NEW Yamaha FJR1300


Yamaha have upgraded their flagship sports tourer to make it an even more outstanding way to see the world. It still has the comfort of a sports tourer but is now rocking the looks of a sports bike, including lot’s of extra stuff, like a new 6-speed transmission, assist and slipper clutch, front and rear Led Headlights, Fully adjustable screen, cowl, seat and handlebars, yamaha D-MODE, cruise control, traction control, 25ltr Tank, electronic adjustable suspension, upside-down forks, heated grips and 12v socket, these are just some of the features. The new FJR looks super cool in black, not to sure about the silver version. It also looks nice without the side luggage, which is a good thing, as the entry level model doesn’t come with them.

FJR1300A Entry level £13,299

FJR1300AE adjustable suspension £14,799

FJR1300AS automatic £15,499

If your looking for no-frills power and like the old styling of bikes of yesteryear, then the Yamaha XJR1300 and Honda CB1300 bikes will be worth considering. They might not be the best for touring, or the fastest for racing, but they are top choice for the street bike enthusiast, and they are both pretty similar.

The Yamaha XJR1300 has 1251cc engine producing 105hp on to a top speed of 139mph. cost £7,999

The Honda CB 1300S has 1284cc engine producing 114hp on to a top speed of 136mph. cost £11,000

In most reviews the difference is whether you prefer Yamaha or Honda.
