2018 Yamaha Tracer 900


With the new 2018 Tracer 900, Yamaha has taken its popular FJ-09 sport touring platform and upped the ante with even greater comfort, performance and value. New styling, improved touring features and a new swingarm are among the highlights of the 2018 Tracer 900. With sport-minded performance and relaxed ergonomics, the Tracer 900 can tackle the twisties, the open road or the daily commute with poise.


The 2018 Tracer 900 utilizes a torquey and powerful 847 cc "CP3" (Crossplane Concept) engine that offers usable low-end torque and enough power to satisfy the most experienced sport rider. A Tracer-specific Yamaha D-Mode system allows the rider to adjust power delivery based on conditions and preferences.


The Tracer 900 takes the FJ-09's versatile nature to the next level. The relaxed, upright riding position is enhanced by a new seat shape and design, revised handlebar setup, new passenger footpegs and a larger windscreen. A longer swingarm improves cornering and drive characteristics, while styling has been freshened up with revised bodywork and a new rear fender. Standard ABS, traction control, D-Modes and an 18-litre tank further position the 2018 Tracer 900 as an incredibly versatile sport touring machine offering tremendous value at an attractive price.
