When we think of Yamaha, we immediately envision modern, powerful motorcycles that sport aerodynamic designs with sharp angles and menacing looks. However, by releasing the 2015 Yamaha XJR1300 motorcycle, the Japanese company honors the classic two-wheelers that allowed it to become so popular in its early days.
The XJR1300 boasts a rather minimalistic look thanks to its slim fuel tank and exposed engine. The engine is a 4-cylinder DOHC 1,250 fuel-injected one that features a 4-2-1 exhaust system in matte black and a new muffler tail cap. The bike flaunts a power output of 98 horsepower, and it comes in three different color variants named Matte Grey, Midnight Black and Power Blue. The thing is, Yamaha plans to release the XJR1300 in Europe starting December, and we have no idea when or if it will ever be available in the States.
