A whole load of updates for the funky tourer
Yamaha’s Niken GT is being treated to some serious updates for 2023, including a new 890cc engine.
The engine is a variation of the tried-and-tested design used in the massively popular Tracer 9 and MT-09, and it’ll have 5% more capacity than the outgoing motor. There’s more clever stuff going on, including some redesigned intakes and a new exhaust. And to cope with the power gains, there’s a new slipper clutch and up-and-down quickshifter, while the bike’s rider modes and traction control settings have also been tweaked.

There’s also a new fly-by-wire throttle; cruise control; a new lighter, aluminium rear shock linkage; a new Garmin navigation-compatible 7-inch TFT display; redesigned handlebar switches; a USB-A outlet (with a 12V outlet under the seat); in addition to a newly-designed seat and a new adjustable screen. It’s a serious set of upgrades for the unconventional tourer, but we’ll have to wait a little bit longer to find out how much it’ll cost and when it’ll be available.
