Model Description

Very Good Condition; Low Miles We offer great finance options (subject to T&Cs). Simply reserve by phone or view in store. We are a family run Premier Yamaha dealership established in 1959. We pride ourselves on providing a quality and friendly service.Pilot a Niken and you’re a celebrity with a ready-made audience. Everywhere people look at you. Kids wave, cyclists nod, pedestrians smile. It can’t help but brighten your day.Initially Yamaha’s LMW (Leaning Multi Wheeler) was received with a combination of fascination and incredulity.Yamaha’s engineers wanted to come up with a bike that gave more front-end confidence and allowed more people to exploit it. Their reckoning was that losing the front was a biker’s biggest fear – and the way to allay those fears was to increase grip.The key to the Niken is the front parallelogram system that mounts to the pair of fork units. This allows it to pretend it’s a ‘normal’ motorbike and gives 45 degrees of lean.Once you’re rolling, only subtle clues let you know the bike has two front wheels.Each time you turn the bars you alter the trajectory of two spinning wheels, plus what must be a good few kilos of castings, bearings, linkages and rose joints that all pivot on the Niken’s cast headstock.Flowing from one corner to the next on your favourite, the Niken feels great – and you get so much joy from hustling such a bizzare machine.The gyroscopic effect of those two spinning 15-inch wheels imbue it with peerless stability. On roads that don’t require sudden direction changes there’s a neutrality and accuracy that has to be experienced to be believed. At high speed it shrugs off mid-corner bumps better than most bikes, doesn’t get upset by camber changes and doesn’t tramline over ruts.The Niken is simply peerless and in a category all of its own.
