2013 Yamaha FJR

Looks like the Yamaha FJR will be redesigned for 2013. Just in time to give Triumph and BMW some much needed competition.

I so can't wait for next week! I think 2013 is going to be a great year for motorcycling.

Too bad the article is written in Foreign Gibberish.

What about the things that you can't see, i.e. the things that matter.

Engine upgraded maybe? Suspension improved? Frame looks the same, but have they adjusted the steering geometry?

Really the bike looks great, and function is top notch in my opinion, any changes I'd want on it wouldn't be easily visible. Just riding my dad's 07- I'd mostly desire quicker turning, which is why I went with the Sprint GT instead.

No. Straight from Akra, with dyno charts to go with it.

We`ll see & i don`t think Yamaha would pull a Honda Gold wing & just change the outer skin.

Hopefully soon , as the 2013 FJR hasn`t been added to the web site YET!!! It`s funny that spy photo`s never show the front , R1 headlights would look cool on that bike. Photo kind of looks like when people were hoping for a change in 2006.

Why would an exhust company need to make new pipes and dyno them for a bike that hasn't changed in years? I smell engine changes....
