Yamaha launches its 2013 motorcycle lineup



Yamaha enthusiasts will love the new 2013 motorcycles including the generously equipped FJR1300, which features a new aerodynamic front cowl, a sophisticated gauge cluster, electronic cruise control, and traction control.

''A number of customers have already stepped up and left deposits with our dealers, without even seeing the bike in person! This tells us the designers and engineers have done a great job,'' said John Bayliss, Motorcycle Product Manager at Yamaha Motor Canada Ltd.

Yamaha also introduced the V-Star 1300 Deluxe, the world’s first production midsize ''bagger.'' This one boasts a fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, 1300cc V-Twin engine, hard shell saddlebags, an iPod/iPhone ready audio system, and a Garmin Zumo 665 navigation system.

''This mid-size bagger fills a gap in the market place [...] and offers incredible comfort and convenience for a variety of riders,'' added Bayliss.

Both of these bikes will officially debut in Canada at the Toronto Motorcycle Show (December 7-9, 2012). You can take a look at the full 2013 Yamaha lineup here.
