Poland-based Game Over Cycles has unveiled their custom Yamaha Niken, and it looks to be straight from a science fiction film with its bare-metal design. The plastic bits have been replaced with a semi-matte aluminum to make the bike cut through the air almost like a samurai sword. Unlike traditional motorcycles, the Niken sports a tilting trike suspension using Yamaha’s Leaning Multi-Wheel (LMW) technology.
Game Over Cycles ran into some trouble custom-fabricating parts for the Niken. Since the bodywork was all handmade from aluminum, they had to ensure the parts were compatible with its unique leaning technology. The most challenging was creating parts around the front suspension because it moves in many dimensions.
Since the beginning of cooperation with GOC I have been extremely impressed with Staszek’s talent, his unconventional approach to customization and out of this world ideas that have been appreciated around the world for years. I am glad that for the latest project he chose this model, so innovative and unique for Yamaha. Working with such professionals is a pure pleasure,” said Magdalena Piskorz, Yamaha Motor Poland General Director.
