Yamaha is set to put the Niken to a proper test as the Japanese motorcycle maker will compete at the 2022 Italian Hill Climb Championship.

  • The race-prepped Niken is set to take on the hills in Italy.
  • Four-time Italian Superbike vice-champion Luca Salvadori to pilot the Niken at Spoleto round.

Despite looking reluctant to update the three-wheeled Niken with the latest 890cc CP3 engine introduced on the new MT-09, Tracer 9 GT, and XSR900, Yamaha is determined that a tilting trike is relevant to compete at an international level moreover a hill climb event.

Moreover, Yamaha is confident that the company’s Leaning Multi-Wheel (LMW) technology yields an extra grip while at lean and under braking, making it the perfect weapon to take on corners at the championship.

Thanks to the Niken’s doubled inverted forks, Ackermann dual-axle steering mechanism, and cantilever suspension system; the motorcycle can achieve a 45-degree lean angle.

Nevertheless, Yamaha will equip the Niken with Genuine Yamaha Technology Racing (GYTR) accessories to enhance the motorcycle’s performance.


Meanwhile, four-time Italian Superbike vice-champion Luca Salvadori will take the race-prepped Niken in the Spoleto round on July 17.

  • Paten baru telah muncul menunjukkan rupa terbaru rekaan motosikal beroda tiga dari Yamaha yang diberi nama Yamaha MWT-9.
  • Konsep motosikal beroda tiga ini mula diperkenalkan pada tahun 2015 semasa Pertunjukan Motor Tokyo dan paten terkini mempamerkan versi motosikal ‘naked’ berbanding rekaan asalnya.
  • Yamaha telah pun dalam usaha membangunkan MWT-9 dengan rancangan untuk pengeluaran pada suatu hari nanti.


New patents have surfaced showing the latest rendition of the amazing three-wheeled motorcycle from Yamaha dubbed the Yamaha MWT-9.

The concept three-wheeler was introduced back in 2015 during the Tokyo Motor Show and the latest patent shows a naked version compared to the original half fairing design.

Yamaha has been developing the MWT-9 with plans that one day, it’ll go into production.

Ever since news broke out that Yamaha came up with the Yamaha MWT-9 Concept back in 2015 during the annual Tokyo Motor Show, they have been getting mixed feelings about the possibility of the three-wheeled Yamaha being put into production. To us, it is still however an intriguing idea and based on the video seen below, the Yamaha MWT-9 definitely gets the two thumbs from us here at Bikes Republic. (more…)

Leaked patent indicates that the Honda Neowing concept leaning three-wheeler is bound for production very soon.


Sources report that the Yamaha MWT-9 concept three-wheeler will head for production within a year or two. (more…)

NASCAR-inspired Can-Am Spyder F3 Turbo concept revealed in Daytona International Speedway. (more…)

Meet the Yamaha LMW – MWT – 9 concept, or just the Yamaha MWT-9 concept in short. Unveiled at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, the concept shows off how the successful Yamaha MT-09 naked would look like if it were to become a leaning-multi-wheel (LMW) or trike.


A closer inspection reveals that this is not just merely an oversized rendition of the Yamaha Tricity three-wheeled scooter revealed not too long ago. Underneath, the concept carries over much of the MT-09 naked’s mechanicals from the tank forwards, including the 847cc triple-cylinder engine.


Besides a radical new face, Yamaha has indeed taken the Tricity’s intricate front suspension, but the layout has been altered in the MWT-9 whereby the forks now stand on the outside of the wheels instead, presumably for greater stability and rigidity through turns. Crucially though, this setup varies drastically against that found in the Piaggio MP3 three-wheeled maxi scooter.

It goes without saying that we are fully behind the idea of putting such a beastly-looking thing into production. Well, what are you waiting for Yamaha?
