally Pro propably for me...shame, I rode the T900GT and I liked the engine, disliked the cases and the quickshifter not being in both directions, they fixed that but now the instrument cluster...that's a no from me!
I'd roll this bike without hesitation.
Looks great and the only thing I don't like is the chain drive.
Looks kind of weird but we got color and plenty of info provided without cycling through menus.
Looks like electronic suspension is standard in the price.
New lightweight frame;
New 890cc engine;
New up/down quick shifter;
New ECU with 6 axis IMU;
New LED headlights with cornering lights.
S-10 has been my plan for along time, but FJ-09/Taser would be easier with my back/hip problems.
But the foot peg position looks more back set than my v-storms more neutral pegs.
Might be more uncomfortable for me to spend time on.
Rode buddies 1200 Explorer out around lake and the peg position made it miserable for me.
Great motor, but think it hurt my buddies feelings when I said I couldn’t wait to get off of it.
I rode FZ-09 years back in Long Beach and gotta say that was a fun motor, wish the demo was unescorted
It's available in the U.S and the full specs/pictures are up on the U.S website: https://www.yamahamotorsports.com/sport-touring/models/tracer-9-gt
Chillis, I think you might need to change the title of thread to Tracer 9 GT as that appears to be the new nomenclature. Much better name than Tracer g00GT .
So glad we are getting the red color besides the silver with burple wheels. Panniers look like the bike was rear ended but who cares now that it will accept a full face helmet.
Those panniers do look funky.
Almost like they are falling off!
Vegas, this is from the Yammi website regarding ergonomics:
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.
Looks fantastic and a big upgrade on the existing GT model. Love the styling, new dash, new IMU, Cornering ABS, semi-active suspension, up/down QS, larger cases, bigger engine with more torque. All the things I wanted that weren't in the existing model. For me, I'll have to wait until around this time next year, so a 2022 model which will no doubt just have some colour changes. Great job Yamaha, can't wait for the ride reviews.
Just missing a hydraulic clutch but Magura will sort that out.
Happy passengers with the legroom though.
I think it looks great (but I'll miss the goo). Big jump in price puts it out of my range though, glad I bought my '19 when I did.
Many people complained about windscreen noise on the last Tracer 900GT and some went so far as to sell the bike for that reason. I did ride one and noticed quite a bit of noise and wonder if that has been addressed on the new bike? Anyone know how much more torque we get?
Technically speaking I prefer the Tiger 900GT for the 19" front wheel but the bike has about 20 fewer hp so it will be less sporty to ride. It will of course be a better ADV bike but it also costs about $1,500 more. Now if Yamaha made an ADV version of this bike . . . oh wait . . . that is the Super Tennere 700.
7% more torque at 1500rpm lower (as per MT09)
Gosh damn these new bikes are getting fuglier! Looks like Yamaha and Triumph have saved me a lot of money, I’ll just keep my 10-year old bikes.
I love my Yamaha's but $17K for this bike, no thanks.
The 2021 Yamaha Tracer 9 GT will arrive at authorized Yamaha dealers beginning in March and will be available in the Liquid Metal and Redline color schemes for $14,899.
Duh, I was looking at a Canadian site
