I've already looked at a few YouTube clips of the Niken (as I said earlier we've way ahead over here and the Niken is a current topic on 'the other forum') and apart from the technical stuff and the test rider looking like a Star Wars Imperial Stormtrooper, my own impressions are it's just an impractical expensive tilting crotch rocket for Sunday riders.

On the positive side Niken owners could start a new forum and advise future new owners to fit two sets of HyperPro fork springs for "blasting through the twisties!"

In real world biking it lacks the practicability, weather protection, and storage capacity of any of the other tilting 3 wheelers like the long established Piaggio 500 MP3, the Peugeot Metropolis 400, and the Quadro 350 S.
