Yamaha’s all-new 2019 Tracer 900 GT is a premium, touring-ready replacement for the FJ-09 sport tourer. Weighing a little over 500 pounds and equipped with cruise control, saddlebags and other touring amenities, it’s ideal for the solo traveler. Click on the player below to see Rider‘s video review.


  1. Yup – ugly and tip over = busted signal light.

    Speaking of tip-over, why do riders feel the need to cross the center line with their upper body. Doing this on a blind curve could be disastrous!`

  2. Checks a lot of my boxes…light, nimble and fun with Yamaha’s excellent saddlebags. Unfortunately, I sat on one and with the tall seat height—even with the seat adjusted to the lower setting; it is too tall and negates the lighter weight. Guess I’ll keep my trusted FJR.

  3. Exhaust is hideous. Wheels are one color, bags another, gold forks, yellow shock? Needs shaft drive. No one produces a middleweight shaftie anymore cept for Guzzi which has no dealer network. Suzuki bring back 850G or Honda 700SC with shaft drive, oil cooled, no adjust valves. Seca 750. Where have all the good shafties gone?

  4. I ride a 2014 FZ O9 bought new and love it. Installed a fuel controller and headers. Now the bike is a winner in town and on the road. I have always owned Yamahas and I am 80 years old and I ain’t done yet. Waiting for my magazine to get here
