Yamaha Motor Revs Your Heart


“Turn up the revolution”

1.Revolutionary Leaning Multi-Wheel Chassis

The NIKENTM LMW chassis is an exclusive motorcycle control system that provides unparalleled rider confidence across a wide range of road conditions. Because of its two front wheels, the NIKEN provides higher amounts of overall grip, cornering confidence, rider comfort and road manners-all while maintaining natural steering feel.

2.Radical Styling

NIKEN doesn’t look like anything on the road because it isn’t like anything else on the road. Graceful curves highlight the mass-forward design to show off the unique LMW system, combining futuristic technology with flowing, organic style.

3.Powerful Inline-Triple

Derived from the award-winning MT-09™, the advanced CP3® inline 3-cylinder motor uses Yamaha’s full range of performance technology to produce exceptional torque with linear power delivery. This results in a flexible, responsive power plant that combines the best aspects of both 2- and 4-cylinder motors while remaining light, slim and compact.

4.Advanced Rider Aids

NIKEN features a complete range of technologies to boost rider confidence and performance, including Yamaha’s ride-by-wire throttle system, adjustable throttle mapping, traction control and ABS. Riders also enjoy the convenience of a factory quick shifter and integrated cruise control.
