Adjustable bars and seat height, ABS brakes
Perhaps a little too quick for some. Panniers not the best quality

Rather than a develop a complete new FJR, the trusted 05 motor remains at the heart while the extremeties have been altered to meet with customer requests.

Bars and seat height are now adjustable to suit any size of rider, while the front fairing becomes more aerodynamic. The windscreen is adjustable and an air-management system provides rider comfort for most conditions.

The 1300cc engine produces bags of power, perhaps a little too much for some as the 05 model was rediculously quick for a sports tourer.
