Advanced electronic controls

For effective operation in different conditions, you can select any one of the three D-MODE running modes. The 3-mode Traction Control System (TCS) gives added confidence on slippery surfaces, while the ABS prevents accidental wheel lock up when braking. And with the wiring already in place, it's easy to fit an optional Quick Shifter System.

Assist and Slipper (A&S) clutch

For smoother downshifting when entering a bend, the latest model features an Assist and Slipper (A&S) clutch. By helping to eliminate any sudden shocks to the transmission caused by the downshifting process, the A&S clutch helps to maintain chassis stability and poise to give a higher level of controllability.

Longer CF die-cast swingarm

For an even more powerful feeling of drive force when accelerating, the Tracer 900 is now equipped with a 60mm longer aluminium swingarm. As well as conveying an improved feeling of power, the extended swingarm gives a longer wheelbase for excellent high speed stability, as well as giving improved traction characteristics when exiting corners.

Lightweight CF die-cast aluminium frame

A key ingredient in the Tracer 900's success is the use of a lightweight and compact aluminium frame whose excellent balance of rigidity contributes towards this Sport Tourer's agile and responsive handling character.

Main stand

The Tracer 900 has a comprehensive specification that includes a main stand, making it easier to attach and detach luggage because the bike is upright. When you're covering long distances, the main stand also facilitates routine maintenance chores such as lubricating the chain, and checking or adjusting tyre pressures to suit different loads.
