THE KAWASAKI DIFFERENCE
Iconic 1966 W1 heritage runs deep in the all-new 2019 Kawasaki W800 CAFE retro motorcycle. The spirit of the original W1 has inspired the inception of such legendary machines as the Kawasaki Z1 and Ninja H2™. Preserving the authenticity of the W1; the W800 CAFE has been modernized for trailblazers who prefer to ride to the throaty roar of timeless performance.
The W800 CAFE pays homage to the original icon with cafÃ©-racer styling while incorporating modern technology and handling. Ride in comfort with a clubman-style handlebar and a two-person cafÃ© seat while a cafÃ©-racer front cowl completes the retro racer image.
Features may include:
A cafÃ©-racer-image front cowl helps deflect wind while adding to the vintage aesthetic.
The forward-leaning clubman-style handlebar offers a sporty; racing-inspired riding position.
Lightweight aluminum spoked wheels are resistant to corrosion and feature rims finished in black alumite for a timeless look.
A stylish two-person cafÃ© seat is designed for comfort and sporty good looks.
The silver bevel-gear cover on the blacked-out engine draws attention to the engine’s unique design while adding a quality accent.
An air-cooled fuel-injected vertical twin engine preserves the striking visual impact of the original 1966 W1 model. The iconic bevel-gear-driven cam adds beauty to the cylinder head while reinforcing the engine's classic appearance;
