The same bike with more range would make it an awesome SPORT-tourer. A small fairing would be welcomed though. Like i buy motorcycles so i can look at clouds and shit...
These samethings copyrights and carbs happened for the FZ1. It was a FZ1t or something like that... Supposedly a sport-tourer version of the FZ1 never happened though.
I'll bet if they did do a FJ-09, it comes with a bigger tank, maybe 1.5-2 gallons bigger. Take away the current "A" mode. add a gas saver mode, and add a Fairing (hopefully its small).
w/ ABS, electronic suspension, lower fairing, heated grips, power socket, - ~$15k *** I doubt this one. To close to the FJR, you want a FJR buy an FJR.
w/ ABS, normal suspension no heated, no power socket - ~$10k
w/o ABS, normal suspension no heated... - ~$9k *** I call the first black one. Or a red one painted black is fine too.
but really I think they will just add a fairing. I road the FZ-09 on a windy day and didn't mind the wind at all. I might go naked, WOOOHOOO!!! Red one painted black please.
If there are other 09 models with larger gas tanks lets hope they are compatible (other than the fake air scoop trim I guess) with the FZ/MT 09. Not sure I'd do the tank swap but would be nice to have the option.
