What may look like a concept bike is actually a production model that Yamaha is launching in the summer of 2018. The new bike, dubbed the Niken, is sort of based off their popular FZ-09. It uses the three cylinder engine, with a revised frame and of course two wheels up front. Now this bike is unlike some sort of reverse trike, as it won't actually stay upright without a kick stand. It will lean over quit far and is supposed to offer a sporty feel...not some sort of over the top scooter. We should see these bikes hit production mid-next year.
