What we say…

The XJR1300 is back! 20 years of evolution have delivered a stunning take on the icon. With the largest displacement inline-4 air-cooled engine in the market, the raw power commands

Yamaha’s search for innovation has led to collaborations with the world’s most talented custom bike builders, including Deus Ex Machina who created the beautiful Eau Rouge and provided
inspiration for the XJR1300 Racer.

The carbon cowling and front fender, racer tank and clip-on bars show off the air-cooled engine. The riding position is focused, with a narrower, more forward sportier feel. A shorter tail adds to the muscular silhouette with the narrower front tank.


Carbon Fibre Front Cowling

A stunning carbon fibre cowling takes centre stage at the front of the XJR1300 Racer. The lightweight, premium material complements the build quality of the motorcycle and defines it as a true street racer icon.


Aluminium Clip-on Bars

The XJR Racer gets a cool set of aluminium clip-on bars to drop the riding position slightly and leave the rider in a very purposeful stance. Visually cool, the bars also add to the sporty riding experience.


Muscular powerful air-cooled inline-4 engine

The beating heart of the XJR1300 is the DOHC 4-valve, air-cooled 4-stroke, 4-cylinder engine. This is the largest displacement of any on the market. With maximum torque reached at 6,000 rpm, the XJR1300 has a broad range of torque on offer right from the off.


Slim fuel tank design

The fuel tank of the XJR1300 has been redesigned and now has a narrower, sleeker look. The new compact, minimalist tank offers a concave knee pocket based on old race machine design. The slimmer look means the rider is now even more aware of the impressive engine, seemingly straddling it directly.


4-2-1 matt black exhaust system

The 2015 machine’s stripped back style reflecting the iconic racers of the past is enhanced by the matt black four into one exhaust pipes and muffler. The muffler is finished with a newly designed, substantial end cap, completing the look.


Sculpted solo-seat style

Every aspect of the latest XJR is influenced by the stripped back style and the new retro stitching lines and a riding position that matches the sporty ride. A carbon seat cowling gives a real single seat, making the sports heritage of the machine unmistakable.

What Yamaha says…

Taking the XJR’s stripped back style and raw,muscular power, the XJR1300 Racer comes with an
additional slick carbon fibre cowling and short carbon front fender, in true classic Café Racer style.

The slimmed fuel tank design, sculpted solo-seat aluminium side covers and clip-on handlebars to reflect the production racers of the 1970s whilst being wrapped in the latest materials.

The construction of the XJR has also been simplified with the frame and electrics so although it’s born custom from the factory it’s more accessible for owners to customise at home and take their imagination further.
