2016 Yamaha FJR1300A

The long-running Yamaha FJR1300A gets some serious upgrades for 2016. The biggest news is the all-new six-speed transmission, replacing the old five-speed.

Helically cut, the transmission will also be smoother and quieter. Along with the new tranny, there’s a new clutch that is stronger, but with lighter springs, and slipper action.

Traction control, cruise control, two power modes, plus adjustable seat, windshield and handlebars, make for an easier ride. Along with new LED lighting the bodywork has also be updated.
