We are already at the start of the second half for 2022 and usually this is the time where motorcycle manufactures starts to unveil what’s in store for the coming year.
- The Yamaha Tracer 9 GT likely getting the adaptive cruise control function for 2023.
- 2023 Tracer 9 GT could feature radar technology similar to Ducati Multistrada V4.
Looks like Yamaha has some big news for us already as the Japanese firm is likely introducing radar-assisted cruise control function for the upcoming Tracer 9 GT.
Yes folks, the sports tourer motorcycle will feature the fancy radar technology as reported by Motorrad.
The German publication managed to capture a spy shot of what appears to be the Tracer 9 GT underwent a road test in southwest Germany. You can check their spy shot photos HERE.
From the photos, you can see that there is a conspicuous box attached in between the front headlamp. Motorrad also claimed that it could be a Bosch unit, similar to the one installed on the Ducati Multstrada V4.
However, while the Multistrada V4 also feature radar technology at the rear for its blind spot function, the Tracer 9 GT could be missing out on that particular technology.
Nevertheless, while these spy shot did not revealed much a part from the new technology, it could be well enough to highlight that Yamaha is moving towards radar-assisted function for the future.
Then again, everything is mere speculation at this point and the adaptive cruise control system could still be in an early stage and the Tracer 9 GT might just be a lab rat for Yamaha to test out the new feature.
One thing is clear however, we might know the rest of the story from Yamaha in the coming months.
