Comfort, performance and value are blended harmoniously into the Tracer 900. With Yamaha's successful CP3 inline three-cylinder engine, a sporty chassis and relaxed ergonomics, the Tracer 900 can tackle the twisties, the open road or the daily commute with poise.
The 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. Yamaha's D-Mode system allows the rider to adjust power delivery based on conditions and preferences.
An adjustable seat, adjustable windscreen, standard ABS, three-level traction control, three D-Modes and an 18-litre tank speak to the incredibly versatile nature of Yamaha's most affordable sport touring machine.
