    NIKEN

    With the NIKEN, Yamaha opens up the possibility of a whole new era in motorcycling, a riding revolution - offering a sensation that is unique. Imagine the ability to carve through winding roads with unmatched confidence...a new feeling that could be compared to the thrilling experience when carving turns with skis.

    This revolutionary new kind of motorcycle feels, handles and looks like nothing else. At the same time as being different to a motorcycle, the NIKEN's handling characteristics are also reassuringly familiar to riders.

    The advanced Yamaha-exclusive technology used in the double leaning front wheel layout offers high levels of traction - making it a strong performer in corners and giving the NIKEN rider the ability to carve through winding roads with unmatched confidence. And two front wheels means there are two front tyres and two sets of front brakes, so the levels of traction and braking are also like nothing else on the road!
