Perusing Akrapovic’s new exhaust catalog, our friends at Dutch motorcycle news site Oliepeil noticed something odd. This is clearly a Yamaha FJR1300, just one wearing a slightly modified fairing, blunter subframe and taller screen. Oh right, that must be the heavily rumored 2013 Yamaha FJR1300 then.
Scheduled for an official unveiling at Intermot next week, its rumored that the now very long-in-the-tooth FJR will receive a boost in capacity and maybe traction control, but not much else. Those rumors are born out in these photos, which show new side fairings, a slightly revised subframe and cleaner clocks, but an identical frame, engine cases and most other components.
