Yamaha FJR1300AE...

What we say…

Out of the Three possible options for Yamaha's impeccable Super Tourer, this would be my bike - the FJR 1300AE.

Just in case you're confused, (and who wouldn't be!), here are the three variants. The FJR1300A - Manual gearbox with conventional suspension and forks. The FJR1300AE - Manual gear box with adjustable electronic suspension and Upside Down front forks. The FJR1300AS - Electronic clutch less gear change (thumb or foot change) with electronic suspension. Yup...I'd have the AE.

If you want the joy and control of changing gear when YOU want to change but fancy suspension that's adjustable on the move...then you want the AE too.

All FJR variants benefit from impeccable Yamaha build quality throughout PLUS - Colour matched side cases, heated grips, electric screen, D-Mode power selector, 12 volt socket, traction control, Cruise control, ABS brakes and super smooth, hassle free shaft drive all come as standard. Fast, comfortable and very accomplished., the FJR really is a lot of bike.

A quite superb mile eating machine, tailored to the rider. Maximum comfort for masses of miles. Solo or 2 up, the FJR will take it all in its stride, effortlessly. And it's a keeper... You see FJR's from time to time, years old with loads of Europe under their belts. And you know what?...They still look fantastic. That's the real value of build quality. Yamaha inject it from day one and you still get the benefit of it years later.


Electronically-adjustable suspension

FJR1300AE features Yamaha's electronically adjustable suspension system with inverted front forks. You can select ‘One-Up’, ‘One-Up with Luggage’, ‘Two-Up’ or ‘Two-Up with Luggage’ suspension settings. The system also offers a choice of ‘Soft’, ‘Standard’ or ‘Hard’ damping for each setting, giving a total of twelve suspension set-ups.


1,298cc inline 4-cylinder engine

With a Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle for smooth power delivery, this advanced power plant delivers outstanding sports performance and fuel efficiency, together with a high torque output and impressive top end that is able to cover huge distances with minimal effort.


6-speed transmission with A&S clutch

The latest FJR1300AE is now equipped with a 6-speed transmission that enables the rider to make optimal use of the massive reserves of torque for rapid acceleration - while the high 6th gear gives lower rpm at high cruising speeds. And for smoother downshifting and enjoyable cornering, a standard Assist and Slipper (A&S) clutch is fitted.


All round LED lights with cornering lights

Twin-eye headlights are equipped with four compact and powerful LED lighting units - while the LED position lights and LED taillight assembly underline the FJR's high-tech specification. And with its front adaptive cornering lights that illuminate as the bike banks over, the FJR1300AE is one of the most capable bikes in its class.


Advanced electronic control systems

The FJR1300AE benefits from the addition of many advanced electronic control systems, including traction control (TCS) and cruise control. Yamaha's D-mode system allows the rider to adjust engine performance to suit either relaxed or sports riding, while the electronically-adjustable suspension significantly improves the ride quality.


Sophisticated 3-part instrumentation

To complement its class-leading sport tourer specification, the FJR1300AE is equipped with the latest high-specification 3-part instrument panel. This high tech console features an R1-type analogue tachometer on the left with a central digital LCD speedometer and a multi-function dot matrix display on the right.

What Yamaha says…

With electronically-adjustable suspension and upside-down forks, the FJR1300AE offers a superior ride. Its new 6-speed transmission gives faster acceleration and more relaxed high speed cruising -
and the latest A&S clutch ensures smoother downshifting.

The advanced suspension system enables you to vary performance to suit both the road surface and load. A choice of four main settings and three damping settings mean you can be confident
that the FJR1300AE will deliver the best possible ride quality, whatever the conditions.

Featuring front and rear LED lights as well as banking angle sensitive cornering front lights, this dynamic sport tourer gets you there in record time.
