The Freakish 3-Wheel Yamaha Niken Sportbike Looks Unbelievable

  The Freakish 3-Wheel Yamaha Niken Sportbike Looks Unbelievable Yamaha brought something interesting for the Tokyo Motor Show, and it’s a bizarro three-wheeler sportbike. Surely it’s too early for it to be some sort of elaborate April Fool’s joke, right? The bike is called the Yamaha Niken, and it looks like it has a conventional rear end and Yamaha’s liquid-cooled inline three-cylinder engine. But from there it sprouts two sets of forks and two wheels, giving it the look of some kind future chariot.Yamaha says the benefit of the Leaning Multi-Wheeler is that it “reduces the effects of changing ride environments and to deliver a high feeling of stability when cornering.

One solution for tall riders is to get the handlebars up a little higher. For the Tiger Project , I opted for a set of two-inch Rox Risers so I would not have to worry about replacing all my stock clutch, brake, and electronics cables.

Adventure motorcycles make for excellent touring bikes, but they are designed to tackle off-road sections when the pavement ends. Depending on your physical stature, you may need to make ergonomic changes to the bike to better suit challenging terrain. One solution for tall riders is to get the handlebars up a little higher. Risers can encourage better riding posture when standing up on the foot pegs, alleviate back pain, and enable more leverage and control over the bike.

There are numerous handlebar riser options but one versatile option which utilizes the stock handlebar clamps are Rox Risers. Machined from aluminum, the Rox Risers are adjustable for rise and pull back depending on the riding style you engage in the most. Pull the controls back for a more relaxed riding position. Raise them up for more leverage and control when standing. Perfection.

Tall riders have a particularly hard time of it – after all, it’s not like there’s a chain of “Big & Tall ” motorcycle dealerships around the country. Sport bikes don’t work well for tall people , period. They are modeled after racing bikes which are ridden by racers who tend to be smaller folk.

For the Tiger Project, I opted for a set of two-inch Rox Risers so I would not have to worry about replacing all my stock clutch, brake, and electronics cables. I was confident that a two-inch rise would be more than adequate for my style of riding.

Installation required removing the bolts and top clamp that hold the handlebar. Be sure to lay down a couple towels to protect your bike and simply rest the handlebars and controls between the triple tree and the windscreen.

I have even seen people in garages attach bungee cords to the ceiling and suspend the handlebars above the bike. Once the handlebars are removed the Rox Risers install into the original clamps. Tightening down the original clamp with the risers in place take some finessing, but it’s doable.

A little bit goes a long way after taking about 25 minutes to install and riding around the block a couple times. The bars being up two additional inches is far more comfortable to ride, especially when in a standing position.

If Rox Risers sound like an add-on you would like on your adventure bike, you can purchase them here for about $87. Be sure to check the diameter of your handlebars to ensure a proper fitment.

It was just updated in 2016, but you won't hear any complaints from us.We get a good enough look at the bikes to see that they’re clearly Speed Triples thanks to the distinct bi-headlight face and overall shape.
