Yamaha and Game Over Cycles Collaborate to Create a Custom Niken

The Niken is a very strange motorcycle. It is certainly unique and innovative. This specific one is the design of Game Over Cycles in collaboration with Yamaha. It is the oddest of them all. The motorcycle was shown at the CUSTOMBIKE-SHOW 2019 in Bad Salzuflen, Germany. At the exhibition, the bike won the appropriate Craziest Bike award. We say that it certainly deserved that prize.

Stainislaw Myszkowski, the Game Over Cycles boss, said it was groundbreaking to some people and divisive to others. That’s why he wished to work on a customized one. The machine underwent a dramatic transformation.

Myszkowski says:

“We changed the whole body. All plastic elements have been replaced by aluminum, thanks to which the vehicle’s shapes have become more sharp, even aggressive, without losing its aerodynamic properties. Bearing in mind Niken’s speed one can say, that now this motorcycle cuts the air almost like a samurai sword.”

The challenging task was to make every component work with all the moving bits of the Niken. There’s a lot going on with the bike’s leaning system, and that put some obstacles in the way of the bike builders. They had to make sure that each unique component was designed to function with the revolutionary design of the bike. Over 1,400 man-hours went into creating the bike into the final custom design.
