The pinnacle of supersport touring.
Description
When we broke the news that an updated Yamaha FJR1300 was on the way for 2013 in the December 2012 issue, the reader reaction was the usual mix of praise and grousing (mostly that the bike hasn’t been changed enough). What surprised us, though, is that almost everyone who wrote qualified their opinions with the hundreds of thousands of miles they had put on a series of FJR1300s since its introduction for 2003. That kind of mileage and loyalty suggest that the bike has been a satisfying performer at its main job, and that changes to its basic platform are unnecessary. The FJR’s power, comfort and handling are all enhanced for 2013. To that end, the 2013 FJR1300’s stout twin-spar aluminum chassis is the same, and its powerful liquid-cooled, 1,298cc in-line four has only been refined for lower frictional losses, smoother shifting and slightly more power. New piston rings, coated sleeveless cylinders, throttle bodies, ignition and a less restrictive exhaust contribute to a claimed 3 horsepower and 3 lb-ft of torque increase, which was borne out on the Jett Tuning dyno when our 2013 FJR made 129.7 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 91.2 lb-ft at 7,100 at the rear wheel. Most importantly, more than 75 lb-ft are on tap from 3,500 rpm to redline at 9,000. Two Drive modes are available now—Sport, for quicker throttle response, and Touring, for a more leisurely feel. Both output 100 percent of the bike’s power—only the delivery is different. In Sport, the engine definitely feels peppier ridden back-to-back with a 2012 model…if an engine that already pulls like a bullet train can be described as peppier.
