Would buy one tomorrow if mine was stolen.
What a nimble bike for the size and weight with plenty of MUSCLE
The XJR 1300 is a joy to ride and is a great looking machine that turns heads .
I have riden this bike for over 2 year on some of western australias best and worst roads and never got off the bike feeling drained of energy due to the upright sitting postion, its easy to ride, handles well and is very reliable.It has a punch between 5000 to 6500 rpm it pulls like a train , great when you need it
The only thing that i would change on the xjr would be the seat , its too firm and after a few hundred kms it let you know
THE YAMAHA XJR1300 IS A BIKE FOR ALL RIDER......TEST RIDE ONE ,YOU NEVER KNOW YOU MIGHT JUST LIKE IT
