 The 2013 Yamaha FJR1300A remains a competent sports-tourer...

Yamaha have released specs and the first official pics of the 2013 FJR1300A sports-tourer. Revisions to the bike include redesigned upper and lower cowls for increased wind protection, an adjustable windscreen, a new electrically adjustable windscreen that faster to operate and which holds its position after the bike has been switched off, redesigned throttle bodies and a revised exhaust system and drive-mode selector that offers touring and sport modes.

The new FJR1300A also has a height-adjustable seat, revised, more easily adjustable cruise control system (which is automatically released when the rider uses the brakes, clutch or throttle), an easily adjustable headlight, improved control buttons and switches and a traction control system that optimizes grip on wet and/or unpaved roads.

The FJR1300A is still powered by a 1.3-litre, DOHC, 16-valve, liquid-cooled inline-four that’s tuned for torquey, linear power delivery and which is used as a fully stressed member of the chassis. At 290kg (wet weight), the Yamaha FJR is certainly no lightweight but an all-around competent sports-tourer is what it’s meant to be, and that’s what it is.
