The review of 2019 Niken Super Tourer with its price and specification is written below.
Yamaha 2019 Niken Super Tourer – Features and Price
The Main Function
The NIKEN LMW chassis is a proprietary motorcycle control system that provides riders with unparalleled confidence in various road conditions. By tilting the two front tires in unison, NIKEN doubles the available grip. It provides excellent braking power, cornering confidence, driver comfort, and impeccable driving habits while maintaining a natural steering feel.
The advanced CP3 in-line three-cylinder motor is derived from the award-winning MT-09. It uses Yamaha’s full set of performance technologies to produce superior torque through linear power output. It results in a flexible, fast-response power unit that combines the best aspects of 2-cylinder and 4-cylinder motors plus it maintains the characteristics of lightness, slimness, and compactness.
Yamaha 2019 Niken Super Tourer has a comprehensive range of technologies to enhance the rider’s confidence and performance. It includes Yamaha’s in-line throttle system, adjustable throttle mapping, traction control, and ABS. Drivers can also enjoy the convenience of factory quick shifters and integrated cruise control systems.
NIKEN is derived from the award-winning MT-09, which has a thrilling 847cc liquid-cooled inline three-cylinder motor and a series of advanced technologies. With the DOHC cylinder head, super-large 78mm x 59.1mm inner diameter and stroke, and 11.5:1 compression ratio, NIKEN has exciting torque characteristics. Yamaha 2019 Niken Super Tourer has been improved with additional crankshaft inertia to achieve a smooth start.
By taking advantage of the naturally smooth ignition sequence and power characteristics of the three-cylinder engine. Yamaha’s CP3 engine produces exceptionally high linear torque and has an excellent connection between the throttle handle and the driver. To improve refinement and improve passenger and passenger comfort. The motor is equipped with a gear balancer to minimize engine vibration. It results in a responsive power unit that combines the best aspects of 2-cylinder and 4-cylinder motors while still being lightweight, slim, and compact.
The CP3 engine uses a forged “fracture-splitting” connecting rod whose large end ring is split in two to form a more precise mating surface when they have tightened again on the crankshaft. The cylinder block is offset towards its front wheel to reduce the piston force against the cylinder wall, thereby improving efficiency. The cylinder bore is plated with ceramic composite material, which has excellent durability and heat transfer performance.
To provide a better torque distribution and an intake sound, the length of the airbag intake funnel is designed to be three uneven lengths. It is combined with the fuel injection system and cylinder head design to provide high torque and flexible engine characteristics. Yamaha’s auxiliary and sliding clutches allow riders to downshift with confidence and confidently when entering corners, and to lighten the joystick during daily riding. It can also quickly respond to the torque of NIKEN’s high-output motor.
The gearbox utilizes the low to medium torque and excellent response characteristics of the inline three-cylinder engine to provide the rider with the ideal transmission ratio for any type of riding. The 6-speed gearbox also has staggered input and output shafts in a triangular layout. These shafts reduce the overall engine size and further concentrate mass.
NIKEN utilizes a compact three-in-one exhaust system and a center muffler. Not only does this layout focus on quality, and it allows for more transparent processing. The header also has SixONy, a wear-resistant ceramic nano-film coating that looks great while resisting waste heat and elements. NIKEN has a short, obliquely cut exhaust port, and also has a sweet 3-cylinder exhaust sound.
Chassis / Suspension
Yamaha’s advanced LMW (Tilt Multi-Wheel) chassis is the result of countless hours of engineering and testing. It is designed to create a unique motorcycle control system that can provide riders with unparalleled confidence regardless of the road conditions. By tilting the two front tires in unison, NIKEN doubles the available grip. It provides excellent braking power, cornering confidence, and rider comfort, especially in rough and rough road conditions.
NIKEN’s aggressive front end uses a pair of fork tubes for each front wheel and steering linkage to provide the ideal steering geometry and natural steering feel. The system rotates and tilts like a traditional motorcycle, but the front tire grip is twice that of the former. And, like other Yamaha sports motorcycles, the system can provide adjustable compression and rebound damping to achieve a height-adjustable ride experience.
The front-wheel track is only 16.1 inches, which makes NIKEN no wider than traditional motorcycles, and is very suitable for crowded urban riding conditions. The maximum tilt angle is 45 degrees. With the help of the driver, NIKEN can provide an ideal 50/50 weight distribution to achieve neutral control. Seat design, fuel tank width, and some other dimensions can all be used in conjunction with the mass of the compact 3-cylinder engine. The engine helps to achieve sport handling characteristics, upright seating positions, and a narrow body at the seat/fuel tank junction.
Yamaha 2019 Niken Super Tourer uses paired 15-inch lightweight alloy wheels and LMW-specific 120/70R15 tires. These tires are co-developed with the chassis and have a sports motorcycle-style silhouette and structure that can achieve high grip, wear resistance, and wet road performance. The rear wheels are fitted with large 190/55R17 rear tires to combine fashion and traction.
Yamaha 2019 Niken Super Tourer highlights the unique LMW system and the new riding experience, showing a healthy muscle appearance, unlike anything else on the road today. The front suspension system is proudly displayed, while the body is bent into a graceful and smooth tail. The dual LED headlights emit a sharp glare on the road ahead, but the style and function match, exuding bright lighting and comprehensive vision. Position lighting, turn signals, and brake lights mounted on the mirror also use LED technology to achieve impressive, long-lasting performance and modern style.
The NIKEN fuel tank is beautifully curved to provide a narrow middle section and uses the same light alloy as in the YZF-R1 and R6 fuel tanks to reduce weight. Choose paint and surface treatment to highlight the technical characteristics and long-term durability of the LMW chassis.
With an upright ergonomic design and a slightly forward-looking figure, NIKEN riders are ready to attack corners or sail on highways with the same comfort. The tapered aluminum handlebars, seat and foot pedal positions, and narrow central area create an excellent rider feel. The large plush saddle also improves the comfort of riders and passengers.
The wire-controlled Yamaha chip-controlled throttle (YCC-T) system senses the rider’s minimum throttle input and relays the data to the ECU. The ECU immediately calculates the ideal throttle opening based on the engine speed and throttle opening. A command is sent to a servo motor actuator that moves the throttle valve to control the intake airflow actively. This technology can improve the torque and controllability of the three-cylinder engine.
NIKEN has Yamaha’s D-Mode system so that riders can choose the best engine characteristics according to their riding conditions and preferences. The rider can select from three throttle control maps (standard mode, “A” Mode, and “B” mode) with the push of a button to achieve different throttle response characteristics.
The traction control system TCS; helps riders manage traction under various road conditions by quickly adjusting throttle opening, ignition timing, and fuel quantity. NIKEN TCS includes two modes to adapt to different road conditions, and can be disabled if the rider chooses. NIKEN includes a cruise control system driven by YCC-T. Using the left handlebar switch device, rider can easily select or adjust the set speed to reduce the long-distance travel burden on the road, thereby improving the rider’s comfort.
NIKEN is the standard configuration of Yamaha’s Quick Shift System QSS; the system can accelerate the accelerator without using a clutch, thereby achieving smooth and fast gear shifts with minimal travel losses. The high-contrast full LCD clearly shows the engine and driving speed, electronic systems, fuel reserve schedule, economy, etc.
