Honda Pan European Vs Yamaha FJR 2013: GT on the road!

With two motorcycles, these are not only two of GT which clash, but straightforwardly two of piloting. Which of the sporting FJR or the Honda Pan European ST 1300 be essential on the wire kilometers? in our test

The Yamaha 1300 FJR and the 1300 Pan European were born at the same time (2001 for and 2002 for Honda), but only the FJR just known a cure of

This handing-over on level was since the FJR had almost not evolved its exit: it had been satisfied to ABS in 2003 ( to read our Assessment occasion 1300 FJR ) and to propose a version in 2006 ACE (without The FJR, quite born, happiness large wheelers and administrations, but Yamaha was to react a competition – German, in particular – hard!

The least which one can it is that Yamaha knew to the original spirit of its Yamaha FJR 2013. One needs even an eye to differentiate old grinding from the If its poop is perfectly identical, its evolves carefully with fires of day and indicators with

But the innovations hide rather its careen-age, with an engine which gain inter anti-skid and an adjustable cartography of on two modes (Touring or Sport). In the equipment proposed goes up of a with the appearance of a speed

On its side, the Honda Pan European ST is also voted by plebiscite by with its final transmission by joint and its distribution by chain. It today its quarter century of since it appeared in 1989 in a of 1100 CC.

It quickly becomes a technological window for Honda: in it is the first motorcycle to propose the one besides before-back coupled (and of the ABS inaugurated by BMW in 1988). It is in that the version 1300 DC today made its appearance… more or less of happiness!

New the Honda Pan European ST 1300 a little delicate launching, she suffered from chronic of the nose gear at high Moreover, if the famous anti-skid one on the previous model missed softness, Honda could have sought to improve it than to simply give up it and on its new “Side-Euro”. Especially how this one is at the time as one of the florets of the range its voluptuous V4!

The city, by default

In this exercise and in of her handicap of almost 40 kg, the “old Honda buries her Yamaha literally. There one finds the facility specific to the machines of the world manufacturer.

The Honda Pan shows an incredible ease for a motorcycle. All is combined to facilitate the to you: ultra flexible V4, a gear box and a soft and progressive Add to that a nose gear and neutral and you will quickly yourselves to thread you – almost! – a dispatch rider!

While down from the Side, one has the to pass to a muscle-development exercise going up on the FJR downtown. Its nose is shown much less at low speed and hardly encourages

One regrets also a handful of firm fluid clutch, claims one crowned comes up. the 4-cylinders online shows too much nasty piece of and brutal in Sport mode. One prefer the Touring mode to more resting because feeble…

This table can appear a hard for the Yamaha FJR 1300 and the owners who roll with downtown will certainly some. Nevertheless, it is noted the latter often withdraw the bags with the profit of a and are in general not small gauges…

As soon as one has a little space, one can benefit fully from the One raises a little the windshield, one the Sport mode, and ahead the

In loutish mode, the Yamaha FJR 2013 remains very to take along. One will not to hesitate to exaggerate its effort the steering into the skid, being helped firmly of the and the feet to balance it from one to another.

With a lower of gravity, the Honda Pan European ST is let take along with a ease. Its suspensions, privileging more which the handling, more to strolls than the …. And that falls because its engine is with the

V4, monster of approval and flexibility, is not to be martyr zed but offer all the same of the correct revivals and agrees to set out very low in the turns. This coherent engine-frame unit a very pleasant motorcycle for a use.

If, by chance, one lets exceed by the events, our two large GT to be the good freeness ones. One believe that Honda, the top of its ten years of age, would be but it of it is nothing. With its braking “Dual C-ABS” (coupling the front to the back and vice the Side slows down well, very extremely and

The Yamaha FJR can however be prided on and a more precise feeling of the brake. Their two ABS make job well: they are made and do not start with any end of field in of the delicate conditions of our test.

With immense windshield and their bags, both GT are particularly They fully assume big-engine car like their to travel to the long course. old one decade, the tended lines of the Pan European ST 1300 are not at all obsolete and very elegant.

The design improved of the Yamaha FJR 1300 is tormented a little more and more sporting than of its competitor.

Over the years, the defect of these motorcycles as “GT” became their in constant increase because of (on) equipment. If the FJR manages to under 290 kg all full facts, the flirts with 330 kg. They are intended to experienced motorcyclists and rather well, this be only for the operations cut engine.

at the time of these delicate Honda, perfectly balanced, not show itself really difficult to handle than in spite of its 40 additional kg.

But Honda some refinements like the regulation height of the windshield and of the headlights: practical not to dazzle when one rolls charged and in

Until its recent recasting, the FJR 1300 was not either a model of It will have been to wait this New Year to have of a speed regulator, a of cartographic of injection or a windshield do not return systematically in low position the contact is cut! An order the handlebar also makes its on the left control unit to the various information displayed by the of edge.

Their height of saddle relatively reasonable – and adjustable, in Honda appears most to the small gauges since its can vary from 775 mm to 805 mm. For Yamaha, legs will be needed – the so as its saddle is broader – since the can go from 805 to 825 mm.

Rigged out their bags able to contain our two GT prove quite practical but bulky. Integrated “in” the the bags of the Honda Pan European ST make only 82 cm broad. Of an capacity, the bags “added” on the FJR 1300 exceed a little with one width of 90 cm.

However, eight small centimeters of can change the life in the congestion! But on the hand, Yamaha is prettier Honda when their are withdrawn to them.

The saddle of the new FJR 1300 2013 does not it remains quite as angular and that in the past. But if this side does not appear accommodating first of all, it is a of comfort at the time of long

On the contrary, the saddle of the Honda Pan ST 1300 is as round as soft. If she to show herself also with the long course, one curse on the other hand his slipping side, as well on the of the pilot as of the passenger… Whatever trousers (leather, Jean or sanity), the coating of the saddle are a cake of soap!

Perhaps can one it by the fact that our motorcycle of was quasi new, and that phenomenon will tend to blurred with time? Let us

Yamaha FJR 1300 2013 and Pan European ST 1300 propose of the positions of control rather and obviously very comfortable. there are the legs relatively by the large 4-cylinders of 1,300 DC, but for the one is as well as possible.

The invitation the travel

General-purpose, Honda Pan ST 1300 and Yamaha FJR1300 must also be able to a use if not professional, at least serious. In respect, at the time of the long one regrets the absence of a sixth on the two motorcycles. Without inevitably about an overdrive, that make it possible to consume and to roll peacefully.

On the long stages, the Yamaha FJR 1300 seems posed on a rail. the speed regulator and good of the bubble, one is quickly tempted to with extremely prohibited speeds…

In spite of its comfort and its the Honda Pan European ST 1300 encourages with the speeding’s. 150 km/h, its nose gear under certain conditions, of not really dangerous… but not pleasant

This phenomenon is all the more as it appears in a random way: one pilot to another (its its catch with the wind, its of holding the handlebar…), at different with the gone up thoroughly or not… A true mystery!

So motorcycles invite you – or oblige – To have regular breaks of their reduced autonomy or of comfort Spartan, it is not the case our two GT.

Finally, FJR 1300 2013 and Honda Pan ST 1300 really do not enter in competition, so much they different services. According to the and their waiting, they be able to like or reject quickly…

The Yamaha FJR 1300 remains above all… a I.e. a motorcycle rigorous, powerful, equipped well but demanding. Less sporting and old, the Honda Pan European seems a more comfortable but of which the degree of equipment is wide.
