Yamaha NIKEN has been launched in the UK for £13,499 (Rs 12.34 lakhs approx). Based on the popular MWT-9 concept shown two years back, this amazing trike is certainly the best thing one would have seen at Tokyo Motor Show 2017. Now a reality among other options, NIKEN is certainly exclusive in its own sense.

A unique combination of motorcycling and a third wheel, NIKEN is made to take on tough corners through its leaning multi wheeler approach. For those who still can’t move their eyes off this impressive machine, this one is based on a Yamaha MT-09 and shares its engine with the popular naked machine. Even Indian fans are quite familiar with the moniker that sells for INR 9.55 lakh in the country.

Yamaha NIKEN Front View

One can imagine alien style headlight of MT-09 for slight references when considering design inspirations for the front fascia. It has been pushed into NIKEN but due to the demand of its design, the same looks excessively wide from the front view.

Handling a 15-inch tyre with dual USD fork setup on each side actually needs this much of distance for safety and design purpose. Whenever the rider bends into a corner, one side of this trike bends equally to create a perfect balance for safe riding.

Availability of three tyres enhances high-speed balance and better braking in tough scenarios. The production version comes with dual projectors on each side of the face while concept came with LED lights for this purpose. Yamaha offers the NIKEN with LCD instrument console, fully adjustable suspension, traction control, slipper clutch and cruise control for the best ever user experience.

ABS is standard as rings are visible on all three wheels. It comes with a side stand that hints at lack of any kind of electronic parking brake system. Riding modes on the Yamaha NIKEN further raises excitement as it seems to be the most powerful three-wheeled machine ever.

2018 Yamaha YZF-R125 was recently launched in the UK for £4649 (INR 4,33,500). Not just that, they even launched 2018 MT-125 for £4299 (INR 4,00,900).

Both these bikes are loaded with class leading equipment and thus, riding them would bring true SuperSport and street specific feel into an A1 license holding rider.

Yamaha R125 comes with a single cylinder, 124.7cc engine carrying fuel injection and liquid cooling as standard. The motor is good for 15 HP at 9000 rpm and 12.4 Nm at 8000 rpm. It uses a refined 6-speed gearbox and claims 46.9 kmpl of mileage.

2018 Yamaha YZF-R125

Claimed CO2 emission for Yamaha R125 is just 49 g/km. Deltabox frame serves R125 and thus, one can imagine sharp track specific handling when paired with its USD front forks. They measure 41mm and offer 130mm of wheel travel. Front comes with 100/80 while rear uses 130/70 tyres on 17 inch alloy wheels.

Hydraulic disc for front measures 292mm while rear gets 230mm disc brake for efficient speed cutting on regular roads. It weighs 142 kg and carries 11.5 liter fuel tank. Yamaha MT-125 shares the same platform and thus, brings everything smoothly into a different design.

2018 Yamaha MT-125

The only difference is loss of 2 kg body weight and aerodynamic panels. Both the bikes are specific to license restricted markets as buyers have to go through different tests to earn their license for motorcycle riding. A1, the smallest motorcycle category, brings the least powered motorcycles into a rider’s reach.

Engine size is limited to 125cc while power above 15 PS is not allowed. When riders use this license for 2 years, they can apply for A2 with more power and again after two years, shifting to A becomes a reality. This helps riders learn motorcycling in the best possible manner.

The news regarding launch of ABS version came first in January 2017. These imported motorcycles for UK are made in India and use a rear disc brake on all 12 shades. The Classic 500 with 2-Channel ABS has started reaching the dealerships in UK.

The addition of rear disc and ABS is currently missing from the Indian spec Classic 500 while Redditch Edition is only on offer on the smaller 350 series. UK misses on the smaller engine as only 500cc version of Classic and Bullet is retailed in the market. They even get a Continental GT with ABS, priced at 5199 GBP (on-road).

Suzuki has officially launched their new 250cc sport bike, GSX-250R in the United Kingdom. The base model is priced at £4299 (INR 3.49 lakh, approx.) and the MotoGP replica is priced at £4399 (INR 3.57 lakh, approx.). The quarter liter GSX-250R was also showcased at the EICMA Motorcycle show in Milan last year. As of now, Suzuki has not announced anything regarding the launch of GSX-250R (Gixxer 250) in India. They have no plans for now, Suzuki might consider GSX-250R for India by the end of this year.

GSX-250R looks amazing in its liter class rivaling design. However, the saddest part comes out to be its engine, shared with the Inazuma and producing figures which can put itself to shame on its design behalf. The 248cc, twin cylinder engine produces just 24.7 Bhp at 8,000 rpm and 23.3 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. The values are too close to the single cylinder Honda CBR250R being sold in India currently.

The motorcycle seems to be a relaxed rider while the segment competition namely Ninja 250/300 and Yamaha R25/R3 are not going to spare it for that simple reason with their highly powered engines. Visually, it uses the same 140 section tyre from Indian Gixxer while the instrument console even looks the same but feels different with Black background and added features like real time fuel consumption and oil change reminder.

Suzuki GSX-250R measures 2085 mm in length, 740 mm in width and 1110 mm in height. It uses a 6-speed gearbox and misses out on important technologies like slipper clutch or LED front headlights. The seat height stays good at 780 mm. The motorcycle uses a 290 mm, twin piston caliper disc brake at the front while rear is 240 mm disc. ABS has been offered as optional on the motorcycle. Weighing 178 kg, it becomes even slower as the competition measures around 160-170 kg. It carries a 15 liter fuel tank.
