By offering class-leading engine and chassis performance combined with high levels of comfort and genuine long-distance capability, the FJR1300A has built up a committed following among motorcyclists.
The new-generation FJR1300A model is designed to give today's sport touring riders a sharper style, higher levels of engine and chassis control, and significantly improved functionality with enhanced riding pleasure.
Featuring fresh and aggressive new bodywork, as well as an uprated engine benefiting from the Yamaha’s latest electronic control technology, and a refined sports chassis, the latest FJR1300A brings higher levels of quality, performance and satisfaction to the discerning customer.
Featuring a Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) for smooth power delivery, the advanced inline 4-cylinder powerplant delivers outstanding sports performance. Its high torque output makes for strong acceleration in all 6 gears - and the impressive top end enables you to cover massive distances without trying too hard.
Twin-eye headlights are equipped with four compact and powerful LED lighting units - while the LED position lights and LED taillight assembly underline the FJR's high-tech specification. And with its front adaptive cornering lights that illuminate as the bike banks over, the FJR1300A is one of the most capable bikes in its class.
Yamaha D-MODE offers the rider a choice of two running modes, identified as 'T' mode and 'S' mode, which are operated by a push switch on the right handlebar. The system changes the character of the engine performance by adjusting the throttle valve in the Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T).
The FJR1300A benefits from a new easy-to-operate cruise control system, which has been designed to make long-distance touring more relaxing and enjoyable. The system functions in 3rd, 4th and 5th gears between 50 km/h and 180 km/h, and is operated by two switches located on the left handlebar assembly.
Assist and Slipper Clutch
The FJR1300A is equipped with a 6-speed transmission that enables the rider to make optimal use of the massive reserves of torque for rapid acceleration - while the high 6th gear gives lower rpm at high cruising speeds. And for smoother downshifting and enjoyable cornering, a standard Assist and Slipper (AS) clutch is fitted.
Traction Control System
This electronic system uses sensors to detect any rear wheel spin, and as soon as the rear tyre loses traction the TCS instantaneously adjusts the bike's ignition timing, as well as the fuel injection volume and throttle opening to momentarily cut drive, and ensure that traction is maintained.
