Tracer900 GT

About to pull the trigger on a 2019 Tracer 900 GT.  Haven't been this excited (about a bike) since I got my FZ-07 in 2015.  It's been an awesome bike but it's time to get something with just a little more for what I want.

Im in love with that bike, specifically the GT version. Only thing holding me back really is the with of the motor makes it feel way to tall for me 5'9. Its a slick bike tho

@Bigturbomax, I too had that concern as I am 5'9" with a 30 " inseam.  I rode the FJ-09 a couple of years ago and found it tall, but when i rode the tracer 900 gt the other day I was fine with it.  I might get some boots with a thicker sole to give me a little more reach.

Congatulations! I hope you have many happy miles with it. I still wish we could get the tracer 700 in the states 😕

i spent 2 years and too much money turning my FZ07 into a light touring machine lol.

I am lusting after a Tracer too, but I just don't see myself taking enough long trips to make it make sense.  Around town, my feeling is that the MT07 is still the better bike.

Hi Everybody.  New bike is awesome.  Day three of ownership and its raining.  I put it in B mode (rain) and went to my old parking lot to do some figure 8s and u-turns (life-long learner here!).  Bike is bigger for sure so I wanted to give it some practice at slow speed.  I gave it a little stretch on the highway yesterday...all I can say is wow!  If y0u are looking for a boring bike, don't get this one!  I'm still a huge fan of the FZ-07/MT-07 platform so will stay on this forum.

@intensity_white, I agree that for more urban-focused riding the MT-07 would be better.

Yes I quite like the color!  I was a little concerned that I'd be like road camo with the grey but I'm going to get some brighter gear.

Great looking bike! I'm thinking of getting one as well, and have the same inseam measurements as you. Can you report on how you've been dealing with the height of the bike?

Will do.  Commute to work is about 20 miles round trip -- combo of highway, back roads and urban.  Today was a holiday so tomorrow is when reality hits.  Give me a few days for some honest feedback on height.  Real test will be the parking lot where I usually get my groceries (there's something a little off about how it was engineered in places).  Cheers!
