Yamaha XJR1300 series model history timelines

The XJR 1300 is the successor of the XJR 1200 that originated in 1995. The 1200 was famous for its strong ‘big block’ character with already massive power, available at very low revs. In addition to its sports appeal, reminiscent of the superbikes of the ’80s, this big bike was very easy to ride and the ample seat space and comfortable suspensions offered a relaxed ride.
