Any info if the U.S. market will be offered this Sport Touring hottie...?
According to Yamaha's website it will be here mid year, no pricing yet but photos and specs are there, interested to see the pricing. Hope to demo one in the spring, it looks a bit more refined than the FJ, plus the GT has about everything you need for a good solo sport tourer.
That is a damn good looking bike. But, I’m biased towards Yamaha...
Some foreigners might bring it on their rtw
Gimme one with an eight gallon tank and I'm THERE!!!
It has cruise control!
and supposedly improved weather protection and a revised seat.
Color me interested
Not much of a Yamaha guy, but that is a good looking bike!!!
...just wish it had the same shaft drive as the Super Tenere.
Yeah, the FJ-09 is my first chain driven bike and I'm not a fan honestly.
That and a bigger tank would be my wishes. Still its exciting. Im going to go test ride a current fj-09 just cuz.

I reckon this might be my next bike. I do love Yamaha’s current range, and while I was expecting the Tracer GT to my powered by the MT10 motor, I reckon this will be more than enough.
It’s a fine looking bike and hopefully will be correctly priced.
The triple motor is a blast!
I agree that a shaft drive would be awesome on this bike. My 2015 FJ09 gets about a 160-170 mile range per tank. A few more gallon tank wouldn't be bad either. This is a very good all around bike at a very good price. I hope Yamaha can keep a good price point with their GT version.
I'm intrigued and looking to dump my KTM 1190. I miss having a fun and reliable Yamaha.
I will be heading to the N.Y. Motorcycle show next month, and hope to see many of these new bikes. I don't remember any years in the recent past with so many new and updated bikes. Fell in love with the look of the Kawi Z900RS, but the Tracer GT checks a lot of boxes for me - especially cruise control. Would be nice for these new bikes to have a 200 mile range between fill ups. Just hoping the low seats on these bikes let me feel stable with my 29" inseam.

Exactly! The quickshifter sounds fun. I just hope the suspension isn't too terribly soft. I'd like it to be somewhat balanced out of the box. SS brake lines and HH pads and the bike should be well equipped for spirited days in the saddle. I'm excited! I hope Summer 2018 means June and not August. My patience with my orange bike has worn thin. I'm itching to put a lot of fun, trouble free miles on a sport touring rig next summer. I do not want my primary steed down for repairs one week a month.
Better chance with a Japanese manufacturer, IMHO.
If the suspension is anything like the standard Tracer 900, it wont be too soft. Its one of the few bikes i've had to drop the preload down from standard.
Same with my XSR9, rock hard and you feel every little bump in the road at standard settings.
Awesome! I like a stiff bike. Thanks for the info.
