What about this, Honda CB 1300 2001, 12 656 km. Not quite as cool as XJR but probably a bit more modern while still got the retro look...maybe :?:

[quote="Arson"]...but apart from moving from Gen 1 to Gen 2 (minor changes in engine and frame to make it more “touring” than “sport” plus some cosmetics)...

Not to mention getting rid of excess engine heat better. The Gen 1 FJRs would cook the rider.

Although, to be fair, I would assume that this was more of an issue in the American SouthWest than the Channel Islands.
