Kawasaki recently showed the vintage looking W800 motorcycle, which is a successor to the very popular W650, which was launched in 2004 and retired in 2006. The W800’s design pays tribute to the classic Kawasaki W1 motorcycle, which was first introduced in 2006.
The Kawasaki W800 bike is powered by a parallel 2-cylinder 800 cc motor and replaces the old carburetor with fuel injection. This engine produces 70 horsepower and is mounted to a 5-speed transmission; maximum torque comes at 2,000 rpm.
The W800’s design is stunning and attention to details has been paid in every part of the bike. The bike features lightweight components, weighing 216 kilograms. The bike comes with individual tachometer and speedometer with analog displays and uses LCD digital displays for the odometer, trip meter and the clock. Other display indicators are oil pressure light, FI warning light, low fuel indicator, high beam indicator, dual turn signal indicators and neutral indicator.
The Kawasaki W800 is a perfect bike for anyone looking into a high quality built bike that stands out from the crowd with its beautiful vintage styling. The bike has tastefully placed chrome for those that like a little “bling” on their motorcycles.
