The maximum characteristics of the motor are from 6000 to 8000 rpm. The engine has 2 camshafts and 4 valves per cylinder. Power system - carburetors.

Otherwise, the Yamaha XJR 1200 has a traditional layout for a motorcycle of this class: a steel duplex frame, classic suspension in the form of a conventional telescopic fork and double shock absorber at the rear, powerful disc brakes, hydraulic clutch and a 5-speed gearbox.

In 1996, a limited version of the Yamaha XJR1200R was offered for the Japanese market, which was equipped with a half fairing. This modification did not receive wide popularity and disappeared from the line in the same year.

In 1997, the Yamaha XJR1200SP version appeared on the European market, which is distinguished by the original black-white-yellow coloring. This modification continued to be offered in parallel with the regular version until the end of production.
