March 11, 2015: Yamaha’s FJ­09 is one of the most anticipated new Sport Touring bikes on the market and it will be joining the massive fleet of demo bikes at Americade June 2­6, 2015.

“Yamaha is very pleased to be bringing the all new Sport Touring FJ­09 to Americade this year and feature this model for consumer demo rides! The new FJ­09 has taken the award winning design of the FZ­09 and modified it for the Sport Touring market, “ said Marcus DeMichele, media relations manager for

Yamaha, “We’ve improved on the 847cc liquid­cooled, in­line 3­cylinder, DOHC, 12­valve ‘Crossplane Crankshaft Concept’ engine design and included touring amenities such as a height adjustable windshield, side fairing, adjustable riding position, 12V electrical outlet and a generous 4.8 gallon fuel tank. And with available hard detachable luggage, the FJ­09 is ideal for the daily commute, short fun rides, or weekend getaways”.

Americade Director, Christian Dutcher, said “We’re excited that Yamaha is bringing the new FJ. Americade always has the most factory demos in the U.S. and Yamaha’s FJ is going to be a very popular choice among the attendees to Americade. I’m hoping to swing my leg over it.”
