The 48mm front fork is fully adjustable to suit the rider’s preferences and road conditions. The shock absorber has preload and rebounds damping adjustment functions. Ergonomic shape, large-capacity 6.6-gallon fuel tank, with excellent comfort, wide cruising range, and made of steel, can use a magnetic fuel tank bag.
Advanced front and rear brakes provide excellent braking force and control capabilities and are linked through Yamaha’s unified braking system to achieve a balanced braking force. ABS further enhance the rider’s confidence by preventing the wheels from locking up when the traction is reduced. Similar to Yamaha’s super sports machine, the FJR1300A has a sturdy aluminum frame that can achieve an ideal balance between chassis rigidity and feedback. The long swing arm can enhance traction and improve the rear suspension movement.
The instrument panel consists of three parts, which can provide the rider with all the information needed during the journey, including the driving recorder function, riding mode, and so on. Passengers can also easily customize the dot-matrix multi-function display to display the required information by tapping the bar-mounted switching device.
