What does FJR stand for?

I was just wondering if any of you folks came up with a clever saying as to what FJR stands for. "Freaking Jet Rocket "... let's hear what you have fellows.

Doesnít really spell anything. Yamaha marketing execs liked the sound of it and grabbed it before another manufacturer thought of it.

I have found that the FJR stand is really useful for holding the bike up so it won’t fall over

Hey come on, someone had to say it...

If you can work out what FJ stands for (FJ1100, FJ1200 etc) then you might have a chance of working what the R means added on the end.

If of course, it actually means anything intelligible. After all, what do any of the following mean (or the myriad others) VFR, GSX, GSXR, ZXR, ZZR, YZF etc etc


Edit.....i should say, I’m not criticising anyone for thinking about what it MIGHT mean, if anything I’m having a crack at motorcycle manufacturers for not giving us better letters to work with
N4HHE and skippy344! like this.

Cheers,

Anthony
