Guess the Fat Nikens weight!

Recommended Posts

Hmm...I see the Nikken as more of a FJ 09 (bigger tail vs a FZ09 )with a funky front end. The FJ 09 comes in wet at 465 lbs already.

 

FJ 09 + another pair of forks( 20lbs for the pair- what I've weighed in the past) + another front wheel/tire/brake( roughly 30lbs) +all the mechanisms to make it work (I'm guessing easily 30 lbs) + massive fairing with "fenders" (Gonna guess around 20lbs for weight of the fairing plus innerstructure over an already existing FJ fairing ).

 

465

  20

  30

  30

+ 20

-------

565 lbs. 

 

The tank on the Nikken probably gets big to meet the fairing. Add that dingleberry on the rear tire and the car-like mirrors, I'm gonna guess...around 580 lbs?

This Yamaha rep described it as similar to a Super Tenere in weight. What does a S10 weigh?

 

 

Edit: 2018 Super Tenere specs at 575lbs wet

I wasn't off by an ounce, I WIN

Actually, negative. You didn't win because you didn't >guess< it's weight. So, no win, no prize, so sad, too bad but hey, it was fun! 🤑

 

This carni game is terminated!
