UPDATE: Here’s the review!


At the Long Beach International Motorcycle Show, Yamaha unveiled a variant of the crazy Niken LMW (Leaning Multi-Wheeler). Called the Niken GT, it’s got a center stand, upgraded front suspension, heated grips, and other touring features like a larger windscreen, comfort seat, two power outlets, and 25L saddlebags. I’m excited because it’s so different, but I genuinely have no idea what to expect. This week, I’ll get my chance to ride the Niken GT- what would you like to know about it?

This is what Yamaha showed at Long Beach – standard on the left, GT on the right. The standard has already sold out of its US production run (the rumor I heard was less than 100 units).

Yamaha will allow customers to transfer deposits to the GT model.
