Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A. will be making the FJR1300P, a new police version of its FJR1300 sport tourer, available for use by law enforcement and municipal organizations in the U.S.
The FJR1300P blends the performance, handling and reliability of the standard FJR1300A with the capability of adding an arsenal of equipment designed exclusively for police use. Yamaha says that “thanks to development feedback obtained directly from police departments and municipal organizations in various European countries, the FJR1300P sets a new benchmark for performance and reliability, critical for the demands of police departments across the United States.”
The standard FJR1300A should make a decent base for a police bike (read our full Tour Test Review of the 2016 FJR1300ES here), with its 1,298cc, DOHC, 16 valve inline-four good for 128 rear-wheel horsepower, ride-by-wire throttle, 6-speed tranny and 6.6-gallon fuel tank.
Special features exclusive to the FJR1300P include:
- Pre-wired connectors for front and rear flashing lights, a siren and speakers
- Pre-wired handlebar control switch
- An auxiliary battery compartment
- Taller windscreen
- Knuckle visors integrated into the mirrors
- Wind deflectors for the rider’s feet
- Engine guards
- Rear-mounted radio box
