2013 Yamaha FJR1300 leaked

Yamaha's revised FJR1300 tourer was accidentally leaked for a brief period yesterday. The bike doesn't show any major changes but it can be seen to have new side fairings, a slightly revised subframe and more up-to-date clocks, but the frame appears identical as does the engine and the rest of the major components. There is a rumour the FJR1300 will get traction...

Disappointing!

I've had my FJR for 4 years now & I have to say that apart from the wiring loom in the fairing earthing badly, having an earth loom installed & replacing the ABS covers on the wheels it's been a good bike. All of the problems I've had Yamaha have dealt with free of charge even though the bike was out of warranty for the wiring problems. I've ridden lots of different bikes (Including the BMW K1600 & Honda's ST1300) & nothing does what my Yamaha does anywhere near as well. I admit the bike is modded with a higher screen, Bos pipes, Power Commander, K & N filter, Garmin Zumo 660 & the best mod of all grip puppies. Having said that I wish that Yamaha would update the bike properly by losing some weight, increasing the horsepower & torque, also would offering Bluetooth GPS, radio, Ipod connectivity hurt. I mean this bike should be up to date, not back in the 90's like the old bike.

New FJR1300

I have a FJR and love it, its a bike for all seasons and all rides. Its got long legs for long distances and plenty of grunt for eating up the motorways and blowing some other sports bikes off the road. The only grumble I have is that it needs a gearbox upgrade to 6 speed, the engine can pull the extra gear. It also needs better access to the radiator instead of having to take half the fairings off to top the rad header tank up. A gel seat would also help. If it could loose a few pounds would help as it is a heavy bike especially at crawling speed or tight manouvering. Would I buy another FJR, you bet it ticks all the boxes for me.

Coulda done better

I agree w Roadtrecker.. my 07 has had a custom seat -why is the ergo one $500 AUD extra - PC, K&N and aftermarket suspension.. Looks like they addressed the suspension need for more adjustment to reduce wallowing etc, but it really really needed 1) sixth gear, 2) better seating as well. I'll be looking at the new Triumph Tropny or the Honda VFR 1200 next time. Pity.
