Often overlooked in favour of the new breed of adventure-style sports tourers, the new FJR is a fabulous piece of kit – fast, refined and fun. Although hugely competent and thoroughly desirable, the new FJR isn’t that different to the older model. But there again, that’s no bad thing as the out going bike is also excellent. Overall the new FJR1300A is a superb piece of kit. It’s properly fast, handles well, is smooth, comfy and a joy to live with. It might be ‘old-generation’ compared to the latest, greatest adventure-style tourers, but it’s still a cracker.
