Tokyo Motor Show 2017 : Yamaha Niken Leaning Three-Wheeler Revealed (Price & Specifications)

               The Yamaha Niken is based on the MT-09, and shares the same three-cylinder motor, but it’s the first leaning production three-wheeled motorcycle of its type. Yamaha has not revealed too many details and specifications at Tokyo about the Niken, and more details are expected to be released at next month’s EICMA show in Milan, Italy. The only specification released so far is that the Niken uses a liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, four-stroke, DOHC, four-valve, in-line triple engine. The three-cylinder engine without question is the 847 cc triple from the Yamaha MT-09.


             In a press release on the Niken, Yamaha said: “This large-displacement Leaning Multi-Wheeler (LMW) is powered by a liquid-cooled, in-line, three-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 excellent performance for spirited and sporty riding on various road surfaces and the capability to freely carve through the continuous corners on winding roads. The 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. New Yamaha NIKEN. Ride the Revolution.”
