Yamaha XJR1300 2010

Beyond awesome -

XJR1300 - Muscle for the street
When you want proper muscle there’s no substitute for cc. The XJR1300 bursts with 1,251cc of genuine air-cooled performance and is packed with cutting-edge technology. The XJR1300 is powerfully built, with an awesome chassis and in-your-face engine architecture. And the XJR has a reputation that goes before it – authentic, tough, muscular, uncompromising. Rule number one on the street: no one messes with the XJR1300.

I think this XJR is meant to compete more with the new cb1100?

Good to see you around "Opper" / how is that single arm swing thing comming along, road going now or ?!?


You might want to check out the "old new" Kawa Eddie Lawson replica aswell - can't remember the name of the counter part from Suzuki, but they "all" make bike like this
The Honda was winner of the German magazine Motorrad "king of the hill" test last year, heavy - but power nonstop

I love the silver model but did they mention what new tech it has?

So far my fav blast from the past was the Kawi ZRX1200R. In Lawson green of course.

We are quite fortunate to have the XJR, GSX & The CB here.

YAMAHA XJR1300 2008 For Sale in Nelson Marlborough ? Bike Trader New Zealand

SUZUKI GSX1400 2009 For Sale in Taranaki ? Bike Trader New Zealand

Honda Motorcycles NZ - Road - CB1300

Although the XJR & the GSX seems to be off the Yamaha & Suzuki site! I know a good rider that has a XJR in his stable amongst others. He loves his XJR, but reckons he should have gone for the GSX. The Ohlins that come with the XJR, are apparently a "cheap" set, although not bad.
