On a lark I went looking for something that might replace my FJR. Nothing at Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha, Suzuki or Indian caught my eye. Closest was BMW R1250RT optioned out to $25,000 for cruise control. But, BMW is offering a $1000 incentive to sweeten the deal!
The Indian FTR1200S would start to be interesting if it had belt drive, hard bags, and wind/weather protection.
Also the K1600GT.

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.
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.
