Tokyo [Japan], Sept 21: Leading motorcycle maker Yamaha unveiled its new tricycle motorbike, 'Niken', earlier this week.

Mr. Yoshihiro Hidaka, President and CEO of Yamaha Motor, introduced it as "the expanding world of mobility" concept of Yamaha at the event.

Listing it as one of the four growth strategies in their mid-term plan, Hidaka outlined that 'Niken' is born out of an "effort to propose mobility with unprecedented value".

Equipped with LMW (Leaning Multi-Wheeler) technology to reduce effects of changing riding environments, 'Niken' delivers a high feeling of stability when cornering, according to the CEO.

"Until now, some people felt that it was difficult to ride a big motorcycle because of its weight and hence required physical strength. But riding a "NIKEN" brings a sense of stability and makes the 'bike life' enjoyable again", says Naoki Hanamura of YamahaMotors.

The new technology brings innovation in the field of mobility and is cultivated by a company known for its performance.

Bengaluru, Aug 19: Former Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy on Monday said he was not afraid of any probe into the phone tapping allegations, as he accused the BJP government of running a "transfer business" in the State.

The JDS leader's statement triggered a war of words with chief minister B Yeddiyurappa's son B Y Vijayendra saying it was not appropriate to make "baseless allegations."

Yediyurappa, however, said he was not going to react to the charges.

"Why do you want to put words in my mouth? May God bless him. The whole world knows what he has done..," he told reporters.

It all started with Kumaraswamy's purported statement on Sunday that Yediyurappa had left his sons to run the 'transfer businesses' as reported by some news channels.

Taking a serious note of it, Vijayendra tweeted the clipping of Kumaraswamy's statement as it appeared in a Kannada news channel, which read that Yediyurappa has "let his son loose to run the transfer business."

"...You cannot pass the buck on somebody else for your deeds. Stop trying to mislead the people through falsehood just because you are scared of the CBI probe into the telephone tapping case," he said.

Vijayendra also tweeted links to news reports that claimed the then PWD minister H D Revanna had transferred 700 officials on a single day last year when Kumaraswamy was the chief minister.

Later, speaking to reporters in Bengaluru, Vijayendra slammed Kumaraswamy for making "baseless allegations" against him and his family.

"It is not appropriate to make baseless allegations against me and our family. It does not befit his stature," Vijayendra said.

He challenged Kumaraswamy to make the facts public if he has evidence to back his claim.

"People have seen how during your tenure governance had collapsed due to the involvement of your family. People of the state have seen how 700 staff in the PWD were given promotion and transferred," Vijayendra said.

Reacting, Kumarasawmy cautioned chief minister Yediyurappa to keep his children "within their limits."

He alleged that the chief ministers residence has turned into a "transfer market" these days.

Speaking about the governments intention to conduct a CBI probe into the alleged phone tapping, Kumaraswamy said he was not scared of any probe because he did not do anything wrong.

However, he asked the chief minister not to fix innocent people only to take revenge on him.

Days after phone tapping allegations during the previous Congress-JDS coalition government surfaced, Yediyurappa on Sunday said he will order a CBI probe citing demands by several political leaders including from the Congress.
