Nice test guys. Sounds like Yamaha really listened to FJR owners and addressed what they could with the revamp, while keeping the price in line.

Spent some time on a friend's older FJR, really liked the engine, lots of torque down low, strong all through the range, always ready to rock, but completely usable. It has good smooth power and the right amount of flywheel effect. The "feel" of the power is right and well integrated for the bike's purpose. My friend's older bike handled well, but I ran into dragging footpegs pretty quickly on the mountain roads we were on. Good to see Yamaha addressed that.

I could see buying a clean used '13 FJR down the line at some point. It sounds like a good well balanced and relatively affordable package.
