For 2014, the Yamaha FJR1300ES gets electronically adjustable suspension to add to its already impressive suite of electronics – ride-by-wire, multi-map D-mode, cruise control, traction control, linked brakes with ABS, and electrically adjustable windscreen. There’s also height adjustable rider seat and adjustable handlebars, which should mean a perfect riding position for riders of all sizes.
The new electronically adjustable suspension has four settings for preload and three levels of damping adjustment for each preload setting. And the bike’s powerful 1298cc engine and 6.6-gallon fuel tank make it eminently suitable for long-distance touring. Available from November this year, the 2014 Yamaha FJR1300 is priced at US$16,890.
