    Specifically developed 890cc CP3 EU5 engine

    NIKEN GT is powered by a version of our 890cc CP3 EU5 engine that has been developed exclusively for this unique Sport Tourer. Although similar to the design used on the MT-09 and TRACER 9, the NIKEN GT engine has increased crankshaft mass for stronger performance at lower rpm and more effective engine braking.
