YAMAHA UNVEILS ITS 2013 MOTORCYCLE LINE-UP

Yamaha’s motorcycle line-up is reinforced for 2013 with the introduction of a number of uprated models. Both the FJR1300A and the FJR1300AS sport tourers benefit from significant engine and chassis changes to offer an even more rewarding riding experience. In the important 600cc category the XJ6 models feature a number of detail changes, and an additional special version is added to the line-up.

Both the Fazer8 and FZ8 Naked have undergone suspension and exhaust upgrades – and in addition to the standard colours, all of the FZ8 and XJ6 models will also be available in Yamaha’s dynamic new Race Blu livery for 2013.

Sharper style. More control. Improved functionality.
This is the machine that can justifiably claim to have been responsible for the growth and development of the true sport tourer category in the past decade. By offering class-leading engine and chassis performance combined with high levels of comfort and genuine long-distance capability, the FJR1300A and the FJR1300AS have built up a strong and committed following amongst Europe’s serious motorcyclists.

For 2013 Yamaha announce the new-generation FJR1300A/AS models which are designed to give today’s sport touring riders a sharper style, higher levels of engine and chassis control, and significantly improved functionality with enhanced riding pleasure.

Featuring fresh and aggressive new bodywork, as well as an uprated engine benefiting from the Yamaha’s latest electronic control technology, and a refined sports chassis, the latest FJR1300A brings higher levels of quality, performance and satisfaction to the discerning customer.

And for those sport tourer riders who demand two-wheeled technical excellence, the latest FJR1300AS is equipped with similar features seen on the FJR1300A. In addition to this, the 2013 FJR1300AS also benefits from a refined YCC-S clutchless gearchange system, and – for the first time on any Yamaha production model – a new electronic suspension adjustment mechanism.
