The Perfect Pairing of Power, Performance and Pampering.
Once upon a time, attempts at melding super sport performance with long-distance luxury usually meant winding up with too much of one trapping - and too little of the other. Heavy doses of sportbike-like manners often dictated minimal long-haul comfort. And if the scales were tilted too much toward the touring side, well, you get the idea. But that was then... and this is now.
Enter the all-new FJR1300, and with it an all-new class of machine: the super sport tourer, where open-class sportbike power and chassis performance meets the luxurious comfort levels normally reserved for touring machines.
Powered by a new-design 1298cc, liquid-cooled in-line four with electronic fuel injection, the FJR's as smooth a runner as it is potent (to the tune of 145 horsepower!), thanks to dual balancers, a hydraulic clutch, scissor-type primary gears to reduce gear noise, and shaft final drive.
Handling, too, is a seamless blend of sportbike agility and plush, dawn-till-dusk comfort, courtesy of an all-new, extra-strong (but lightweight) cast aluminum frame and swingarm, fully adjustable 48mm forks and a rear shock with two-stage preload settings for solo and two-up riding.
Now... top it off with touring touches like an adjustable windshield, hard saddlebags, super-comfortable dual seat and large-capacity fuel tank.
The all-new FJR1300. Welcome to the world of super sport touring.
