I'm sure the FJR1400 will have more power (just because it has to) and some more electronics, etc., but I hope Yamaha doesn't screw up the basic concept of a bike that handles, has plenty of power, gets decent mileage, long service intervals and is comfortable and fun to ride.
Didn't the FJR win that iron butt thangy? And still hold the record from Prudhoe bay ta Key West? The bike's get'in mor popular amongst serious riderz, why change it? This silly rumor circulates every year. They should just lower the price on the thang and it'll sell like hot cakes.
