Yamaha FJR 1300AE

Though not much of a Touring fan, more of a sport-bike guy, got to admit this bike offers an out-of- the-ordinary experience. I guess it’d be to state that this suffers of multiple personalities, but you ride it on narrow, winding or the wide open freeway the is one to cherish.

Being a sportbiker, really came as a surprise is how everything went, especially and I insist enough on this, as by far the best feature on the bike in my opinion the shifting. Yamaha’s (Yamaha Chip Controlled is a wonderful piece of engineering a six year old could learn to

There is no clutch lever on the handle, the rider only has to it, and the shifting is taken care of by a button mechanism located on the of the grip. The upshift button is one would expect the high-beam to be, the downshift button is right the horn I honked that a few instead of shifting down is kind of weird, but riders ways of overcoming such moments ( by positioning and keeping over the two buttons, which are the two ends of the same lever out of the control housing.).

As I said it did give me a few awkward moments I got used to it, but I honestly believe a step forward from foot-shifters. I was told though ever took the bike for me to see that both the shifting and the were handled by a state-of-the-art system that operated in a close correlation, thus possible the virtually unnoticeable transitions I experienced.

The electronics also controls the according to throttle and the type of the bike is riding on (steep or downhill sweepers) In a word it is one of things that most riders would dismiss as a gadget, or they might say the complicated something gets, the the chances for it to break down, any unbiased person has to admit it is an and then again, who are we to stand in the way of I for one truly enjoyed this new me that is) experience.

Another such feature of the FJR is the heated grips. Now it wouldn’t be a if it were kept that would it? The grips heating can be set to or Low but this is only a generic as it continuously adjusts itself to the speed of the bike. Whenever the goes faster the grips up whenever you slow down cool off accordingly. Theoretically a balanced High-Low setting it can much keep the rider’s at a constant temperature.

Getting to the powerplant: it’s all one would it to be. The 141 HPs can cope elegantly with a twisting mountain road with steep inclines, or a straight highway can throw at it. the engine: there’s been an modification made on the engine outlets and radiators. The old FJR seemed to a whole lot of the engine heat into the riders face.

The modifications came to correct problem. The brakes also do a job of making you feel safe. ABS it also has a nice little to make the bike more during braking.

When the brake is applied one piston on the front caliper is also

As a sportbike rider I can hardly say I was thrilled by the looks of the FJR, I do have to admit it has something of a appearance in a discrete noble of way. I understand the chassis has been subject to a few modifications to improve air flow and solve the problems the old FJR supposedly had. The mirrors and hard saddlebags are a bit of a from a design point of however I was told the bags hold full-face helmet and a bunch of other stuff, and can come in quite handy now and then.

Another little detail I ( being a rather tall myself) was that the seat being comfortable could be with a 20 mm range, to suit of different heights better. could also be adjusted. All in all despite the fact that the is nowhere as nimble as a sportbike it is a remarkable motorcycle, the awesome and the extras it offers make it a presence in its class.
