2016 Yamaha FJR1300ES

As the flagship of the Yamaha touring line, the new FJR1300ES features electronically adjustable suspension (though not active suspension) that has three spring preload settings and three damping settings, along with seven fine tuning adjustments for the damping.

ABS and linked braking add to safety, as do the new lean-angle sensitive LED headlights, which look into a turn. Like the standard FJR1300A, the 2016 FJR 1300 ES gets a new six-speed transmission and a new clutch (lighter pull, plus slipper action).

Traction control, cruise control, and two power modes make this an effective touring motorcycle that still has a focus on sport.
