2016 Yamaha FJ-09 Review

2016 Yamaha FJ-09 on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

The Yamaha FJ-09 offers the most performance, versatility and value packed into a single motorcycle…


The most performance, versatility and value put into one motorcycle – the FJ-09 with its 3-cylnder engine dominates the competition.

Conquer Road

Designed around the concept of a “Versatile, Sporty Multi-Use machine”, the FJ-09 offers a comfortable and exciting ride whether taking a relaxing tour or hitting the hustle of the city on your daily commute. An upright riding position, wide handlebar and adjustable seat design combine with the exciting power of the 3-cylinder Crossplane Concept engine to create a machine that will leave you grinning after every ride.

/// Power
The FZ-09 based 850cc in-line 3-cylinder fuel-injected engine offers great real world performance. The power is perfectly suited for normal street riding with a wide spread of “right now” torque and power even from low rpms. And the exhaust note combined with the overall engine character must be experienced.

/// Versatility
It would be great to have a bike for commuting, sports riding and touring, but for most that isn’t realistic. Enter the versatile FJ-09 and you have a machine that can do it all. The potent engine, lightweight chassis and ABS brakes are perfect for the twisties. While the comfortable riding position, new seat and 18 litre fuel tank are ready for exploring the open road. And for those days when work gets in the way the FJ-09 is sure to be one of the bright spots.

Note the FJ09 is called the MT-09 Tracer in Europe

The two souls of the Dark Side

The original MT-09 was a game changer. Now we’re taking the concept one step further with an action tourer that combines an aggressive character with serious long distance potential. Introducing the uncompromising new MT-09 Tracer.

Equipped with a sharp looking cowling as well as a large capacity fuel tank – and benefiting from an adjustable riding position – the Tracer is built to take you all the way in comfort.

But this is no ordinary tourer, and the Tracer’s torque laden triple cylinder engine with traction control is built to thrill. With its lightweight aluminium chassis as well as high-tech brakes and ABS, the Tracer lives for the next corner. One bike, two souls.



2016 Yamaha FJ-09 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

Stunning 3-cylinder Engine
847cc liquid-cooled, in-line 3-cylinder, DOHC, 12-valve “Crossplane Crankshaft Concept” engine derived from the award winning FZ-09™. This engine combines advanced high tech components including YCC-T® and Yamaha D-Mode, with a crossplane concept crankshaft to deliver an exciting, torquey and quick-revving engine character.
•Advanced Engine Control
Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) is Yamaha’s exclusive ride-by-wire throttle system, derived from MotoGP® technology. YCC-T works in unison with the standard Traction Control System (TCS) to give the rider responsive throttle feel with the security of traction control for roads with less than ideal traction.
•Practicality Plus Performance
Touring amenities include a height-adjustable windshield, side fairing, adjustable riding position, 12V electrical outlet and a generous 4.8 gallon fuel tank. The FJ-09™ is ideal for the daily commute, short fun rides, or weekend getaways.
•Powerful, Controllable Brakes
Modern radial-mount four-piston front calipers squeeze 298mm rotors for exceptional stopping ability, while the anti-lock brake system (ABS) works to help prevent wheel lock during hard deceleration.
•Top Shelf Features
A modern and stylish LED headlight offers superior visibility and complements the FJ-09’s design. Multi-function dot matrix LCD instrument panel is designed to visually relay data to the rider quickly and clearly, including fuel consumption info and gear position.
•Ready to Travel
Slim-design hard bags, a Genuine Yamaha Accessory, provide storage convenience, as does an accessory top case.

Stunning 3-cylinder Engine
847cc liquid-cooled, in-line 3-cylinder, DOHC, 12-valve engine with fuel injection. This engine combines advanced high tech components including YCC-T and Yamaha D-Mode with a crossplane crankshaft concept to deliver an exciting, torquey and quick-revving engine character.
•Crossplane Crankshaft
This FJ-09 engine features Yamaha’s “Crossplane Crankshaft Concept” that provides linear torque development in response to the rider’s throttle input.
•Ride-by-Wire Throttle
The ride-by-wire Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) system senses the slightest throttle input by the rider, relays the data to the ECU which sends commands to a servo-motor actuator controlling the intake airflow volume.
•Selectable Engine Character
The FJ-09 is equipped with Yamaha D-MODE (or “Drive Mode”) variable throttle control system. The rider can choose at will from three throttle valve control maps (Standard Mode, “A” Mode, and “B” Mode) for different performance characteristics.
•Traction Control
Traction Control System (TCS) reduces rear wheel slip on wet surfaces or unpaved roads. The system detects rear wheel spin and reacts through combined control of the ignition timing, fuel injection volume and throttle opening (YCC-T).



Plush, Controlled Suspension.
For excellent damping characteristics, the front suspension is an inverted fork with 41mm inner tubes with 5.4 inches of travel. The front suspension features adjustment for spring preload and rebound damping.
•Compact, Horizontal Monoshock
The rear suspension features a linked-type Monocross® shock. The shock is positioned below the seat and features an almost horizontal alignment. This unique positioning contributes to mass centralization and a slimmer body design. The rear suspension is also adjustable for spring preload and rebound damping.
•Powerful, Controllable Brakes
Front brakes consist of two floating 298mm discs with 4-piston calipers. The calipers are radial mounted for improved feel just like Yamaha’s race-winning supersport machines. The standard anti-lock brake system (ABS) works to help prevent wheel lock during hard deceleration for additional braking security.
•Extended Range
Large 4.8 gallon fuel tank with 44 miles per gallon means less frequent stops for fuel when on the open road.
•Strong, Lightweight Frame
Lightweight Controlled-Fill die cast aluminum frame and swingarm is used to reduce weight.
•Adjustable Ergonomics
The aluminum tapered handlebar is adjustable up to 10mm to accommodate different rider preferences, while the rider’s seat can be easily adjusted 0.6 inches up or down for additional legroom. An accessory low saddle is available, dropping the seat height by 1.25 inches, and the rear suspension height adjuster accessory brings the seat down an additional 9/16”.



Complete Instrumentation
Multi-function digital instrument panel features speedometer, tachometer, fuel level and consumption, clock, gear indicator, eco indicator, D-MODE and TCS indicators.
•Adjustable Windscreen
The windscreen is height-adjustable to three positions at 15mm increments without the use of tools.
•Standard Centerstand
A centerstand is standard on the FJ-09 for added rider convenience when parking or doing maintenance.
•Power Port
A 12V electric outlet comes standard as an additional convenience, mounted adjacent to the instrument panel, and a second port can be added with Genuine Yamaha Accessories.
