Iím underwhelmed.

The Indian FTR1200S would start to be interesting if it had belt drive, hard bags, and wind/weather protection.
Also the K1600GT.

You would think for the last Ultimate FJR, Yamaha would finally make a new and perfect seat that every FJR owner since 2006 would have to buy. 😁

I'd like to know how they got such an old design to pass Euro 5, shows they won't be giving up anytime soon, isn't it expensive to achieve those kind of emissions?

So long as the motorcycle has been available prior to January 2020 it can continue to be sold under Euro 4 regulations. Iím assuming that itís going to be too expensive to convert the FJR to Euro 5, but who knows what Yamaha May have up their sleeve.

I guess we will have to hold our breath for a year in North America to see if sales are worth continuing the FJR without the European market.

The possibility is there, seeing how the "last special edition" is not for our market.

Iím certainly no expert, but the FJR is a very mildly tuned engine. I would not think it would be that difficult meeting the new standards, especially since it has evolved with modern fuel injection and ride by wire.

Itís interesting how Euro regulations, as with so many areas, have taken over from the old days when so much was US dominated.

It is hard to fathom how a vehicle that gets 50MPG can be put out of business due to emissions standards.

The trouble with this logic is that it extends to diesel vehicles which offer excellent fuel consumption but seem to suffer from considerable emissions problems.
