Updated Yamaha FJR1300

For the 2013 model year Yamaha undertook some pretty major revisions of their flagship sport-touring motorcycle, the FJR1300. For 2014 Yamaha ups the ante another notch by offering a variant of the FJR with electronically adjustable suspension.

The new electronically controlled suspension offers a variety of different settings to suit different riders and riding conditions

  • Preload options
    • One Up
    • One Up with Luggage
    • Two Up
    • Two Up with Luggage
  • Damping options
    • Soft
    • Standard
    • Hard



In order to incorporate the new electronic suspension, upside-down forks have been adopted which have independent left and right adjustments. The right side fork controls rebound damping, the the left side compression damping. Adjustments are made via a handlebar switch.

The FJR1300ES also incorporates a host of other features that are popular with the sport-touring crowd

  • Drive-Mode power adjustment
  • Cruise control
  • Traction Control
  • Electronically adjustable windscreen
  • Heated grips
  • Slim profile saddlebags
  • 12-volt power outlet

We expect to see our first FJR1300ES on the showroom in November. It’s gonna look good in the new candy red color for 2014.
