Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > Niken GT
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
This is the touring version of Yamaha's infamous leaning three-wheeler. It's based on the MT-09 naked bike, but with an extra wheel up front that provides more grip. The Niken GT won't stand on its own; you need to deploy the kickstand when you stop. But it's a very interesting take on the future of motorcycles, even if it does cause divisive opinions.
