Yamaha FJR 1300

A new breed of Guardia Civil motorbikes are set to hit the streets, with the traditional BMW 1200 RT being replaced by a more powerful Yamaha FJR 1300.

The FJR 1300 has a 1,298 cc inline-four liquid-cooled, DOHC, four valves per cylinder, electronic fuel injection engine, offering 141.5 hp. The bike under normal conditions has a top speed of around 240 kilometres per hour, although is considered fuel efficient under normal road speed conditions.

The BMW R1200RT was first introduced in 2005 to replace the R1150RT model and features a 1,170 cc flat-twin engine with a six-speed gearbox, with just 109 hp and a top speed of around 200 kilometres per hour.

The new bike has been gradually introduced in a few choice areas of the country, in order to test the vehicle under normal operational conditions, and will continue to roll out throughout the country shortly.
