Yamaha FJR1300AE becomes the new Italian State Police Motorcycle

I found this YouTube video posted by Yamaha Motor Europe on July 28th interesting since they are supposedly discontinuing the model.

"Thanks to its great performance combined with long distance capabilities, the iconic FJR1300AE has been selected by the Italian National Police as the official motorcycle for patrolling. Dressed in white and blue and equipped with all the features required by those in the line of duty, this fleet of 90 motorcycles represents the perfect solution for different road and weather conditions."

They can still buy them until the end of the year, lol. However, we don't know if there's an exemption for police applications.

I love the color scheme. Kind of like the GS Cooley.

Really surprised that they didn’t choose either a ducati or one of the Other Italian bikes to keep it a national thing.

This also always makes me wonder if they use an “interceptor” special seat or probably the Yamaha comfort seat as the oe seat is sooooo bad, although you guy’s with a small butt seem to be ok with it, it’s a real butt bone killer for us normal people. 😁

As far as I know, the US police can still buy ST1300 police bikes.
(Lord I hate MTV style vids slated for people with 1 second attention spans.)

I think Harley will custom paint your new bike how you want it for $500. I wish other bike builders would do that. Man, those AEs with that color scheme really do it for me. I can't figure out why Yamaha only used that gorgeous red color in 2014.

That's wrong. If you buy an HD the standard color is gloss black and if you want any other listed available color like red then it's another $450. That doesn't mean you can get any color you want just whatever colors are optional for the model you're considering. So all other colors except gloss black are optional. So, I'm glad only HD works this way.
