Derived from Supersport, sport touring Yamaha Xjr is a motorcycle without compromise, powerful and fast. The 2012 version has been further enhanced, especially in electronics, to better manage the 998 cc engine, the same used in the track, which needs a good rider and maximum assistance from electronic control unit for beginners.
the chassis is awesome and you can steer with ease even in everyday traffic, thanks to handling ensured by excellent balancing and a fully aluminum frame that provides rigidity and lightness. The position of the driver has moved ahead with a lower handlebar and close, to make driving even faster and sustained efforts for sports without the driver. Maybe the saddle would require more padding and who has pushed beyond the 200 km/h, he felt a certain hardness uncomfortable. Added to this is the fork from 624 mm long.
Front brake dual discs, is essential to maintain a safe braking on this power, motorcycles with four-piston calipers. Rear single disc 245 mm. Strangely, no ABS is standard and should be requested at the time of order with an additional expenditure of EUR 500. Strange choice of Yamaha for a power like the 4 cylinder supersport that develops 150 hp.
Another complaint is the small size of the shell, but that you want us to, when it comes to speed and raw power you don’t look to autonomy. Semi naked, as aesthetic now has accustomed us modern fashion. Yours with 11,290 euros without ABS.
