YAMAHA TO LAUNCH THREE-WHEELED “NIKEN” MOTORCYCLE


During this year’s Tokyo Motor Show, Yamaha unveiled a three-wheeled motorcycle dubbed “Niken”. Not much in the way of any further information was given about the new motorcycle except for that it boasts a 900cc three-cylynder engine and measures 7 feet in length and 3 feet across.

Why This Matters: The aforementioned “Niken” and the recently unveiled “Motoroid” are part of  Yamaha’s Tokyo Motor Show series in which Yamaha will unveil 20 different concepts during the course of the Motor Show.

What Yamaha is Saying: In regards to explaining the addition of the second front wheel, Yamaha shares that the feeling is, “a high feeling of stability when cornering.”
