Except for better wind protection, I don’t have much id want them to “update”. They’re at opposite ends of the spectrum reliability wise. Having owned both, that’s important to me. It’s be nice for them to try some different stuff though. Small stuff, like BMW’s tilting display so you can shift it if the glare is bad, some of the little stuff. Maybe a new display to lure younger riders. I’ve ridden “TFT” equipped bikes, and while they weren’t any easier to “read”, the dash looked nice.

No commercials. No dictators.

Yamaha will order the parts necessary for a batch run based on their sales projection, make a one time production run with X number. Normal in this kind of industry, not a problem with a flexible assembly line that produces several models.

Everyone I know including myself have found the Super Tenere to be just “meh”, and the tracer GT in my opinion was a big swing and a miss, just not as “finished” as the fjr, they fell short in my opinion. With all the issues that I’ve had with my fjr I have seriously looked at other bikes but not found any to fill the shoes of my fjr.

I will also admit that I really dislike the top heaviness of the fjr and post covid and my own Vertigo problems I plan on taking ride to check out the ninja 1000 touring if they’ve indeed added cruise to it for a lighter bike but quite frankly I find the bags to be way to small. Then again the VFR series has some appeal, just no cruise. We’ll see !
I have owned a Ninja 1000 and love the bike. There is a very good chance I will replace my Superduke with another at some point. But it’s no replacement for long distance touring.

The 2020 Ninja 1000 does indeed have cruise control. Dealers already have them and I have sat on two of them. They also have a new TFT dash with the Bluetooth connection for what Kawasaki calls “Rideology”.

The bags on the Ninja 1000 are much bigger than you’d expect. A friend had a Ninja and they held a lot of gear. I was both surprised and impressed by the bags capacity. I don’t think heated grips are and option? What’s with the Japanese, one bike lacks cruise another lacks heated grips, chain drive without centerstands? It would cost them pennies more to offer a complete package.

2021 they will probably come with a new FJR not a lot of changes but same like GEN III (2013 - 2015) --> (2016-2020) introduction of 6 speed and slipper clutch

They will change the looks for sure and maybe some more refinement to the engine, instrumentation and so... but not going to make a completely new motorcycle.

Sounds like speculation to me

What you don't want is what they did in EU and that's announce the Special Edition in North America.... that will be the end.
I doubt very much we're gonna see any significant changes... but kudos to Yamaha for sticking in the game this long.
