  1. Thanks for all your replies Picking up my 2018 Niken on Thursday cant wait
  2. Are they going to protect engine cases if the bike goes over ?
  3. Interesting view of Suspension in action.
  4. Hi . I have been thinking about buying a Niken to replace my 4 year old 900 Tracer. The Tracer has been a great bike but I love the engineering of the Niken and find it all intriguing. I had a short test run on one a couple of years ago and didn't want to like it but gave me a big grin on the day. A couple of question. 1.

I had an ST1300 that was a great bike but I found the weight intimidating i.e. you had to careful where you parked it with a view to getting out. I have read that the Nikens are top heavy can you give me some feedback on this please 2. How is tyre wear on these ? I probably do between 15/20000 kms per year I get about 15000 out of PR5,s on my Tracer Thanks Phil
