Yamaha’s Supersport Tourer

Probably the biggest change in that update was in the transmission, giving it a smoother ride, as well as a sixth gear, and the addition of a slipper clutch to reduce hand fatigue at the clutch lever. Both of these tourers run a 1,298cc liquid-cooled four-banger and come on a sportbike frame for a bit more thrill than just a tourbike.

2010 Yamaha FJR1300A

2010 Yamaha FJR1300A

It might seem that the 2010 Honda VFR1200F has come to reinvent the supersport touring segment, but manufacturers such as Yamaha have their own classic approach towards offering a motorcycle that is fast, comfortable and built to last, the 2010 FJR1300A.

Yamaha biker dilemma: FJR1300 vs FZ1 vs XV1600 = human clones

This is a very funny video for Yamaha directed by Mark Toia. It shows a fan of the Japanese brand having troubles deciding himself between three different models, the FJR1300, FZ1 and XV1600 and the guy eventually has himself cloned for the sake of riding the three bikes at the same time. Hmm, I guess I never thought at it that way.
