If you're thinking, "Hey, isn't this like the Piaggio MP3?," you're not alone. Niken reminded us of that scooter, too. But this is no scooter. You straddle the Niken like a motorcycle, and the bike's 847cc triple has a standard six-speed transmission (with an electronic quickshifter) and a slip-assist clutch, so you get to shift and control the revs. With two contact patches up front, fully adjustable suspension, the ability to carry 45 degrees of lean angle, and MT-09 thrust on tap, the Niken has the potential to be a seriously fun way to slay a twisty road. The Niken even has traction control, ride modes, ABS, and cruise control.
