Nothing to report defect wise. These are superb machines.
Well this is me on my 4th FJ1200; I just can't see past them.
I have owned loads of other bikes in the past, including Honda ST 1100 & NTV 650 Deauvile.
I sold my last FJ to buy a Honda Pan Euro. What a mistake that was. Within 100 yds of riding the Pan, the noise was hellish. After upgrading the screen twice, it was OK, but it's NO FJ.
Just had the chance of another FJ1200 for £800, full MOT & tax, in nice condition & new tyres, what a buy.
If you're thinking on buying one, do it. These are superb all rounders, & will take you away on your hols, as well as keep up with most things on the road.
Why buy an R1, when you can have these at a fraction of the price?
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
