This is the 2018 Yamaha Tracer 900GT. While heated grips are nice and a TFT dash is visually pleasing when compared to the stock bike’s LCD display, it is the suspension that really sets the GT aside as it addresses the standard Tracer 900’s main fault.
The extra composure and improved ride quality it delivers gives the GT the impression of being a more refined product, a sensation further enhanced by its improved specification. If you own a Tracer 900, and love it, the GT is a significant leap forward in terms of ride, quality and specification and is worth upgrading to.
