MCN overall review verdict: Pilot a Niken and you’re a celebrity with a ready-made audience. Everywhere people look at you. Kids wave, cyclists nod, pedestrians smile. It can’t help but brighten your day. Non-bikers love it, but strangely, the Austrian bikers we met on the bike’s launch didn’t seem to want to know. Few bikes have split opinion as much. First unveiled at the end of last year to a combination of fascination and incredulity, Yamaha’s LMW (Leaning Multi Wheeler) wasn’t, as some thought, for disabled riders (it’ll fall over when its stationary, just like any other bike) or an easy way for car drivers to become bikers (its track is too narrow to be ridden on a car licence). Instead, it was all about trying to enhance riding pleasure. Yamaha’s engineers wanted to come up with a bike that gave more front-end confidence and allowed more people to exploit it. Their reckoning was that losing the front was a biker’s biggest fear – and the way to allay those fears was to increase grip.
