Yamaha unveiled its 2018 Niken during the 45th annual Tokyo Motor Show. The Niken is a large-displacement Leaning Multi-Wheeler (LMW) powered by a liquid-cooled, in-line, 3-cylinder engine.
This model is equipped with LMW technology to reduce the effects of changing ride environments and to deliver a high feeling of stability when cornering. It achieves heightened performance for spirited and sporty riding on various road surfaces and the capability to freely carve through the continuous corners on winding roads.
The Niken's body design makes full use of the unprecedented front-end suspension mechanism, pairing 15-inch front wheels with dual-tube upside-down forks that visually accentuate the machine's sporty performance and create a high-quality look and feel at the same time.
