Niken gets GT treatment
When we first tested the Niken we couldn’t help but think what a great tourer it would make and now it seems Yamaha have had the same realisation, and delivered with a new Niken GT. The GT adds all the usual comforts you would expect for a sports-tourer. Up front there’s a taller screen, heated grips, an extra power outlet plus a new comfort seat. There’s also a pair of 25-litre semi-soft panniers, the base of which has a set of integrated passenger handles. Finally, it comes with a centrestand. The GT will be available from January and given the price of a standard Niken, we’d expect it to cost around £ 15,000.
