2014 Yamaha FJR1300ES

New for 2014:

2014 Yamaha FJR1300ES on Totalmotorcycle.com

Supersport touring perfected –The new FJR1300ES offers all the same sporty luxury of the standard FJR but with the addition of electrically adjustable suspension...

Nothing but the Best.

The 2014 Yamaha FJR1300ES features advanced ABS, electronic adjustable windscreen, heated grips and now offers electronically adjustable suspension so you can dial in your ride with a simple push of a button. The 2014 FJR also features D-mode (Drive-Mode) for varying throttle mappings that provide exceptional versatility. This works in conjunction with TCC-T (Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle) and the intake/exhaust system, generating engine character that can be sportier or more relaxed dependingo nthe riding situation.


2014 Yamaha FJR1300ES Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

•The FJR1300ES features an all-new electronically adjustable suspension to take the bother out of adjusting the suspensions to fit different riding conditions and bring greater convenience to touring.
•The new 2014 FJR1300ES offers the same aggressive styling features, including the headlight cowl and side fairing as the FJR1300A. The flexible side panels are not only great looking, they also adjust to help improve comfort and aid in weather protection.
•FJR1300ES riders can select D-mode (Drive-mode) for varying mappings, giving the motorcycle exceptional versatility. This works in conjunction with YCC-T® (Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle) generating engine character that can be sportier or more relaxed depending on the riding situations.
•Traction control developed from MotoGP® technology is standard on the FJR1300ES. While engaged, the system detects wheel spin and adjusts ignition timing, fuel injection volume, and throttle valve opening to help maintain traction, unlike some competitors who’s system only cuts ignition creating a hard cut-out feeling. The system is designed to let the operator ride on roads that have limited traction with more confidence.
•Another popular feature standard on the FJR1300ES is cruise control. Riders can set cruising speed with the push of a button on the left handlebar to provide comfort and ease on extended road trips.
•A three-part instrument panel provides riders with all the information they need while enjoying the road. Riders can easily customize the display to show the information they want.
•The front brake lever activates six of the eight front braking pistons; the rear brake pedal activates two rear pistons and the other two front pistons — provides balanced anti-lock braking in all conditions.
•A pushbutton-adjustable windscreen and a thick comfy seat for two are perfect for comfortable, long-distance riding and come standard on the FJR1300ES.
•Additional features on the 2014 FJR1300ES include a two-position adjustable rider seat, low for shorter riders or nearly 1-inch higher for a more spacious feel for taller riders, plus handlebars that can be adjusted to one of three different positions. The result is a superb, custom-fit ride.

Better late than never - I was supposed to move this in the forum while the boss was away on Friday....

My thoughts - I love the update. It finally looks better after the update last year and now it has electronically adjustable suspension. I understand most of the top Iron Butt finishers this year rode FJRs which also speaks volumes about the practicality of the bike.

Awesome for me.

It got an awesome from me...I've always liked the FJR, but now with the updates last year I'd love to have one...top of the list for me. That would make two Yamaha's in the garage (if I had a garage). Just not sure if I want a sporty tourer, an adventure tourer, a luxo barge (Goldwing), or a bagger...depends on the new woman in my life...two wheels is my only real need, the rest is up to her (has to be comfy and weather protection)

Later.

Going after the R1200RT market, I see Yamaha is. I guess this is a cool thing..... problem is, I've never felt the need for electrically adjustable suspension. Once I get the suspension where I want it, I tend to leave it as is, not fiddle with it.

I voted awesome, I own a 2011 fjr and love it. It does everything well. The 2013 upgrade with somewhat new looks, traction control, new suspension makes it just that much better.

If I had the pennies, I would be hard pressed to decided between this bike and the Triumph Sprint GT/ST

IIRC, Sprints are a bit smaller/lighter, even the GT. A Concours 14 is pretty much the same size & weight as the FJR.

I've always liked the FJR, and voted it cool. It's getting a bit old though; going on 12 years, with basically evolutionary changes.

For some time the FJR has been considered a great value in the LD community, but this platform has also shown that it is a competitive choice by dominating the standings in the 2013 Iron Butt Rally with 5 top 10 finishers.

1. Derek Dickson 2005 FJR1300
2. Josh Montain 2006 FJR1300A
3. Wendy Crockett 2005 FJR1300
5. Matt Watkins 2005 FJR1300
6. Tim Pawlowski 2006 FJR1300A

It is interesting to note that none of these motorcycles are Gen 3 FJRs, but then a lot of LD riders will not switch rides unless they are having reliability issues or if they perceive a significant competitive advantage in doing so. Also, Matt Watkins had significant rear suspension problems and limped home to dramatically avoid a mechanic DNF. Any single year does not provide a large enough sample to make meaningful conclusions on the reliability of the various models, but this was a stealer year for FJR fans.

Time will tell is the 2014 FJR1300ES will be a battle worthy competitor, but there is little doubt that it will get a chance to compete.

Well that pretty well sums up my vote for the bike then as a tourer: Awesome.

If the FJR1300 is an Iron Butt Rally bike of choice for long distances in a short amount of time, I can only imagine it would make a great slower speed tourer as well. It is interesting that Yamaha still uses the inline-4, I would think a smoother (less high-frequency) motor might be more appreciated vs a high revving one, but obviously it works and works well.

When I picked this model for the Cool Wall I thought it might have finished with more a "meh" vote but the new FJR easily surpassed my expectations based on the votes so far.

Now can we convince Yamaha to bring over the naked XJR1300 from Europe? PLEASE :D

This is a gorgeous and functional large touring bike. I am sure the engine is a bit boring (big engines tend to have much less interest than smaller ones) but would be smooth and comfortable. I voted awesome!

It finally looks better after the update last year and now it has electronically adjustable suspension." it's hard not to like this bike! Way to go Yamaha.

Next bike is now up for voting on, have fun!!

Yesterday I had the opportunity to ride the FJR1300ES and I wasn't sure if I would have liked it before hand, but I have to say, the bike really impressed me! It doesn't feel as heavy as I would have imagined it to be and it quite well balanced at low and 1st gear speeds. The engine is very smooth (but not very loud and needs an aftermarket exhaust to sing) and the amount of electrical do-dads on it are pretty amazing. I'd hate to see any of those electrical thingys go on the blink but while it all works, it's awesome.

Might be a bike in my future, never know. :)

This guy's grandma was in vroomvroom the other day: now she's in the hospital.
2) Trying to get with someone of the opposite sex, for no other purposes then hook up with them.
