Video: Here’s how the Yamaha Niken suspension works

The Yamaha Niken is a love-it-or-loathe-it creation, a hybrid of a dual-wheel front end with a Yamaha MT-09 naked bike. It looks weird, and that extra wheel really turns off some motorcyclists.

But whether or not you like the Niken, you’ve got to admit it’s some cool design work, and it’s even cooler that it’s actually going to come to market. Just before it makes its US debut, Yamaha has released this video that shows the Niken’s engineering in action. Enjoy!
