So it’s not just going to be the arriving-next-month, MT-09 powered Niken three-wheeler from Yamaha – there’s more tri-fun on the way and that’s been confirmed by Yamaha President and CEO Yoshihiro Hidaka.


Hidaka said: “Our company is working on various initiatives with the theme of the growing world of personal mobility in the current midterm plan. This is a product line up of LMW leaning multi-wheel.

“Since the launch of Tricity commuter in 2014 we continued R&D activities and in the last year’s Tokyo Motor Show we have presented large size sports model Niken, which will be launched in the market this year.

“Not just limited to these two models we will be expanding customer base with new values of LMW.”


The news comes some months after we first told you about Yamaha buying the patents for another leaning multi wheeler, the Brudeli Leanster. You can read our original story HERE.
