Fjr vs ........

This weekend I went on a ride around the Olympic peninsula with 3 other guys .
A 2007 Aprillia 1000 ?? a Buell 1200 and a Yamaha MT 9

the FJR was quicker then all of them when we did the some what required roll on races
My friend with the Buell was so impressed that he put his newly purchased Buell up for sale the next day .
so he can by an FJR ,, and plus his wife will fit in the back easier ..even though she only weighs 90 LBS ..still no fun with her on the Buell

2010 FJR 1300

The FJR is deceptively fast. If it was a naked bike and skinnier, you'd get a much better perspective of how fast it pulls. Not uncommon for me to look down and see 90ish when you think you're going 65. Haven't run a lot of bikes with it...but I've gotten the flustered "I give up" thumbs up from several muscle and sports car owners. Better come with 6/700Hp to this party...haha

Not to sort of fact check this discussion and I am a fan of the FJR and I know itís fast but....the FJR is sporting a minimum of 30% more displacement than 2 of the other bikes and in reality the Buell only has a Sportster engine. Roll ons from 60 and the FJR wins, 0-60 or 20-80 and the MT-9 or Aprilia will win. Donít try that game against a Multistrada youíll lose every time and it might be harder to beat a GS than you think! I know that because it took me to 135 to get past a well ridden GS one time. FJR is a great bike and itís fast but beating old Buells and Aprilias is not the stuff legends are made of. I apologize in advance if Iím raining on anyoneís parade.

well I dont think anyone her thinks the FJR is faster than a Ducati or any new 1000cc sportbike .. all I did was state what it was faster then with MY group ..and for that matter this article https://www.zeroto60times.com/vehicl...-60-mph-times/
this says the fjr and the mt 9 are going to be neck and neck ...and please check the year of the Aprilia ... if it were a 2020 ..the FJR would not have been in the same ball park .. or even the parking lot of said ball park PS .. my FJR the buell and the Aprilla were all "OLD : hahha
