Yamaha have announced their XJR1300 for 2013.
But where’s the excitement?
It doesn’t look much different to this ’99 model I sold to my friend Ratboy a few months ago —
Fuel injection instead of carbs – single sider exhaust – adjustable shocks – more black paint and that’s about it.
I admit I do like that retro style and wouldn’t say ‘no’ to another one if they were still selling at around six grand new 🙂
But I’ve already had this fella —
another like this —
plus this one —
and a 400cc version of this —
So maybe I should go for something different – like this instead —
The latest Yamaha T-Max scooter. She costs more than the XJR but it couldn’t be a mistake to buy one – not when she is one of the biggest sellers in Europe – could it?
