KAWASAKI w800 Black edition

Kawasaki W800

The Kawasaki W800

Kawasaki truly have built a head turner with the new W800. It has been designed with a true yesteryear look, but do not be fooled, the materials, engineering and finish are totally up to today's high demands.

The attention to detail on the Kawasaki W800 is astounding, from top to tail it oozes classic character, it has even been graced with a most helpful centrestand.

The aircooled engine has been carefully sculpted, with all metal parts either lustre polished and clear coated or chromed.

With a bore and stroke of 77.0 mm x 83.0 mm, the air-cooled 4-stroke Vertical Twin
displaces 773 cm³. Kawasaki have tuned the W800 for strong low-mid range torque, the max torque arrives at 2,000 rpm.

The rich engine character and strong low-end response enhance the relaxed pleasure derived from riding a true classic motorcycle. The fuel injection offers precise fuel delivery, clean emissions and easy starting. The use of a compact external in-line high-pressure fuel pump enables the design of the elegant fuel tank to remain unchanged.

Chromed covers were crafted to cover the fuel injection system so that the uncluttered looks of the Kawasaki W800 could be maintained.

The Bevel Drive to the camshafts adds to the historic looks of the W800 as do the "pea shooter style " highly chromed exhausts and the Dunlop TT100 Period styled tyres (do not be fooled, it is current day rubber compound).

The traditional instrumentation includes individual speedo and tacho with a classic display. A multi-function LCD screen incorporates an odometer, trip and clock. Indicator lamps include an FI warning lamp, dual turn signal indicators, low fuel level indicator, high beam indicator, neutral indicator and oil pressure warning lamp. These combined with the small retro looking switchgears leaves the front end of the bike simple and uncluttered.

5-way adjustable clutch lever and 4-way adjustable brake lever enable riders to fine-tune lever position.

The traditionally styled 39mm front forks of the Kawasaki W800 use rubber gaitors to protect the fork stantions and ensure long fork seal life. The outer tubes have a buffed finish and the rear shock absorbers are pre-load adjustable (5way).

Power restriction is available on request.
