    I can't wait to hear of all the updates for the FJR or any bike for 2013 really.

    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 :evil & 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 :puke1 , 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....

    Well ...


    Nos confrères de Oliepeil.nl ont décidément un oeil de faucon ! Le site néerlandais a en effet découvert, en parcourant le catalogue Akrapovic 2013, ce qui devait être l'une des invitées surprise du prochain salon Intermot 2012 : la nouvelle Yamaha FJR1300 2013 (ou 1400) ! Les vues arrière de la grosse nouveauté GT japonaise dévoilent un carénage modifié - qui augure donc une toute nouvelle face avant -, une boucle arrière de cadre renforcée, un pare-brise plus généreux et un poste de pilotage redessiné. Un peu court pour une nouveauté 2013 aussi attendue nous direz-vous ? Si la base technique reprise de la Yamaha FJR 1300 actuelle pour sa remplaçante 2013 n'éveille pas l'excitation, certes, on peut d'ores et déjà prédire, comme c'est le cas sur les premières grosses nouveautés moto 2013 détaillées sur moto-station.com - un package électronique sans doute très optimisé. Outre un équipement d'agrément conforme au standard de la catégorie - GPS, régulateur de vitesse, ordinateur de bord, poignées et selles chauffantes ? -, il semble logique que la nouvelle Yamaha FJR1300 2013 accueille à son tour les toutes dernières assistances électroniques à la mode : traction control, réglage électronique des suspensions, différentes cartographies moteur, freinage couplé / ABS, voire une évolution significative de la transmission automatique déjà connue sur la FJR 1300 AS et sans doute présente sur la future Pan European Honda 2013... Bref, si rien n'est encore confirmé, il apparaît plus que probable qu'une grande partie des équipements mentionnés ici figurent bien sur cette nouvelle Yamaha FJR 1300 2013. Mais avant de nous prononcer, attendons d'être au salon de la moto et du scooter Intermot 2012 à Cologne, la semaine prochaine, pour découvrir ce que nous réserve la fiche technique de cette nouvelle Yamaha FJR1300 2013...

    Translation: "You can't afford it."

    I may be wrong but somehow I think if Yamaha is going to add all these features/changes as discussed above, I am sure they would have given a new design to the already dated tail lamp cluster & rear-end. I would imagine a split tail light with bold LED more on the lines of the FZ1 or the S10 etc...
