The 2023 Yamaha Niken GT has a wide range of significant refinements to give you an even more comfortable and exciting ride – including a new adjustable screen and comfort seat as well as a revised rear suspension. The larger capacity 890cc CP3 EU5 engine delivers even stronger and smoother torque for effortless acceleration – and a 7-inch TFT meter gives you smartphone connectivity and full-screen Garmin navigation capability.
2023 Yamaha Niken GT Features
Leaning Multi Wheel (LMW) Technology
The Niken GT’s advanced leaning multi-wheel (LMW) design delivers an exciting and confident cornering experience. Consisting of parallel quadrilateral arms and cantilevered telescopic suspension, Yamaha’s unique Ackermann design gives enhanced feelings of stability and grip when cornering in a wide range of surface conditions.
7-inch TFT Meter
The large 7-inch full-color TFT meter features a high luminosity display that provides you with clear and easy-to-read information about real-time running conditions. You have the choice of three different screen layouts, each with its own distinctive style to match individual preferences and different riding conditions. A USB-A outlet below the meter keeps your smartphone ready for action.
Connectivity and Navigation
Operated by a simple joystick, the sophisticated new connected full-color 7-inch TFT screen features a choice of three display styles. Through Yamaha’s MyRide App you have access to your smartphone for music, weather, calls, and notifications. Enabled for full-map Garmin Navigation that can make every journey easier – while texts can be displayed when your Niken GT is parked.
Specifically Developed 890cc CP3 EU5 Engine
Niken GT is powered by a version of our 890cc CP3 EU5 engine that has been developed exclusively for this unique Sport Tourer. Although similar to the design used on the MT-09 and Tracer 9, the Niken GT engine has increased crankshaft mass for stronger performance at lower rpm and more effective engine braking.
Easy, One-Handed Windscreen Adjustment
For increased riding comfort the Niken GT features a new windscreen that offers a total of 70mm height adjustment to suit different riding styles and physiques. Its special aerodynamic design distributes air evenly to prevent the build-up of low pressure behind the rider for a stable and comfortable ride.
Redesigned Comfort Seat
The new seat has a revised shape and different padding thickness around the rider’s inner thigh area, giving easier ground access and making getting on or off more comfortable.
Full-Size Hard Side Cases
Hard side cases with a capacity of 30 liters each are mounted to a redesigned stay system. Each case can fit a full-face helmet. Quick to remove with a detachable, lockable design, they provide plenty of luggage space for long-distance touring.
Premium Fit and Finish
Yamaha’s flagship Sport Tourer has been constructed to the very highest specification. From the full LED lighting to the lightweight, hand-welded, 18L aluminium fuel tank, the premium fit and class-leading finish of the black bodywork and bronze detailing underlines the special status of this unique motorcycle.
Enhanced Electronic Control Technology
The ride quality of the Niken GT is enhanced by the adoption of a new Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) with Acceleration Position Sensor Grip (APSG) that gives you even more precise control and smoother starts. The revised traction control along with the 3-position D-Mode and cruise control make the Niken GT adaptable to a wide variety of conditions.
Up and Down Quickshifter, A&S Clutch
With its new up & down quickshifter and A&S clutch you can enjoy the full potential of the high torque 890cc CP3 engine to the max!
Refined Main Frame Design
To accommodate the new more powerful 890cc engine as well as the adjustable screen and 7-inch TFT display the Niken GT’s hybrid frame is revised. Featuring a cast steel head pipe with a steel pipe main frame and cast aluminium rear brackets, this unique design gives a high level of stability together with sporty agility.
Revised Rear Suspension
For an even smoother ride, the Niken GT’s rear suspension settings are refined – and there’s also a new lightweight forged aluminium linkage with a revised lever ratio that provides a high level of comfort and chassis stability whether you’re riding solo or with a passenger.
