Thinking about who will travel great distances and, at the same time, face low temperatures, the new Tracer 900 GT 2020 has gained handle heaters, in addition to new handlebars and new hand protectors.

The handlebars are narrower, allowing for a more natural riding position that improves comfort and even helps keep the rider's arms out of the airflow. The handguards were redesigned to be slimmer and lighter.

For an even more personalized adjustment, very convenient when transporting the pillion or luggage, the new Yamaha touring now offers a return adjustment of the rear shock and a practical remote spring preload adjustment that eliminates the need for tools.

A new rear suspension scale made the wheelbase go from 1,440 to 1,500 mm, generating a more stable and balanced behavior during driving.

New Tracer 900 GT 2020 even brings autopilot

Another important item incorporated into the 2020 model of the Tracer 900 GT launched in Brazil is the autopilot, essential to make long journeys more pleasant, as it reduces the fatigue of the arm and right hand while riding.

This system can be used to control the cruise speed from 4th gear onwards, between 50 km/h and 180 km/h, and works via a switch on the left side of the handlebar, which can be used to increase or decrease the speed of cruise.

To automatically cancel its operation, simply apply the brakes, clutch or accelerator. The autopilot also has a button that allows the rider to reset the previous setting.

New Yamaha MT-09 Tracer 2020 Engine

Considered one of the main highlights of the new Tracer 900 is the three-cylinder engine inherited from the MT-09. Called CP3, it comes with the same Crossplane technology used on Valentino Rossi's Yamaha M1 in MotoGP.

This technology not only allows a low level of vibration, but mainly because it delivers torque and power in a linear and progressive way.

There are 115 maximum horsepower at 10,000 rpm and torque of 8.92 kgf.m at 8,500 engine revolutions.

The new Tracer 900 2020 launched in Brazil brings electronic traction control. It is responsible for dosing the engine's torque delivery to the rear wheel and helps it detraction in sudden accelerations or when there is low grip on the ground.

There are two adjustment options in it: mode 1 prevents the wheel from slipping in any situation, while mode 2 performs a moderate control, intervening less in driving.

In addition, the system can be turned off to make riding even more exciting, ideal for those who use the Tracer in a more sporting way, even on a track day.

In the piloting modes (D-Mode), responsible for adapting the engine's responses according to the pilot's use, the new Tracer 900 GT has 3 options: B, STD and A. Where on the scale, option B is milder and option A is the most aggressive. STD is among them.

And to top it off, the Tracer 900 2020 sold in Brazil comes with the new Quick-Shift system. It is possible to change gears without using the clutch, thanks to a sensor next to the gear pedal that identifies the movement when the gears are going to be engaged.
