The 2013 Yamaha FJR 1300A receives a welcome update that improves the design and performance. This sport-touring bike is designed to give the rider as much comfort and amenities as possible while improving distance capabilities, performance, and reliability. The FJR 1300A is powered by a liquid-cooled, four-cylinder, 1298cc engine with a five-speed transmission and a wet, hydraulic clutch. It also has a dual overhead camshaft valve train, is fueled by an electronic fuel injection system, and has a wide bore of 79 mm and a short stroke of 66.2 mm. This gives the bike 101.8 lb-ft of torque at 7000 rpm and 144.1 hp at 8000 rpm. The new engine offers reduced friction, improved heat dissipation, lighter weight, and better performance with a three-horsepower and three lb-ft of torque gain. The bike has decent handling due to its suspension design and big power output, which are both helpful since it is a bit heavy, weighing in at 644 pounds. The dual front discs are very powerful and have an antilock braking system that functions during all weather and road conditions.
