Yamaha announced the release of the MT-09 Tracer on November 4 2014 as a variant based on the popular MT-09 sports model powered by an 850cc in-line three-cylinder engine.[4] They released in the European market in early March 2015.

The MT-09 Tracer is based on the current MT-09 model that is popular for its ability to respond as the rider intends and powered by an in-line three-cylinder Crossplane Concept engine. The MT-09 TRACER was developed under the concept of a “Sporty Multi-use Bike” and is intended to provide sporty yet comfortable riding in a variety of situations, including urban riding and touring.

After 20 years producing the TDM, Yamaha Motor Company stopped the production in 2011. In 2014 rumors and photos leaked on the internet showed a new design of sport touring motorcycle with many similarities between the TDM and this new machine. In 2015 Yamaha released the MT-09 Tracer (FJ-09 in North America) developed from the MT-09 technology. Even when nobody at Yamaha mentioned the TDM during this project, many professionals and fans believed it is the direct successor.[5][6]

The bike was launched as the “MT-09 Tracer” in most markets, and as the “FJ-09” in North America. From 2016, the bike was renamed to “Tracer 900” in Europe, the same year the Tracer 700 was introduced in Europe, based on the MT-07 (FZ-07 in North America). In Japan, South America, Australia, and New Zealand, it has continued with the original name of “MT-09 Tracer.” Starting from the 2019 model year in the United States, it was renamed to Tracer 900. For 2021, a completely redesigned model was introduced, changing the name again, this time to “Tracer 9” (and “Tracer 9 GT” for the better equipped version).

The technology of the Tracer 900 comes directly from the MT-09, adding a partial fairing and windscreen, a bigger fuel tank, handguards, centerstand, a 12-volt power socket, on/off switchable traction control, revised fuel map, and three riding modes. It also gains a dash comes directly from to the XT1200Z Super Ténéré. The Tracer 900 utilises LEDs for the headlights, tail lights, brake lights. The handlebars are significantly higher and wider and are closer to the rider due to the seat being further forward, making for a much more upright riding position. The rear subframe is bigger and more robust and incorporates factory supports for lateral cases. The rear arm suspension is longer than the MT-09. The suspension has stiffer springs and more damping and preload than the MT-09.[1][2]

The FJ-09 variant is electronically limited in its performance to an indicated 191 km/h (119 mph).
