Yamaha Niken video review. Spyder alternative?

The link below is to a good video review of the new Niken from Yamaha.  While it IS a three wheeled vehicle with two wheels up front, it’s really NOT a direct competitor to a Spyder.  After all, you do have to put your feet down at a stop, and use a kickstand.  It looks like a fun vehicle, but more of a tech marvel than a stable trike.

  1. The Niken is a performance oriented machine. The print article from the same source says that in Europe is considered a motorcycle as the wheels are too close together to be a trike.
    It is not an alternative to a Spyder and shouldn’t be considered as such.
    And it was never intended to be a competitor to the Spyder. It’s aimed at a younger buyer.
