Yamaha's new MT-09 Tracer/Fazer look alike

Yamaha add another model to the ever-growing, best-selling MT range for 2015 as they lift the covers off a multi-role edition of the MT-09 in Milan.

Designed to deliver the performance of the MT-09’s triple cylinder motor in combination with long distance capabilities, the MT-09 Tracer is fitted with aerodynamic bodywork, an adjustable riding position as well as switchable traction control and ABS.

With long distance journeys in mind, the MT-09 Tracer boasts refined comfort for both rider and passenger and features a large capacity 18-litre fuel tank, 4 litres larger than the design used on the other MT-09 models. Yamaha claim the bigger tank and efficient 850cc motor mean the Tracer will manage ‘in excess’ of 300km (186 miles) between refills.

For wind protection the MT-09 Tracer is equipped with a newly designed cowling fitted with a height-adjustable windscreen which can be changed between three settings without the use of tools.

Prices are yet to be revealed but the bike, available in Matt Grey, Lava Red and Race Blu paint schemes, will be available from March 2015.

Highlights:

  • 847cc 3-cylinder Crossplane Concept engine
  • D-MODE running mode selection with three Tracer-specific settings
  • Y-CCT (Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle)
  • Switchable TCS (Traction Control System) fitted as standard equipment
  • Light, compact and slim aluminium frame
  • 190kg dry weight / 210kg wet weight
