6-speed transmission with A&S clutch

The FJR1300A is equipped with a 6-speed transmission that enables the rider to make optimal use of the massive reserves of torque for rapid acceleration - while the high 6th gear gives lower rpm at high cruising speeds. And for smoother downshifting and enjoyable cornering, an Assist and Slipper (A&S) clutch is fitted.

Cruise Control

Touring riders can cover many thousands of kilometers in a few days, and so anything that makes those hours in the saddle even more relaxing has got to be welcomed. Operating between 3rd and 6th gear from 50km/h to 180km/h, the cruise control system enhances riding enjoyment and allows the rider to respect speed limits.
