The RRP for the 2006 FJR1300 ASV is only $24,999 + dealer delivery and orc Key Features: -FJR1300AE receives, in addition to the other `06 refinements listed, heated grips and a Yamaha exclusive electric-shift five-speed transmission that eliminates the clutch lever entirely—now you can click off supersmooth shifts using either the left bar-mounted paddles or the foot-operated gearshift lever. -A light and rigid aluminum frame, sportbike running gear and standard hard sidebags go beautifully together. -Pushbutton adjustable windscreen and a thick comfy seat for two are perfect for comfortable, long-distance riding. -The world’s first supersport touring bike gets a host of refinements—including standard ABS and adjustable ergonomics that widen the gap between it and common sport tourers to a gaping chasm. -Advanced air management system and new bodywork, keep the FJR looking and feeling cool.
