The W800 is the result of a thorough pursuit of the beauty and ride feel possessed by vintage motorcycles. It offers a rare beauty care of components meticulously crafted down to the smallest detail, as well as a feeling of authentic quality that can only come from using metal parts. The throb of the air-cooled Vertical Twin engine, and the distinct handling character that comes with large-diameter wheels recalls the ride feel of machines from an older generation, gone but not forgotten. The W800, in both looks and feel, pays homage to Kawasaki’s legendary W1, the model that started a brand that spans 45 years.
Bevel Gear Driven Engine
The W800’s bevel-gear-driven cam shaft contributes to the bike’s iconic sound, whole contributing to the engine’s classical appearance.
Classic “W” Styling
The W800 features the classic and iconic styling of the W series dating back to the original Kawasaki W with its voluptuous fuel tank and chrome finishes.
Lightweight aluminum rims are highly resistant to corrosion. The spokes and nipples are treated with a Cosmer NC finish that allows dirt to be simply wiped off.
Classic Front Fork
Traditionally styled front fork uses rubber gaitors to protect the fork tubes and ensure long fork seal life. Outer tubes have a buffed finish, which contributes to the light looking front end.
