    New 2018 Tracer 900 & 900GT

    They will be releasing the new Tracer 900 next year, with a few upgrades.

    Official: Yamaha Tracer 900 and Tracer 900GT | EICMA 2017





    Might be a good opportunity to pick up an older FZ-09 or MT-09 off the shop floor for a reasonable price

    Too bad they didn't fatten the fairings and tank for the GT model... but at least they've improved the suspension.
    I'd expect it to be ~12k€ in Europe...

    I read somewhere that recent-vintage bikes all look like something out of a Transformers movie. Can't get that phrase out of my head, and now it is all I see.

    Re: New 2018 Tracer 900 & 900GT

    Ever since it was announced, I look daily for information on the new Tracer 900 GT. They posted it up on Yamaha UK site recently.

    https://www.yamaha-motor.eu/uk/produ...er-900-gt.aspx

    New 2018 Tracer 900 & 900GT-6963b6e4-a3f3-4a5e-a9c1-bf562393ccfa-3899-000004052612d03c-jpg

    Can't wait until this is released in the US (supposedly in the fall) so I can take a test ride. Three different colors available - I like the Phantom Blue. Fully adjustable suspension! Cruise control! Heated Grips! Color TFT display! Oh my.

    When they presented the bike at the shows, one of the claims was "A 60 mm longer swingarm which improves the feeling of drive from the rear tire".
    But the specs on the Yamaha Europe site show 85" chassis length, same as the 2017 FJ-09. Not sure but seems like chassis length would increase as swingarm length increases. Maybe not. Also - fuel tank stays at 4.8 gallons. Was hoping for more but that'll do.

    The price may be a deal breaker however. Listed for 10,649 pounds....$15,000 US dollars. Yikes - although the site says that includes 20% Value added tax.

    Any one else looking forward to this release??

    Eek. That's a "Rip-off Britain" price. Looks like a great practical bike. Hopefully the throttle response isn't anything like early FZ09s.

    I wish Yamaha would come out with a 4 cylinder crossplane tourer. An FJ-10 I guess.

    Rumor has it that the FJR is going to become a 1400 crossplane, although since they just refreshed that bike in 2016 I'm not sure what the timeline on that would be.

    Sweet. That would really make the bike stand out. Aftermarket cans would be required- it would be a crime to have that engine and barely be able to hear it.

    Re: New 2018 Tracer 900 & 900GT

    US Pricing and availability for the GT announced a few days ago. Will start arriving in dealerships this month. Disappointed by the MSRP, however. US $12,999.

    Was hoping for something around $11K. Wishful thinking I guess. Still, I wonder how they arrive at an MSRP. Same Tracer 900 GT on the Yamaha Canada page shows MSRP of CAN $14,599....converted to US that's $11,147.

    Why would they price the same bike in the US as $1850 more expensive than Canada? Wonder if it's in anticipation of demand. Maybe I should head North to pick one up???!!!

    Heh, you should come to Croatia - it's listed ~16.100,00 $ for cash.

    Oh well, another used bike I can look forward to 10 years down the line

    Wow that is a LOT of coin for that bike! It's a very fun machine, but that price can get you a lot of other options. Like a lightly used Duc Multi or a new V-Strom 1000.
    I really enjoyed FJ09 the few times I rode it, but I knew it could never be my only bike for 1 reason: I ride 2up a lot and the distance from rider pegs to passenger pegs is unacceptably small. The heels of my size 11 Sidis were hitting passenger pegs when I was riding on the balls of my feet.. obviously no foot space for passenger.
    Now.. for a solo hooligan bike? Yes please!
