Yamaha will present during the next EICMA, a three-wheeled vehicle with sporty inclination and high performance called Niken, and apparently is ready to go into production.
This beast is going to be absolutely amazing to handle, with surreal levels of grip and confidence in the front.
With two wheels in the front, the grip feels almost limitless, the stability is downright impressive and the driving experience feels like a regular motorcycle that easily counteracts, except that you’ll be able to lean more or less as much as you want, no matter what. Road conditions, with total confidence.
The details about the Niken are scarce at the moment, but it seems that it will work with the super powerful high performance triple line engine, MT09.
How much can the Niken lean before the outside wheel rises from the road? Why do you have double forks on each side? Will the two front wheels be able to lift (makeing a wheelie)? Who knows, but we will have all the details on November 6 at the Milan Motorcycle Show (or EICMA) in Italy.
