FJR... I'll pass.
I was all wound up to get a new FJR... that is untill I actualy encountered one this summer in England. While the press has played up the FJR as the ultimate sport-touring machine, the reality is that it tends heavily to the touring side of the equation. Foremost because it is heavy, really heavy. I don't know what the actual weight is but my unofficial rock it up off the sidestand guesstimate would put it at 100-150lbs heavier than my RF900. The position is also much more akin to my father's Goldwing than any sport bike I have ever been aboard. The pegs are quite low, and the bars hover 5" above an already elevated triple clamp. Swinging a leg over the FJR, assuming the position, and hoisting it off the stand, was one of the most disappointing moments I can recall.
I, for one, will wait untill the Kawasaki ZX11 based bike is released, before considering a change in rides. As it stands the Concours is already a far sportier, cheaper, presently available choice.
