The XJR1300 is back! 20 years of evolution have delivered a stunning take on the icon. With the largest displacement inline-4 air-cooled engine in the market, the raw power commands respect.

Yamaha’s search for innovation has led to collaborations with the world’s most talented custom bike builders, including Deus Ex Machina who created the beautiful Eau Rouge and provided inspiration for the XJR1300 Racer.

The carbon cowling and front fender, racer tank and clip-on bars show off the air-cooled engine. The riding position is focused, with a narrower, more forward sportier feel. A shorter tail adds to the muscular silhouette with the narrower front tank.
