The Kawasaki W motorcycle has never known conformity. At its inception, the 1966 Kawasaki W1 650 represented Kawasaki’s quest for speed and was a true competitor to the well-established Western manufacturers. From there, Kawasaki’s first twin cylinder, four-stroke powered motorcycles evolved into the W1SS, W2, W2TT, W3, and went on to pave the way for future Kawasaki legends. The Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan solidified the 1966 W1 650 as one of the greats by voting it a landmark of Japanese automotive technology. Today, Kawasaki W1 and W2 motorcycles are highly sought-after collectibles. Preserving the authenticity of the famed W1, the W800 CAFE has been modernized for trailblazers who prefer to ride to the throaty roar of timeless performance.
The 1960s spirit runs deep in the 2019 Kawasaki W800 CAFE motorcycle. For 2019, Kawasaki brings class-leading authentic styling, sound and feel to the category of retro motorcycles. In building the W800 CAFE, Kawasaki has meticulously crafted one of the most authentic retro bikes in appearance and design, paying homage to the past, all while tastefully incorporating modern technology and features.
