Yamaha kickstart its 2023 motorcycle range with the new radar-enabled Tracer 9 GT+. 

  • The Tracer 9 GT+ is the new flagship for the Tracer 9 family for 2023. 
  • The Tracer 9 GT+ is the first Yamaha to feature Adaptive Cruise Control and Unified-Braking System. 

The Iwata manufacturer brings a wide range of updated model for 2023 including the updated Niken GT, Tracer 7 and Tracer 7 GT. However, by far the most significant is the introduction of the new Tracer 9 GT+. 


Described as “the most technologically advanced Yamaha motorcycle ever built,” the Yamaha Tracer 9 GT+ takes the Japanese marquee sports tourer range to a greater height thanks to new added technology and features.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Perhaps the most fundamental addition to the Tracer 9 GT+ is the new radar-guided Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) that is introduced for the first time on a Yamaha. 

The ACC – when activated – keeps a constant distance between the bike and the front vehicle. In addition the ACC is also integrated with the engine braking control that will engaged in the event of deceleration. 

Yamaha also claimed that the ACC will also adjust the KADS (KYB Actimatic Damper System) to optimise rider and passenger comfort.

In addition, the ACC also utilise cornering assist and passing assist. 

Third-generation quickshifter

The Tracer 9 GT+ is the first Yamaha to equipped with a third generation quickshifter. The QS is integrated with the ACC hence allowing the rider to change gear while the ACC is turned on. 

Unified-Braking System (UBS)

Interestingly, the Yamaha Tracer 9 GT+ is the first motorcycle to feature UBS which is only enable when Brake Control (BC) is active. 

The UBS features brake assist, front and rear brake assistance and cornering brake control. All of the aforementioned features works on the event of collision, deceleration and while cornering to prevent from sliding. 

7-inch TFT Instrument Cluster

Elsewhere, the Tracer 9 GT+ is also equipped with Yamaha’s top of the range 7-inch TFT instrument display that features Garmin navigation system and smartphone connectivity. 


Spy shots from the next generation Yamaha Tracer 9 GT was circulated online in July and showcased the sports tourer getting a major upgrade.

  • 2023 Yamaha Tracer 9 GT to feature radar-assisted cruise control.
  • Patents confirmed the radar unit to sit between the front headlight. 

Reports from reputable media at the time, including CycleWorld indicates that the Tracer 9 GT will feature radar sensor technology. 

However, latest development has confirmed that the Yamaha Tracer 9 GT is getting the  radar technology according to a new patent.

That said, this suggest that the Tracer would become the most affordable (or least expensive) motorcycle to feature the fancy radar-assisted adaptive cruise control and emergency braking systems.

More importantly, Yamaha did a great job to hide the ugly electronic unit as opposed to the Ducati’s Multistrada V4, KTM’s 1290 Super Adventure S and BMW’s R 1250 RT.

Based on the patent, the radar unit can be seen nestled between the Tracer 9 GT’s lower headlights.

Also, Yamaha fitted a thin cover in front of the hardware to ensure better protection from mud, gravel, water or insects from hitting the sensor directly.

In addition, if the thin cover is scratched or chipped, it can be cheaply replaced. 

Yamaha is likely to introduced the new technology to the 2023 Tracer 9 GT.  

Baru-baru ini, beberapa gambar ‘spy shot’ mendedahkan bahawa Yamaha Tracer 9 GT akan dinaik taraf dengan teknologi radar.

Kehadiran teknologi itu bermakna Tracer 9 GT baharu itu akan menawarkan fungsi ‘Adaptive Cruise Control’ sepertimana yang terdapat pada Ducati Multistrada V4, KTM 1290 Super Adventure dan BMW R 1250 RT.

Bagaimanapun, motosikal sport touring dari Yamaha itu dijangka hanya akan menggunakan teknologi radar depan sahaja berbanding Multistrada V4 dan 1290 Super Adventure yang mempunyai radar dibelakang bagi fungsi ‘Blind Spot Detection’.

Namun, ketiadaan teknologi radar di bahagian belakang juga mungkin antara aspek yang telah dipertimbang Yamaha dalam usaha memastikan Tracer 9 GT masih lagi dalam linkungan harga mampu milik berbanding jenama Eropah lain.

Namun, dalam perkembangan terbaru, Yamaha juga akan menaik taraf bahagian papan pemuka Tracer 9 GT.

Berdasarkan gambar ‘spy shot’ terbaru, jelas menampakkan sebuah paparan skrin TFT berwarna tunggal menggantikan skrin berkembar 3.5-inci yang terdapat pada model sebelumnya.

Skrin yang lebih besar itu juga memberi bayangan bahawa Yamaha akan menawarkan fungsi ‘smartphone connectivity’ bagi membolehkan penunggang menghubungkan telefon pintar kepada skrin untuk tujuan navigasi dan sebagainya.

Walaupun Yamaha masih belum mengumumkan sebarang tarikh pelancaran bagi generasi baharu Tracer 9 GT, melihat kepada rupa bentuknya yang serba lengka dan siap sepenuhnya, pastinya pengumuman itu akan dibuat tidak lama lagi.

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.

Yamaha Motor Corporation USA issued a recall notice for some of the 2021 Yamaha Tracer 9 GT.

The vehicle safety recall is due to a faulty throttle grip that could break if the grip is used to pull up the bike after lying on its side.

The breakage could lead to a restricted throttle movement, affecting the rider’s input and subsequently increasing the risk of a crash.

It is estimated that 453 bikes are affected by the recall produced between February 15, 2021, to July 8, 2021.

Meanwhile, a possible warning that the rider might notice is an unexpected resistance when applying throttle and a potential slow return to idle when the throttle is released.

Yamaha advises that affected owners should not ride the motorcycle until proper service is performed.
