Three-wheeled motorcycles certainly rub some people the wrong way. They think of tricycles from their days as a child, and that’s pretty much the end of the conversation for them. Yet, the technology shown in the Yamaha Niken confirms that a three-wheel motorcycle is a legitimate motorcycle. While many two-wheel enthusiasts aren’t excited at the prospect of two front wheels on a motorcycle, that doesn’t mean that it won’t bring more new blood into our sport—a concern the manufacturers have sweated over for decades.Other three-wheel vehicles are still of interest, as they are adjacent to the motorcycle world. Coram Publishing President Arthur Coldwells rightfully believes that leaning is an essential part of the motorcycle experience, and it’s a defining feature. That leaves out vehicles such as the Can-Am Spyder, the Polaris Slingshot, and the Harley-Davidson Trike line. We will still cover them from time-to-time, as they are motorcycle-adjacent. However, we’re always going to lean towards motor vehicles that lean in the corners.That brings us to the new electricity-assisted bicycles, such as the Giant. There are factions in the mountain bike world that are aghast at electricity being added to bicycles, and off-road motorcycle enthusiasts love the braap that comes from an ICE, be it two-stroke or four-stroke.Plus, many simply are uninterested in pedaling. However, off-road motorcyclists often don’t have quick access to riding areas, and that’s where the eMTB comes in handy. There are many places you can ride one, and it certainly combines the motorcycle and bicycle buzzes in a fascinating way.When you read our tests of non-leaning three-wheelers or electric-assist bicycles, we’re going to be writing from the perspective of motorcyclists writing to fellow motorcycle riders. From a purely practical standpoint, that makes sense—it’s who we all are. Indulge us now and then, and if we can have fun on different sorts of wheels, let’s go riding!
