Bike of the day: Yamaha FJR1300

1 of 1

Adventure tourers looked like they’d all but taken over the market for a while, but sports-tourers like the Yamaha FJR1300 are a fantastic alternative if your trip will only ever take you on paved roads.


The FJR is more like a very comfortable sportsbike than a tourer in many ways. Its 146bhp means that it’s faster than it looks, and the handling is light and sporty (at speed). But thanks to the plush seat and comfortable riding position, you can take full advantage of the 200 mile tank range in comfort.

There’s plenty of room for a pillion and all the luggage space you’d expect from a bike in this category.

Not everyone who goes touring wants to leave the tarmac and if that’s the case you’d might as well go for a bike that’s more at home there. The Yamaha FJR1300 is a great option, all that’s left to do now is planning your route.

What the seller says

"Featuring a 25-litre fuel tank and aerodynamic fairing with electronically adjustable screen - as well as cruise control and adjustable riding position – this Yamaha FJR1300A gets you there like nothing else.
