From my reading of assorted on-line Niken reviews: 1) yes, and; 2) it will topple over, if the sidestand's not deployed when parked.Does it have a kickstand?
Are you having issues with the front wheel losing traction and washing out?because of the extra traction those (leaning) two front wheels provide. Same thing with the Niken: if you read some of the magazine reviews, this extra traction -- countering front-end washouts -- is generally mentioned.
Makes me wonder why there are two forks on the outside of each wheel. Why not one bigger one? Like Webby I applaud Yami for the effort, but since we're getting outside the box...how about a more vertical single sided swingarm set up for each wheel? I'm sure by the time they create a way to mount a shock to such a set up it would be ugly as hell but hey, it's not like it's a beauty queen now right?Twice as many front tires, twice as many fork seals and double the fork oii, and l wonder how much additional maintenance at the steering head...
The forks are affixed to the bike like so... The top mount holds the forks on the bike (yellow) and the lower mount just holds them to each other (red)... looks weak to me.

On a conventional motorcycle, the forks are clamped in at each end of the triple tree...

You can also see that it has a kickstand...
