The 2024 Tracer 9 GT+ is the first Yamaha to be equipped with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), and this advanced new system offers all the advantages of cruise control together with the ability to automatically maintain a fixed distance from the vehicle ahead.

The inbuilt millimetre wave radar that constantly measures the distance from the vehicle immediately ahead of the Tracer 9 GT +, allows the ACC to automatically control cruising speed, deceleration and acceleration to suit the road situation as it evolves.

The ACC is adjustable, and when the machine is in motion, its rider can select one of four different following distance options to suit individual preferences, displayed as one bar for shortest and four bars for the longest following distance. ACC offers a number of advantages, including reducingrider fatigue by requiring fewer rider inputs, as well as ensuring improved ride quality by maintaining a constant following distance, and also promoting smooth traffic flow.

ACC operates between 30 km/h and 160 km/h – in first and second gears from 30 km/h, in third and fourth gears from 40 km/h, and in fifth and sixthgears from 50 km/h. Speed can be selected in either 1 km/h or 10 km/h increments by pushing once or holding down the adjustment switch. ACC is deactivated by braking or gripping the clutch lever for more than 1 second, or rolling forward the throttle twist grip, beyond the throttle stop.

Tracer 9 GT+ riders have a choice of three different screen themes with the new full-colour TFT high luminosity meter. Each screen theme is designed to convey a different feeling to suit different riding styles and varying personal preferences.

Smartphone connectivity comes as standard on the Tracer 9 GT+ for an enriched riding experience. A Communication Control Unit enables riders to link their smartphone with the machine using Yamaha’s free MyRide app. The connection can be made via USB, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

Tracer 9 GT+ riders can also view a range of menus and functions using the new ergonomic controls on the left handlebar, and when the bike isn’t moving its new high luminosity 7-inch TFT screen is able to display everything from weather reports to detailed notifications. Garmin full-screen navigation can also be easily installed and downloaded from the App Store.

A newly designed handlebar switch assemblies employing a joystick and home button enable the rider to operate the wider range of functions, including smartphone connectivity and navigation. Both the right and left side clusters feature a
clear, logical layout and simple design.

This new cutting edge Sport Tourer is the first Yamaha to be equipped with the third generation quickshifter that gives an even wider range of functionality by allowing clutchless downshifts when decelerating and clutchless upshifts when accelerating.

The new generation KADS (KYB Actimatic Damper System) electronically controlled suspension system has been developed jointly with KYB and is designed to provide exciting sports performance together with an extremely comfortable ride.

This fully integrated front and rear suspension system is governed by the 6-axis IMU which monitors various sensors and automatically adjusts the damping forces via the Hydraulic Unit (HU) and Suspension Control Unit (SCU). KADS can be set in Sport or Comfort mode.

By analysing IMU data including the bike’s lean angle and acceleration, this sophisticated suspension system delivers a high quality ride with unmatched roadholding and elevated feelings,providing levels of confidence that confirm the Tracer 9 GT+ as Yamaha’s ultimate Sport Tourer.

For improved feel the rear brake diameter is increased by nearly 9% to 267mm, the rear caliper design is revised, and a new brake pedal as well as new clear smoke front and rear fluid reservoirs enhance the overall feeling of premium quality.

To accommodate its higher specification and give an even more refined riding experience and pride of ownership the Tracer 9 GT+ features various detail changes, including a new USB A outlet, a newly designed instrument panel bracket and revised windscreen stays. In addition, a new rear footbrake pedal bracket matches the new rear brake system.

The Tracer 9 GT+ is offered in the exclusive multi-toned colour scheme Icon Performance. The colourway employs a hand masked split-paint design to enhance the powerful body design and finishing quality. To find out more about the 2024 Yamaha Tracer 9 GT + visit your local Yamaha dealer.
