The Yamaha XJR 1300 is an imposing motorcycle that demands respect. Its old school design was carefully forged to suit perfectly to the unstoppable character of the motorcycle and every part of the bike inspires power. We especially like the big, headlight and the muscular fuel tank which work perfectly with the fat tires and the spacious seat.
The motorcycle is powered by an air-cooled 1,251cc engine with four valves per cylinder and fuel injection. The engine is linked to a constant mesh transmission and delivers a maximum output of 71.9 kW (98PS) at 8,000 rpm and 108.4 Nm (11.1 kg-m) at 6,000 rpm.
Other features that are worthy of being noted include the 43 mm front forks, three-spoke alloys, tubular steel frame and the massive monobloc 4-piston front brake calipers with floating discs.
The motorcycle is offered with a starting price of £ 7.999.

Yamaha’s notorious FJR1300 models make for perfect long haul companions as they meet not only the normal requirements of the sport-touring class, but set new standards with advanced development and anticipation. Comfortable, despite the sporty riding position and very fast even though they weigh third times more than your average commuting bike, the A and AE models can’t stay in the garage for long.
