Power is nothing without control and the XJR1300’s 298 mm dual disc front brake with monobloc four-piston calipers do just that – and the discs not only ensure you keep in charge at all times, but look great too.
Lightweight 3-Spoke Alloy Wheels
Serious power demands strong traction and handling. The XJR1300’s 3-spoke alloy wheels minimise unsprung weight for sharp steering while the wide tyres provide excellent road-holding.
Vocal EXUP Exhaust
With the XJR1300, your arrival is announced as much by the powerful purr of the engine as by the dominating looks of the bodywork. That purr is accentuated by the great sound of the upswept, low emission, EXUP exhaust. It’s the kind of simple pleasure that you only get from a classically-styled muscle bike.
The XJR1300 has the big, burly engine to back up its powerful looks. The air-cooled, 4-stroke, forward-inclined parallel 4-cylinder, 4-valve, DOHC engine produces a mighty 71.9 kW (98 PS) of power at 8,000 rpm and torque of 108.4 Nm (11.1 kg-m) at 6,000 rpm.
To fully appreciate great power, you need to stay comfortable. The XJR1300’s suspension system is based around fully-adjustable Öhlins shocks and chunky, muscular-looking 43 mm front forks, which provide total cushioning against rougher sections of road.
Boldly Styled Chassis
With a bike this powerful, you want to make an impact. The frame of the XJR1300 ensures that you do. The superbly balanced chassis accentuates the bike’s bulk and the double cradle tubular steel frame, reinforced with a box-section aluminium swingarm, gives even more muscularity.
