Magazines are saying this is the end but all I have seen saying so do it in a soft fuzzy way to C.Y.A. as if they don’t really know.

Yes, Europe has new excessive emission standards. Haven’t understood once 99% of emissions are cut there is no point in killing the beast to reduce the remaining 1%.


Remembered how common it was to find plastic parts on Hondas with mold stamps indicating manufacture 4 or 5 years earlier than the model year. How Honda ran out of PC800 fenders and front disc shrouds so they deleted the shroud and used a fender from another model to use remaining inventory to producer the 1997 and 1998 models. So telling you more than I know: even if production has ended Europe won’t get more but is likely the USA will continue to get FJRs until Yamaha runs out of parts.

The FJR has been a slow seller in the US already... European riders have kept it alive.

Unfortunately, they don't affect the vote or worse, accept the globalist wealth-redistribution climate hoax that would make this amazing machine "illegal". Truly sad...

relhok - I'm curious how you know the FJR1300 has been a slow seller in the U.S. Are sales figures shown somewhere?

I don’t like use of the word ‘hoax’ with regard to the climate crisis that now faces us. The word hoax introduces a political slant to something that is a scientific issue.

It is appropriate when it is.

And inappropriate in this thread and forum. I suggest we get back to the topic at hand and leave the politics elsewhere.

Thank you.

It's a safe call when there are dealers with 2016s still sitting on the lot.
