Controlled braking

Power is nothing without control and the XJR1300’s 298 mm dual disc front brake with monobloc four-piston calipers do just that - and the discs not only ensure you keep in charge at all times, but look great too.

Lightweight 3-spoke alloy wheels

Serious power demands strong traction and handling. The XJR1300’s 3-spoke alloy wheels minimise unsprung weight for sharp steering while the wide tyres provide excellent road-holding.

Big, beautiful powerplant

With a bike this powerful, you want to make an impact. The frame of the XJR1300 ensures that you do. The superbly balanced chassis accentuates the bike’s bulk and the double cradle tubular steel frame, reinforced with a box-section aluminium swingarm, gives even more muscularity.

Vocal EXUP exhaust
