Yamaha has refreshed the very long running FJR1300 for 2016 as even though the axiom may be “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” sooner or later you have to do something. In this case Yamaha has upgraded the 6-speed transmission with a taller sixth gear and modifications to provide quieter and smoother running. As an extra little bonus for the Iron Butt crowd and others who like to run all night, the ’16 FJR also features LED corner lighting so when you dive into that corner at 2 am you can see where you are going. The Canadian MSRP for the non-electronic suspension version of the 2016 FJR1300 will be $18,099 – a competitive price in this category.
