Fully-equipped all weather Sport Tourer

The NIKEN GT’s touring specification includes a high screen, side cases and a rear carrier base with passenger grips – together with heated grips and a comfort seat, as well as a main centre stand and extra 12V DC outlet. With its high levels of comfort and functionality, this radical 3-wheel Sport Tourer motorcycle is built for year round enjoyment, whatever the weather!

847cc CP3 engine

The 847cc 3-cylinder engine that drives the NIKEN GT has been specially developed from the outstandingly successful powerplant used in the best selling MT-09, as well as the Tracer 900 and XSR900. To suit the unique requirements of the NIKEN GT, this torque-rich crossplane philosophy engine is equipped with special fuel injection settings that are designed to enhance this radical new motorcycle's performance in the environment that it loves: twisty mountain roads. There's also a newly designed crank that gives excellent drivability and smoother starts. NIKEN GT riders also benefit from the latest electronic control technology including YCC-T, D-MODE, Cruise Control and a Traction Control System, as well as an A&S clutch and Quick Shift System that gives a high degree of controllability and fun riding in varying riding conditions.

Bold and futuristic design

The NIKEN GT's muscular and athletic body design clearly shows that this innovative new 3-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 emphasises NIKEN GT's bold and unique profile. Yamaha's designers have sought to highlight the distinctive technology used in the LMW system, and rather than being hidden away, the structure and workings of the Yamaha-exclusive mechanisms are there for all to see. From the rider's viewpoint the NIKEN GT has a rugged wide-shouldered appearance that contrasts with the slim fuel tank, giving a unique riding style unlike any other motorcycle. The upward curving main seat features a wide, flat design with excellent rear support that gives high levels of comfort.

Hybrid steel and aluminium frame

The NIKEN GT is designed to master a wide range of riding situations, and so in order to achieve high levels of straight-line stability together with sporty cornering performance, a new kind of hybrid frame has been especially developed. The head pipe area is manufactured from cast steel, while the swingarm pivot area is cast aluminium, and the main frame connecting these two assemblies is made from steel tube. By delivering the required levels of strength, rigidity and flexibility precisely where they are needed, this hybrid design enhances the planted and natural feel of the leaning double wheel front end, and ensures sport bike agility together with excellent handling performance.

Double external upside-down front forks

In order to achieve sport bike handling capabilities, the NIKEN GT's maximum lean angle extends to 45 degrees, and this has been made possible by the use of the Ackermann dual axle steering mechanism, together with a cantilevered suspension system mounted to the outside of the wheels. The double "external" upside-down front forks are equipped with rebound and compression damping adjusters that enable the rider to dial in their ideal suspension set up, and the relatively narrow 410mm track contributes towards the NIKEN GT's natural steering feel - as well as keeping overall width to a minimum.
