MT-09 Tracer Released

3 Mar 2015

The original MT-09’s agility, screaming three-pot engine and fantastic affordability was a game changer.

Now Yamaha has taken the concept one step further with a sports tourer that combines an aggressive character with serious long distance potential to shatter the myth that bikes in this class should be heavy, ponderous and expensive.

Equipped with a sharp looking cowling as well as a large capacity fuel tank – and benefiting from an adjustable riding position – the Tracer is developed as the ultimate weekender; capable of two-up-touring, or solo fun, with or without the standard side panniers.

But this is no ordinary tourer, and the Tracer’s torque-laden crossplane triple-cylinder engine, with traction control is built to thrill, while at the same time providing functionality few can match. Just take a look at some of the stand-out features below:

  • 847cc, 3-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-valve engine
  • ABS, Switchable TCS, Y-CCT and Tracer-specific D-MODE selectable running modes
  • Multifunction dot matrix instrument panel
  • Aerodynamic cowling with twin LED headlights
  • 3-position height adjustable windscreen, upright riding position, height adjustable seat
  • Large capacity long-range 18-litre fuel tank
  • Side panniers as standard for all NZ models
  • Ultra-light aluminium frame and swingarm bring dry weight in at 190kg or 210kg ready-to-rip

This stunning machine has already sent the Northern Hemisphere press into a frenzy at the recent European launch, with some of that feedback below:

“Will there be a better bike this year” – Ride Magazine

“A brilliant 115hp do-it-all motorcycle” – Bike Magazine

“Already a leading contender for 2015 Bike of the Year” - MCN

The Tracer will be available from March onwards with an RRP of $17,999 + ORC. For detailed product information on the new Sports Tourer from Yamaha, please click here.
