Features

Ergonomics

  • THOUGHTFUL DESIGN: Premium ergonomic features offer comfort for a wide range of riding applications.
  • CLEAN & RELIABLE: Compact switchgear gives the handlebar an uncluttered and vintage appearance while modern internals ensure reliable performance.
  • VINTAGE-STYLE RIDING POSITION: The W800 CAFE motorcycle offers a sporty riding position due to a clubman-style handlebar and café seat. On the W800 motorcycle, a standard handlebar and a tuck & roll seat provide a more relaxed riding position.
  • FINE-TUNE YOUR RIDE: 5-way adjustable clutch lever and 4-way adjustable brake lever enable riders to fine-tune lever position.

Power and Performance

  • BREAK THE STATUS QUO: Power and performance features combine with authentic Kawasaki W1 style for an exhilarating ride.
  • POWERFUL & TORQUEY: The W800 lineup is powered by a vertical twin-cylinder 773cc four-stroke engine that features a distinct bevel gear-driven camshaft and SOHC 4-valve head tuned for strong low- to mid-range performance. Abundant torque is complemented by the clean operation of modern fuel injection.
  • THE CLASSIC LOOK: A classic muffler design emits the throaty exhaust note that makes parallel-twin engines infamous. Twin mufflers with carefully tuned internals deliver the characteristic note of the vertical twin’s 360° crankshaft engine configuration—a throwback to the original Kawasaki W1 motorcycle.
  • SMOOTH RIDE: Dual rear shock absorbers with adjustable spring preload offer a smooth ride and a clean look.
  • STRONG & RESPONSIVE: Stopping power comes thanks to an ABS-equipped braking system that features a large diameter 320mm front disc brake paired with a 270mm rear disc brake for excellent response and strong stopping power.
  • SMOOTH & RESPONSIVE: Stout 41mm stanchions minimize flex and stiff fork springs soak up bumps on well-traveled city streets. Rubber gaiters are used to protect fork tubes and ensure long fork seal life while adding to the retro appearance.

Retro Styling

  • ORIGINAL W1-INSPIRED STYLING: Kawasaki W motorcycles have never known conformity. The W800 retro classic line is dedicated to preserving the 1960s image, sound and feel.
  • PAINT JOB FROM THE PAST: Ride in style. Both W800 models come in equally eye-catching classic colors.
  • BOLD & STYLISH: The striking curves of the sculpted fuel tank naturally draw the eye, further adding to the iconic style elements of the W800 motorcycle. The larger volume makes an unmistakably powerful impression.
  • VINTAGE MEETS MODERN: The individual speedometer and tachometer exhibit a classic display while a multi-function LCD screen adds a modern touch.
  • POTENT LIGHTING: A large 170mm LED headlamp casts a bright, white light. Six total chambers light the way, four for low beam plus an additional two chambers for high beam. Position lamps in the high-beam chambers ensure the whole lamp appears lit, like a retro-style bulb headlamp. Details like a convex lens and chromed headlamp ring make note of the high-quality, classic design. Taken straight from the past, the W800 CAFE motorcycle is fitted with a sleek café-racer front cowl (not shown).
