I've been curious about the Niken since I first saw it about a year ago. I understand what Yamaha was trying to accomplish with the three wheeled contrivance, but in my own mind, I can't believe many people are going to be ready to cough up about twice what an FZ09 goes for in order to get better traction on the front end. Plus it sure adds a lot of complexity to an already really good bike. I'd like to know how many Yamaha plans to sell as I see you can't just pull into a dealer and get one off the showroom floor. It might be the Edsel of Yamaha motors.
