2022 Yamaha FJR1300ES Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits


  • Six-Speed Transmission
    The FJR1300ES features a compact six-speed transmission, with ratios providing evenly spaced gearing for sporty riding, including a tall 6th gear for relaxed highway riding. Additionally, the transmission gears are helically cut for smooth, quiet running, with separated gear dogs for excellent transmission performance.
  • Assist & Slipper Clutch
    The FJR1300ES features an Assist and Slipper clutch unit that provides additional clutch plate clamping force under engine torque, as well as reduced force under back-torque from the rear wheel. This allows for the use of lighter clutch springs – reducing clutch lever effort by approximately 20% – as well as smoother, more refined downshifting.
  • Effortless, Big-Bore Thrust
    The FJR1300ES features a compact 1298cc, DOHC, 16-valve, liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder engine that delivers superb power and torque, for an unequaled spread of muscle over a wide rpm range. The engine is always ready to respond with strong passing power, even with a passenger and full load of luggage aboard.
  • Advanced Engine Design
    The slant-block motor design uses stacked, tri-axis gearbox shafts to minimize engine size while optimizing chassis geometry for balanced weight distribution and great handling. Inside, lightweight forged pistons with carburized connecting rods provide superb strength and reduced reciprocating mass for outstanding durability and performance.
  • Traction Control
    The FJR1300ES’s Traction Control System detects tire slip and adjusts ignition timing, fuel injection volume, and throttle valve opening to help prevent uncontrolled wheelspin. The system is designed to let the operator ride on roads that have limited traction with greater confidence.
  • Cruise Control
    Cruise control makes touring a breeze, adjusting a set speed via a single push to the switch or, for larger adjustments, by continuously pushing the switch. A resume function returns the cruise control to the most recent setting, while activating the brakes, clutch or throttle return releases the cruise control.
  • Advanced Ride-by-Wire Fuel Injection
    The FJR1300ES makes use of Yamaha’s Chip Controlled Throttle (YCCT), a ride-by-wire system that provides crisp, seamless throttle response in a variety of altitude and weather conditions—ideally matched to the refined and sporty nature of the FJR.
  • Adjustable D-Mode Throttle
    Thanks to the flexibility provided by YCC-T, the FJR1300ES gives riders a choice of two throttle response modes to best suit preferences and riding conditions. T-Mode provides a smooth throttle response which is ideal for touring while the S-Mode maximizes performance response for a sportier, more aggressive character.
  • Compact & Efficient Shaft Drive
    The FJR1300ES features a clean, quiet running and extremely durable shaft drive to the rear wheel. Built to handle the big mileage numbers touring riders rack up, the shaft drive system require minimal maintenance and lets the rider focus on the journey.
  • High Efficiency Dual Exhaust
    The four-into-one-into-two stainless-steel exhaust optimizes engine performance across the powerband, with a clean-running catalyst for reduced emissions.



  • Lean Angle-Sensitive LED Cornering Headlights
    The bold face of the FJR1300ES uses bright, high-efficiency LED lighting, featuring Yamaha’s advanced cornering headlight system. Above the quad-element LED headlight assembly, six LED units illuminate sequentially to shine through turns, controlled by Yamaha’s IMU technology. The headlights also feature toolless adjustment of headlight angle to account for vehicle loads. Finally, the LED tail lamp assembly combines visibility, style and quality.
  • Aerodynamic Bodywork
    Headlined by the LED headlight system, the FJR1300ES’s stylish, supersport-inspired bodywork with integrated airflow management keeps the rider comfortable. A central vent beneath the instrument panel reduces negative pressure for less buffeting, and adjustable fairing side panels let the rider direct lower body airflow.
  • Adjustable Everything
    A good touring machine adapts to the rider, and the FJR1300ES does just that. The plush, thick saddle offers plenty of comfort and is adjustable over 0.8 inches without tools. The handlebars can be set to one of three positions to fine-tune rider ergonomics, and the windscreen is electronically adjustable for a range over 5.1 inches.
  • Electronically Adjustable Suspension
    The electronically adjusted suspension makes finding the right setting as easy as pushing a button. With four pre-load settings, three damping presets, and an additional seven damping fine-tuning adjustments, the FJR1300ES suspension can be dialed-in to meet the needs of the rider, passenger and riding conditions.
  • Powerful, Secure Braking
    The advanced front and rear brakes provide exceptional braking power and control and are linked via Yamaha’s Unified Braking System, for balanced braking power. ABS further boosts rider confidence by preventing wheel lock-ups in reduced-traction conditions.
  • High-Strength Aluminum Frame
    Similar to Yamaha’s supersport machines, the FJR1300ES features a beefy aluminum frame which provides an ideal balance of chassis stiffness and feedback, with a long swingarm to enhance traction and improve rear suspension action.
  • Large Fuel Tank
    The ergonomically-shaped, large-capacity, 6.6-gallon fuel tank offers excellent comfort, generous range and is constructed from steel, allowing for the use of magnetic tank bags.
  • Thorough Instrumentation
    The three-part instrument panel provides riders with all the information they need while enjoying the road, including trip computer functions, riding modes and more. Riders can easily customize the dot-matrix multi-function display to show the information they want with a flick of the bar-mounted switchgear, too.


  • Integrated Luggage
    Subframe-fitted, quick-release luggage mounts allow easy use of the standard fitted hard side cases, which are conveniently matched to the ignition key. Each case is designed to match the lines of the FJR1300ES, provide plenty of storage space, and thanks to the compact mounting system, overall vehicle width is minimized for in-town maneuverability.
  • Standard Heated Grips
    The FJR1300ES includes heated grips straight from factory, adjustable through the multi-function instrumentation, and with four settings (three settings plus off) of available heat for cooler conditions and foul weather.
  • Fairing-Mounted Storage
    A glove box is built into the upper fairing and includes a 12V outlet to charge phones, GPS units, electric vests and other compact electrical devices.
