Check Out New Footage of Yamaha’s 2019 NIKEN Leaning Multi-Wheel Motorcycle

Yamaha first debuted their new NIKEN leaning multi-wheel bike at the EICMA motorcycle show in late 2017, and ever since we’ve been ready to see more. Well, the time has come – Yamaha recently released three new videos showing footage of this technology in action. Yes, there are other three-wheeled rides out there – but the NIKEN is unlike anything we’ve seen before. We were instantly impressed with how it can carve corners with precision and ease. The control the NIKEN gives riders is truly mind-blowing – with its two front tires leaning in parallel unison, this bike provides riders with double the grip (and looks pretty dang cool while doing it).

The videos highlight the bike’s ability to lean deep into angles (an incredible max of 45 degrees to be exact – you read that right) and gives off a more sporty riding experience. The footage also gives you an in-depth look at the technology behind the bike – including the revolutionary leaning multi-wheel chassis, their radical styling, the powerful inline-triple motor, and advanced rider aids.

If you are ready to take on the thrill, the NIKEN will be available in the second half of 2018 – we can’t wait to see this bad boy out on the road. So, the wait is officially on, but in the meantime, check out the all of the videos, photos, and more details here.

  1. Hmmm. Does April 1 come early in Japan? Alternate response: Does Yamaha have a corporate death wish for its motorcycle division? This ride is freakishly unattractive and leaves to the machine that which should be left to test the skill of the rider. A dud destined to take up space and gather dust on showroom floors? Nah … this has to be an April 1 thing.

  2. I Think as Always, Yamaha comes up with amazing Ideas, The Niken would be a great all
    around motorcycle and would be more appealing to those riders with limited riding skills, And there are alot of them out there Riding motorcycles right now, If Yamaha
    can reduce the fear many have about crashing and handling in a turns. It should do well for them. As for me I cant wait to ride one.
