For 2019 Yamaha realised that the benefits of the three wheeled NIKEN actually made it a pretty good sports tourer, rather than the sporty naked bike is was originally marketed as, so they have run with it and added what it needed to pull off that role.
Specifically you get the 25 litre panniers, comfort seat, tall screen, heated grips, centre stand and extra 12V socket - basically all the accessories available for the original NIKEN.
Yamaha reckon the benefits of the extra wheel include almost double the front grip, enabling you to carve a tighter line through corners with a 45° maximum lean angle, twice the contact area with the road when braking and like the Tricity more all round stability at low speeds. The design is actually really clever because it keeps the front wheels the same distance apart even while leaning in corners.
Crucially, in the UK at least, the distance between the front wheels is 410mm so it's a proper bike and not something you can hop onto with a car licence like the Piaggio MP3. The 10-spoke 15" front wheels take Bridgestone Battlax 120/70 tyres and the rear 17" a 190/55.
Accessories include the Akrapovic full Titanium exhaust (£1,225), sports seat (£243), hand guards (£153) and lots of billet parts.
