2011 Kawasaki W800
The W800 is the result of a thorough
pursuit of the beauty and ride feel possessed by classic
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 genuine 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.
Visual impact from the striking Vertical
Twin engine, classic proportions from a compact frame
with large-diameter wheels and a meticulous attention
to detail give the W800 an authentic quality and classic
difficult to find on modern motorcycles.
Painstakingly sculpted forms, an abundance
of steel and metal parts, and a liberal use of chrome
result in a high quality machine – a worthy
successor to a brand that spans oveer four decades.
