Yamaha Niken corner carver open for booking

Yamaha Niken leaning three-wheeler will be open for online orders on May 17, 2018, Yamaha has announced. The Yamaha Niken made its global debut at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show held in October 2017.

The Yamaha Niken is based on the Yamaha MT-09, sharing the same 847cc, DOHC, four valve-per-cylinder, in-line three-cylinder engine, but has a completely unique leaning three-wheeled design, with two front wheels. The Niken will be the first production leaning three-wheeler motorcycle once deliveries begin. Yamaha has also released a latest video focussing on the Niken’s electronic package.

The Niken will come with a standard slip and assist clutch, quickshifter, three-mode traction control, and cruise control. The cruise control system is usable from fourth gear and over 50 kmph speed for effortless highway cruising. LCD instrumentation and dual LED headlights underline the sharp and revolutionary styling of the Niken. At the front, the Niken gets two 15-inch wheels, supported by two pairs of inverted forks that hinge at their crowns to allow the Niken to lean through corners just like a regular two-wheeled motorcycle.
