Conquer Road

Yamaha is a company that thrives on creativity, always looking toward the future in the quest to develop original, exciting technology and radical new concepts. The launch of the NIKEN GT, with its innovative Leaning Multi-Wheel technology, demonstrates the company’s commitment to innovation. It’s another example of how Yamaha “Revs Your Heart” with its exciting and diverse range of models.

/// RIDE THE REVOLUTION

 /// LEANING MULTI-WHEEL TECHNOLOGY

    Equipped with innovative Leaning Multi-Wheel technology and dual inverted forks, the NIKEN GT is built to deliver the most amazing corner carving experience together with higher rider confidence in all conditions. With a larger contact patch between the tires and the road surface, the two leaning front wheels give increased levels of front end grip that is particularly noticeable during cornering and braking, and it is this unique and dynamic characteristic of the NIKEN that makes it feel and handle like no other motorcycle.

///  BOLD, FUTURISTIC DESIGN

    The NIKEN GT’s muscular and athletic body design clearly shows that this innovative new three-wheel Yamaha is designed for energetic riding. The twin front wheels form the focal point from which the futuristic cowl and integrated fuel tank flow, giving a unique, mass-forward look that emphasizes NIKEN GT’s bold and unique profile.

KEY FEATURES

    • Benefit is a wide torque curve and exciting intake sound that accentuates the exhaust note
    • Viscous paper-type air filter is used
  • Compact 6-speed transmission.
    • Gear ratios are optimized to accentuate the torque and throttle response of the engine
  • Compact, slipper(back-limiter) clutch with assist.
    • Slipper clutch reduces the negative effects of engine braking on handling and suspension
    • Reduces rear wheel hop/ chatter when decelerating for improved riding performance and smoother corner entries
    • Assist function reduces clutch lever effort by up to 20%
  • Quick Shift System (QSS)
