“2019 Yamaha Niken GT”
An Interestingly Unique Sport Touring Bike
At first glance from a distance, Yamaha’s 2019 Niken GT appears to be two bikes parked extremely close together, which is in reality an optical illusion. Both the Niken and Niken GT are uniquely innovative, in that they have two front wheels. They are not “trikes” despite their two-front-wheel and one rear wheel reverse configuration. They are not at all like the Can AM Spyder, Piaggio scooters or the Slingshot from Polaris. As stated, they are uniquely innovative with some definitely significant advantages. They are genuine Sport Touring motorcycles that are based off the basic architecture of Yamaha’s Tracer 900 GT Sport Tourer, which has but one front wheel.
