Kawasaki W800 (2011 onwards)

The Kawasaki W800 is a classic retro-style motorcycle built on the success of the W650 model that became extremely popular in the early 2000s. With slightly better specs and lower price tag, it is an affordable alternative to the Triumph Bonneville 900.

The W800 model comes with an upgraded engine and fuel injection, which makes the bike perform better at higher speeds. Its handling is almost perfect and the old-school upright seating position makes the riding experience pleasant and comfortable.

Despite its affordability, the Kawasaki W800 motorcycle comes with tons of cool features and excellent build quality. As on the previous model, there are many different vintage looking accessories such as twin dials, chrome mudguards and alloy-rimmed wire wheels. But, on top of that, you will also get a brand new stylish seat and lower handlebars, which take the look of the bike onto a whole new level.
