Exclusive Ultimate Edition model
With the ability to cover huge distances at speed, the FJR1300 opened up a whole new world for riders who wanted tourer capabilities with sports performance. Featuring a most impressive specification, the new FJR1300AE Ultimate Edition represents the finest tribute to one of the best-loved Sport Tourers.
Premium specification and black/gold finish
To mark 20 years at the top of Yamaha’s Sport Touring line, the company has created this special high specification model. Its premium black/gold finish pays tribute to its iconic status, and the exclusive features includes a black seat with gold stitching and FJR logo, as well as a high screen, wind deflectors and gold wheels.
Electronically-adjustable suspension and USD forks
The FJR1300AE Ultimate Edition is equipped with high-performance upside-down front forks which form an integral part of the sophisticated electronically-adjustable suspension package. Together with the rear shock, the advanced forks can be electronically adjusted to suit different loads and riding conditions, allowing you to fine tune the system in seconds.
1,298cc inline 4-cylinder engine with YCC-T
Featuring a Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) for smooth power delivery, the advanced 1,298cc inline 4-cylinder 16-valve powerplant delivers outstanding sports performance. Its high torque output makes for strong acceleration in all gears – and the impressive top-end enables you to cover massive distances without trying too hard.
Fully adjustable ergonomics for added comfort
For maximum riding pleasure the FJR1300AE Ultimate Edition is designed to allow you to make easy adjustments to the riding position and aerodynamics. The seat height and handlebar position can be fine-tuned to suit different riding styles – and for effective wind protection there's an electrically-adjustable screen and an air management system.
All round LED lights with cornering lights
Twin-eye headlights are equipped with four compact and powerful LED lighting units – while the LED position lights and LED taillight assembly underline the FJR's high-tech specification. Featuring adaptive cornering lights that illuminate as the bike banks over, the FJR1300AE Ultimate Edition is one of the most sophisticated bikes in its class.
Advanced electronic control systems
The FJR1300AE Ultimate Edition benefits from the use of many convenient electronic control systems, including traction control (TCS) and cruise control that is a real bonus on long-haul rides. You can use Yamaha's D-Mode system to adjust the engine performance to suit relaxed or sports riding – and the bike’s exclusive electronically-adjustable suspension makes for quick and easy chassis tuning.
To complement its comprehensive sport tourer specification, the FJR1300AE Ultimate Edition is equipped with a 3-part instrument panel. This console features an R1-type analogue tachometer on the left with a central digital LCD speedometer and a multi-function dot matrix display on the right.
As well as its 25-litre fuel tank and a clean and quiet-running shaft drive system, the FJR1300AE Ultimate Edition is also equipped with hard sidecases with a black chrome stripe – and comes with heated grips and a 12v socket as standard equipment. All items aimed at making this supremely capable motorcycle the ultimate sports touring machine.
