2016 Yamaha FJ-09

Powered by the spunky triple used in the FZ-09, the 2016 Yamaha FJ-09 is the aggressive little brother of Yamaha’s venerable FJR1300A sport-tourer with a touch of adventure feel.

Thanks to a steep rake, short wheelbase, and light weight, the FJ-09 can turn any tour into an exciting ride (hard bags are optional). Along with ride-by-wire, the FJ-09 has traction control and two power modes to adapt to most touring situations. Riders can customize the ride thanks to a seat that can be raised a half-inch over the standard position.
