NIKEN GT

Yamaha’s ground-breaking Leaning Multi Wheel (LMW) technology can now be ridden closer to the horizon thanks to the increased levels of comfort and functionality delivered by the Niken GT, via a high touring screen, heated grips and comfort seat. Semi-soft 25-litre panniers provide storage space for the long road ahead, and cruise control lets you relax and enjoy the scenery.

Torque-rich CP3 847cc three-cylinder engine, developed specifically for the Niken GT, features fuel injection settings that provide a strong mid-range surge of power. Confidence-inspiring front-end grip is provided from the twin front wheels, giving outstanding handling and the ability to carve through the most challenging corners.

The Niken GT strikes the perfect balance of sportsbike agility, long-range touring comfort and confidence-inspiring handling.

Renewed 847cc CP3 engine

The 847cc 3-cylinder engine that drives the new NIKEN has been specially developed from the outstandingly successful powerplant used in the best selling MT-09, as well as the Tracer 900 and XSR900. To suit the unique requirements of the NIKEN, this torque-rich crossplane philosophy engine is equipped with special fuel injection settings that are designed to enhance this radical new motorcycle’s performance in the environment that it loves: twisty mountain roads. There’s also a newly designed crank that gives excellent drivability and smoother starts. NIKEN riders also benefit from the latest electronic control technology including YCC-T, D-MODE, Cruise Control and a Traction Control System, as well as an Assist and Slipper clutch and Quick Shift System that gives a high degree of controllability and fun riding in varying riding conditions.

 

Hybrid steel and aluminium frame

The NIKEN is designed to master a wide range of riding situations, and so in order to achieve high levels of straight-line stability together with sporty cornering performance, a new kind of hybrid frame has been especially developed. The head pipe area is manufactured from cast steel, while the swingarm pivot area is cast aluminium, and the main frame connecting these two assemblies is made from steel tube. By delivering the required levels of strength, rigidity and flexibility precisely where they are needed, this hybrid design enhances the planted and natural feel of the leaning double wheel front end, and ensures sport bike agility together with excellent handling performance.

 

Sporty and lightweight cowl with dual LED headlights

The sporty front face features lightweight dual LED headlights housed in a downward curving aerodynamic cowl that looks like nothing else on the street, and the dual position lights serve to emphasise the strong and planted look of the double front wheels. The broad nose cowl and high screen give the NIKEN GT rider good protection from the elements, and together with the natural riding position, this advanced LMW is ready for everything from thrilling corner carving through to sport touring over the weekend. YZF-R1 derived mirrors feature integrated LED turn signals, and are designed to give a clear rear view even when the riding position changes. In contrast to the broad-shouldered front end, the slim and upswept tail and separate license plate holder convey a feeling of agility, underlining the NIKEN’s revolutionary style.

 

Double external upside-down front forks

In order to achieve sport bike handling capabilities, the NIKEN’s maximum lean angle extends to 45 degrees, and this has been made possible by the use of the Ackermann dual axle steering mechanism, together with a cantilevered suspension system mounted to the outside of the wheels. The double “external” upside-down front forks are equipped with rebound and compression damping adjusters that enable the rider to dial in their ideal suspension set up, and the relatively narrow 410mm track contributes towards the NIKEN’s natural steering feel – as well as keeping overall width to a minimum.

 

Fully-equipped all weather Sport Tourer

The NIKEN GT’s touring specification includes a high screen, side cases and a rear carrier base with passenger grips – together with heated grips and a comfort seat, as well as a main centre stand and extra 12V DC outlet. With its high levels of comfort and functionality, this radical 3-wheel Sport Tourer motorcycle is built for year round enjoyment, whatever the weather!

 

Compact instrument panel with LCD display

As a NIKEN GT rider you’ll enjoy a unique view ahead. The broad shoulders of the front cowl enhance the overall feelings of confidence and stability, and the futuristic look is completed by the compact instruments that feature a white LCD display on a black background for easy day time visibility.
