2014 Yamaha FJR 1300ESSlowly but surely the venerable FJR is climbing the technological ladder that’s usually dominated by European machines. For 2014 Yamaha’s sport-touring bike gets electronically adjustable suspension as well as this lovely candy red color. The new suspension offers quickly switchable preload settings for single rider, single rider with luggage, two-up, and two-up with luggage. There are also several different damping settings that can be navigated via the cockpit’s LCD screen. The electronics come with some new hardware as well. New inverted forks sport independent damping mechanisms for each side. The left side generates the damping force for the compression stroke while the rebound comes from the right side (just like on the R1). All these suspension goodies add up to a $1,000 premium over the standard FJR 1300A ($15,890).
