At a glance
The key to the NIKEN's outstanding sports and touring performance is its high-tech front end. With its dual leaning front wheels, this unique design creates a large contact patch with the road, giving many advantages.
Leaning multi wheel (LMW) technology
The NIKEN's advanced leaning multi wheel (LMW) design delivers an exciting and confident cornering experience. Consisting of parallel quadrilateral arms and cantilevered telescopic suspension, Yamaha's unique Ackermann design gives enhanced feelings of stability and grip when cornering in a wide range of surface conditions.
Bold and futuristic design
With its two leaning front wheels, dual tube upside down forks and broad shouldered stance, the NIKEN projects an imposing and radical look that reflects its revolutionary new riding character. The muscular and athletic body design features a futuristic dual headlight cowl and integrated fuel tank that create a bold and unique profile.
To achieve a natural steering feeling with sport bike agility and confident corner carving performance, a specially developed hybrid frame is used. The cast steel steering head is joined to the cast aluminium swingarm pivot area by steel tubing to give the required levels of strength, rigidity and flexibility precisely where they are needed.
847cc 3-cylinder CP3 engine
The NIKEN's torque-rich 847cc 3-cylinder engine has been developed from the outstandingly successful design used in Yamaha's MT-09 and Tracer 900 models. Special fuel injection settings are used to achieve strong performance in twisty and challenging riding situations - and a special crank design gives excellent driveability and smooth starts.
Sports cowl with dual LED headlights
The broad, downward curving front cowl is equipped with dual LED headlights that underline the NIKEN's sporty and confident character, and the dual position lights help to emphasize the strong and planted look of the dual front wheels. YZF-R1 derived mirrors feature integrated LED turn signals to enhance the bold and futuristic looks.
Deep 45 degree bank angle
The high-tech front end features dual 15-inch wheels with specially developed 120/70R15 tyres that provide high levels of grip for enhanced feelings of confidence when braking and cornering. With a 410mm track, this sophisticated LMW front end design delivers deep banking angles of up to 45 degrees, to give you an unique experience in corner carving.
Advanced electronic control technology
The most revolutionary and futuristic Sport Touring motorcycle comes fully equipped with the very latest electronic control technology - including 3-position D-MODE, YCC-T, Cruise Control and a Traction Control System with two levels of intervention and an off switch. And for seamless performance, the NIKEN features an A&S clutch and QSS.
Compact instrument panel with LCD display
As a NIKEN 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.
Dual tube upside down front forks
The NIKEN's sophisticated front end features dual 15-inch leaning wheels that give enhanced feelings of grip and stability. Dual tube upside down front forks deliver a confident and comfortable ride, while their blue color enhance the bold and futuristic design.
Fully adjustable rear suspension
The NIKEN's rear suspension offers full adjustability for pre-load, compression and rebound damping; enabling you to set it up to suit varying conditions, and for convenience the pre-load can be set without the need for tools.
Dual 298mm front disc brakes
Dual 298mm front discs generate high levels of braking performance, and the increased surface contact area provided by the double front wheels enables the NIKEN to stop quickly and efficiently. With a rear 282mm disc brake, these three large diameter discs work through three wheels, giving you a high degree of control.
Aluminium fuel tank
The NIKEN's beautifully sculpted aluminium fuel tank was created using the same advanced production technology as the YZF-R1. Featuring a smooth, flowing design that blends seamlessly with the wide shouldered cowl, this lightweight 18-litre fuel tank features concave surfaces that give a firm knee grip area and allow your to move freely.
