For the 2019 Yamaha Niken Motorcycle, the Japanese automaker is doing the motorcycle equivalent to what Gillette did to all their two-blade razors back in the early 2000s. They are adding the third blade! But in this the blade is another wheel. Unlike other three wheelers on the market, Yamaha is putting the third wheel on the front. THE FRONT!
Yamaha recently unveiled this next-level bike at the Milan Motorcycle Show and it will be available for purchase in the second half of 2018. Seriously, this isn’t a concept motorcycle. You can acutally own this!
