Yamaha has the 2020 FJR on their website.

Yep. One more year where there supposedly wasn’t supposed to be an fjr. One more year where there is an fjr.... I like the color.

Bill, I believe there was always going to be a 2020. In Europe they have some badged as “Final Edition”. If I understand it correctly 2020 is the last year, at least in Europe. No matter what happens my guess is there’s still about 2-3 years supply sitting on dealer’s floors so not to worry. I don’t expect my ‘14 will wear out any time soon.

Sure would be nice IF a 2020 “special” actually would come with the “touring” windscreen & seat as standard equipment instead of the miserable seat they’ve always mounted. Like Bill above I find the color along with the gold wheels & accents very nice, I’ve long thought that having my current wheels anodized gold would look good on my “fastest color” 2014 red.

Hope you all had a wonderful xmas and will have a great new year, I look forward to hearing the ride reports from those of you who get to ride during the normally harsh winter here in nw Indiana. Thx for the “lift” !

If Yamaha was looking at FJR websites and seeing how individualistic the personal preferences are for windshields and saddles, a brief perusal would be exhibit #1 why they WOULDN'T do that.

FJR owners have more disposable income that typical motorcyclists and are used to making whatever modifications are needed to make the bike theirs.

Wheaton, I somewhat agree with your analogy but would add that if they did make any attempt to understand their intended customers they would realize that easily the most complained about feature would easily be the seat with the windshield and the poor rear subframes in second.

As you stated many would still go with some kind of aftermarket seat but the number of oe seat happy people would be quite a bit more, imho of course. I think the touring screen as oe would please most as well as seen by the number of people here that go with that, but some wouldn’t be happy as you stated but I think more would be than not.

The stock seat with only a few exceptions is just plain horrible, I applaud those that can tolerate it but it rates as 1 of the 2 worst seats I’ve ever experienced, they should be embarrased because a much better seat is an easy fix.

The subframe is something else altogether that should embarrass Yamaha that they’ve created a whole aftermarket segment to fix that shortcoming. Simply adding their heavy aluminum rack is a huge improvement but I’m sure that Givi(sr357) and Shad (tube rack) are happy that Yamaha doesn’t care, maybe one of the Yamaha execs brother-in-laws owns those companies. My .02 for what it’s worth. But the seat & subframe should embarrass them.

There were serious discussions almost every year about the previous year being the last. Someone would actually talk to someone at corporate and be told they had no information on another FJR being offered past the old model. Then the normal deadline would pass for the new year model to appear on the website and the bells would toll louder. I’m not discounting any current information out there. My post was referencing the annual “FJR is out of production/going out of production” discussion that has been happening every year since before I bought my 2014.

Nope, not a fan here either. What's with the tank stripe? That looks like crap.

Easy fix with a little touch-up paint
