New Kawasaki 2016 W800 SE for sale in Cairns

Seductive Retro Package

Mixing high tech with heritage in one seductive retro package, the W800, with classic, class leading features, makes sound, simple sense in a complicated motorcycling world.

The W800, in both looks and feel, stands on the shoulders of the legendary Kawasaki W1, the model that started a brand that spans 45 years. Dark and interesting, the W800 Special Edition mixes matt and gloss black surfaces with black anodised style rims, detail features and subtle highlights into an intoxicating cocktail.

It offers components meticulously crafted down to the smallest detail and a feeling of authentic quality that can only come from using metal parts. The rumbling of the air-cooled Vertical Twin engine and the distinct handling that comes with large-diameter wheels pays homage to the magnificent machines from an older generation, gone but not forgotten.

Attention to Detail

Small details like the steel chain guard, elegant muffler design, sculpted fuel tank and steel fenders all help give the W800 its stunning vintage look. The centre stand is a standard item on the W800.
