Yamaha introduced its remaining 2014 models earlier today, including the FJR1300ES featuring upside down forks and electronic suspension adjustment. This system was previously available in Europe but not the U.S. market. The sophisticated system allows several spring pre-load positions (ranging from single rider without luggage to two rider with luggage settings) as well as multiple damping settings, all controlled electronically.
The 2014 FJR1300ES is priced at $16,890, while the standard FRJ1300A (available in the same Candy Red color shown) is priced at $15,890.
A redesigned Zuma scooter with a single headlight and unique graphics was also introduced at an MSRP of $2,590. This model is known as the Zuma 50FX, and it achieves the same claimed 132 mpg as the standard Zuma (which also returns).
Yamaha confirmed that its top shelf sport models, including the YZF-R6 and YZF-R1 are returning for 2014 without changes aside from new paint schemes. The rumored appearance of three-cylinder sport models (aside from the previously announced FZ-09) did not materialize.
The Star cruiser line sees most models return without significant changes, although the Raider SCL (pictured below) gets a new look with a Matte Iron paint job and numerous blacked out components (which you can see in the photo), as well as oxidized, titanium-coated fork tubes. New details include LED turn signals and a new two-tone leather seat with beige/red stitching. The Raider SCL is still limited to 500 units and is priced at $16,990.
Several other models return without significant changes, and you can find out all the details at Yamaha’s web site. According to Yamaha, none of the returning models have received price increases for 2014.
