Seeing the new Kawasaki W800 some may ask themselves "why do hey still make bikes with such an outdated design?" Well, the answer couldn't be simpler: because these awesome machines sell extremely well!

The 2013 Kawasaki W800 carries on the amazing heritage of the old bikes, sporting a vertical twin engine with air cooling, pea-shooter silencers and eliminating as much plastic as possible.

Tradition dominates the new W800: one-piece large and comfortable two-up seat, classic analog gauges (aided by a small multi-function LCD screen), dual rear shocks and a classic fork with a huge round headlight.

The 773cc engine delivers 48 PS and the 217 kg (479 lbs) makes the 2013 Kawasaki W800 a bike equally suitable for commuting and vacation touring with your better half. A plethora of aftermarket optionals are available, such a retro bikini cowling, sporty single seat, tapered exhausts and lots of chrome elements.
