NIKEN: Ultimate corner carving experience
In 2018 the launch of the radical NIKEN 3-wheel motorcycle brought a whole new riding experience to
the motorcycle world.
Equipped with innovative Leaning Multi-Wheel technology and dual tube upside down forks, the
NIKEN is built to deliver the most amazing corner carving experience together with higher rider
confidence in all conditions. With a larger contact patch between the tyres and the road surface, the
two leaning front wheels give increased levels of front end grip that is particularly noticeable during
cornering and braking, and it is this unique and dynamic characteristic of the NIKEN that makes it feel
and handle like no other motorcycle.
Feedback from the public who have participated in the 2018 NIKEN Demo Tours across Europe has
confirmed that this ground-breaking motorcycle is already winning over many motorcyclists who -
quite understandably - initially viewed the whole 3-wheel concept with a degree of caution.
Those riders who have had a chance to evaluate this high specification 3-wheel Sport Tourer confirm
its remarkable ability to corner with increased confidence even in adverse weather conditions, with
many potential customers confirming that the NIKEN's handling has genuinely brought a new
dimension to the Sport Touring segment.
The key to understanding the attraction of NIKEN is to ride it, and with the model now arriving at
Yamaha dealers, those who have been unable to attend the European NIKEN Demo Tour can discover
the unique 3-wheel riding experience for themselves.
When it comes to new or unfamiliar technology, many people - including motorcyclists - can often
resist change and stick to what they know. But the NIKEN has shown that riding is believing, and with
its proven ability to deliver the most exciting corner carving experience, this unique motorcycle is
introducing a new era in Sport Touring design.
