What we say…

What you're looking at is a class act.

The XJR was one of the original muscle bikes. This is a big bike in many ways. Big on power. Big on new tech and big on retro cool street style. The engine is a gem. Hewn from granite, totally unburstable & silky smooth. It pulls massive torque from everywhere in the rev range.

Ohlins suspension keeps it all in line. Build quality is exceptional.


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 design offers a concave knee pocket based on old race machines. 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, simplified style and the new seat is no exception. A beautifully sculpted design gives the appearance of a single seat with retro stitching lines and a riding position that matches the sporty ride.


Racing plate style aluminium side covers

The retro styling of the XJR continues with aluminium side covers in the style of a classic racing plate. The covers reflect the design of the racers of the 1970s. The plates have a buffed finish and include three round, air scoop style holes with mesh inserts that actively direct airflow into the powerful engine.


Tapered Handlebars

Lightweight aluminium tapered handlebars offer improved strength and balance for the new XJR. The position of the bars is slightly higher to combine with the sculpted solo-seat design in giving greater freedom of riding position.

What Yamaha says…

The XJR1300 is back as the latest offering in the Sports Heritage Range. 20 years of evolution have delivered a stunning take on the iconic machine. Featuring the largest displacement inline-4 air-cooled engine in the market, the raw power and stripped back muscle bike styling sets the latest XJR apart.

The XJR1300’s slim racer-style fuel tank and aluminium handlebars show off the aggressive large displacement air-cooled muscular engine.

A solo-seat styled design is complemented with an aluminium side cover in the style of a seventies racer number plate with three mesh inserts. The look is complete with a black 4-2-1 exhaust and new styled tail design.
