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.
