Yamaha FJR 1300 A Wallpaper

Since arriving on the US market in 2002 as a 2003 version, the Yamaha FJR1300A remained relatively unchanged except for a few technology upgrades such as ABS and an optional semi-automatic transmission.

But with much competition arriving from other manufacturers in the sport-touring market, Yamaha has upgraded its FJR1300A. The 2013 model features electronic and suspension/chassis upgrades, along with some new styling.

The 2013 FJR arrives with the 1298cc liquid-cooled inline four that received many upgrades, including Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T), Traction Control (TCS) and D-Mode (Sport and Touring).

Besides the electronics, Yamaha has upgraded the FJR1300A’s chassis and suspension for additional rider comfort. The upgrades include new fork and swingarm designs, along with bodywork that features an air-management system to control cooling/heating based on temperatures.

The bodywork has also been restyled for a more modern look, including the upper cowl, side panels and a new LED front-turn signal/position lights. Not stopping there, Yamaha redesigned the instrumentation, offering a three-part reading panel.
