YAMAHA NIKEN UNVEILED | EICMA 2018

YAMAHA NIKEN UNVEILED | EICMA 2018It was a surprise when we first saw the Yamaha Niken three-wheeled motorcycle last year at EICMA. It was something out of action movie fantasy. However this year, the new Yamaha Niken GT that’s been unveiled at the 2018 EICMA in Milan, Italy has definitely gotten more comfortable and suitable for longer commutes. The new Niken gets 25-litre panniers which also feature grab handles for the rear passengers and has a 12-volt outlet to charge a smartphone or any other gadget. The 2019 Niken GT also gets a centre stand unlike the standard Niken. Moreover, it gets a taller windscreen, wider seats and heated handle bar grips.

YAMAHA NIKEN UNVEILED | EICMA 2018The 2019 Niken is also based on the Yamaha MT-09 and has two 15-inch wheels with modified cycle parts which help it lean at corners. The wheels are connected to the frame with two separate pairs of inverted forks which allow the Niken GT to lean through corners just like a regular two-wheeler. It is powered by the same 847cc in-line three-cylinder engine which is seen in the MT-09. The engine develops 114 bhp at 10,000 rpm and 87.5 Nm of peak torque at 8500 rpm. The 2019 Yamaha Niken GT is equipped with a standard slip and assist clutch, quickshifter and three-mode traction control. It also gets cruise control which is effective from fourth gear and over the speed of 50 kmph.

YAMAHA NIKEN UNVEILED | EICMA 2018The Yamaha Niken is already on sale in some of the international markets like the UK and US for $ 15,999. However, the company as of now is producing the Niken in limited numbers and has similar plans even for the 2019 Niken GT.
