2019 Yamaha NIKEN First Ride Review! – On Two Wheels

What has three cylinders, three wheels, and does wheelies? Yamaha’s Niken, of course! This new three wheeler is powered by an MT-09 engine but has a funky front end that puts two 15-inch wheels on the ground. Who is it for, how does it work, and what’s it like to ride? We answer these questions and more in this episode of OTW.

BMR Studio says:

Interesting piece of iron, but… Last time when I ride a 3 wheeler…. I was 4 year old. And this will stay like this! When I was 20, most of the time I rolled on 1 (rear) wheel. When I was 25, again 1 (front) wheel…. Now, I get back to 2 wheels 🙂

Why can’t they put the same kind of design in the rear as well. So it is basically a quad bike that leans. Now that would be cool
