The FJR has cruise control, heated grips, more power (around 43 more horses) and runs on 87 Octane fuel.
The V-Strom is quite capable regardless of road conditions, but the FJR is more comfortable.
I recently retired and plan to do more long distance touring, so the FJR is a better choice for me.
I still have the 2014 V-Strom 1000A. It has been a great bike and I recently rode it from Florida to California and back. We did as many great motorcycle roads as possible, including the Talimena in Arkansas, the Million Dollar Hwy. in Colorado, Escalante and Zion in Utah, the canyons and Pacific Hwy. of California, and the Three Twisted Sisters in TX. The V-Strom handled it all beautifully, but at times I wished I had some of the creature comforts of the FJR.
