Yamaha Niken demo tour hits Matlock this weekend

Fancy a go on the high-tech sporty three-wheeler? Get thee to Matlock Bath this weekend...

Yamaha Niken

OF ALL the rare beasties out there just now, Yamaha's Niken leaning three-wheeler is up there with Nessie and the Yeti. In fact, there are only 16 of the buggers in the whole of Europe right now, all of which are on the Yamaha Niken Demo Tour roadshow. The show was in Edinburgh last weekend, with some success, and is at Matlock this weekend.

We were impressed with how the Niken works on the launch - the front end is a marvel of tech, and works really well. It adds a bit of weight over a stock MT-09 obviously, but there's a real natural feeling from the front - as well as stacks of grip.

You really need to try it yourself though we think. Matlock could well be one of the quieter dates (they're at Box Hill in a fortnight which should be well busy), so could be the place to guarantee a try out.

The show kicks off at Station Yard, Matlock on July 28th and 29th. There's a 30 minute presentation and a 50 minute ride, but you need to pre-register for the event. Head to the website here for more info.

Let us know what you think to it if you go along!
