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.



 Open the roads of life with the 2019 NIKEN GT, blending exclusive leaning multi-wheel technology with luxuries for the long haul.


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.


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.


The NIKEN GT utilizes a specially-developed version of Yamaha's popular 847 cc, crossplane-concept, three-cylinder CP3 engine, offering plenty of power and rich torque. Other sport-minded features such as adjustable front and rear suspension and twin, 298 mm front disc brakes are blended on the NIKEN GT with perks like standard side cases, heated grips, a tall windscreen and a touring seat.
