SADLY, OUR SHOP IS TEMPORARILY CLOSING
We have kept our shop open as long as possible because we know how important a role we play to you and the local biking community. Due to the unfolding situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19), we’re very sad to have to let you know we’ll be temporarily closing Robinsons Rochdale from the end of the day on Monday 23 March at 6pm - other than for pre-arranged appointments ( check 1st ) including bikes being collected. We will be contacting all our customers who have bikes on order to make necessary arrangements for their bike collection.
Over the coming days we’ll be exploring ways to offer services remotely, phones will still be answered and emails responded to as swiftly as possibe. Please rest assured we have not taken this decision lightly.
Take care of yourselves, your loved ones and your community, and we look forward to welcoming you back into our shop when the time is right.
Please keep visiting this page and our website for the latest information.

Leaning multi-wheel (LMW) technology
The NIKEN'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.
Bold and futuristic design
With its two leaning front wheels, dual tube upside down forks and broad shouldered stance, the NIKEN projects an imposing and radical look that reflects its revolutionary new riding character. The muscular and athletic body design features a futuristic dual headlight cowl and integrated fuel tank that create a bold and unique profile.
To achieve a natural steering feeling with sport bike agility and confident corner carving performance, a specially developed hybrid frame is used. The cast steel steering head is joined to the cast aluminium swingarm pivot area by steel tubing to give the required levels of strength, rigidity and flexibility precisely where they are needed.
847cc 3-cylinder CP3 engine
847cc 3-cylinder CP3 engine, The NIKEN's torque-rich 847cc 3-cylinder engine has been developed from the outstandingly successful design used in Yamaha's MT-09 and Tracer 900 models. Special fuel injection settings are used to achieve strong performance in twisty and challenging riding situations - and a special crank design gives excellent driveability and smooth starts.
Sports cowl, with dual LED headlights
The broad, downward curving front cowl is equipped with dual LED headlights that underline the NIKEN's sporty and confident character, and the dual position lights help to emphasize the strong and planted look of the dual front wheels. YZF-R1 derived mirrors feature integrated LED turn signals to enhance the bold and futuristic looks.
Deep, 45-degree banking angle
The high-tech front end features dual 15-inch wheels with specially developed 120/70R15 tyres that provide high levels of grip for enhanced feelings of confidence when braking and cornering. With a 410mm track, this sophisticated LMW front end design delivers deep banking angles of up to 45 degrees, to give you an unique experience in corner carving.
