Up-spec Tracer 900 GT represents sport touring, refined
June 6, 2018 (Toronto, ON) – For Canadian motorcyclists looking for a premium sport touring experience without the premium cost, Yamaha has introduced the 2019 Tracer 900 GT.

Based on the latest Tracer 900 (formerly FJ-09) revised in 2018, the GT version of this versatile sport tourer comes with increased comfort and convenience for the rider who demands high specification as standard. The Tracer 900 has long been praised for its harmonious mix of sport performance and all-day comfort; the GT version brings a refined quality to this already respected platform.

Highlighting the amenities of the Tracer 900 GT are standard, colour-matched 22-litre hard cases and a full-colour thin film transistor (TFT) instrument screen. Enhanced rider comfort comes from standard heated grips and cruise control, while a quickshifter and upgraded, fully-adjustable suspension take the GT’s sportiness to the next level.

The 2019 Tracer 900 GT retains all of the hallmarks that have made the FJ-09/Tracer 900 a success on the streets, including the intoxicating 847 cc “CP3” crossplane-concept inline triple, three drive modes, traction control, ABS and a relaxed, upright riding position.

Updates carried over from the newest variation of the Tracer 900 include new bodywork, a larger, adjustable windscreen, revised seat design, new passenger footrests and hand grips, and a longer swingarm for improved drive and handling.

The Tracer 900 GT comes in black metallic and bluish gray, carries an MSRP of $14,599, and is expected to arrive in Canadian dealerships by July of 2018.
