Bike enthusiasts can start booking for the Kawasaki W800 Street.
The Kawasaki W800 Street, inspired by the W1, is finally launched in India at a price of Rs 7.99 lakhs. This 773cc bike retains the styling of the original W-series. However, it comes equipped with modern components like 4-way adjustable brake lever and a 5-way adjustable clutch level. The LCD screen is a welcome addition to the Kawasaki W800 Street design.
The Kawasaki W800 Street specs include a 773cc twin-cylinder fuel-injection engine capable of delivering 62.9 Nm torque. The double-cradle frame and slipper clutch are some of the highlighting features of the Kawasaki W800 Street. The curved body shape reminds bike lovers of the original W-series. The sculpted fuel tank and the round-shaped headlight and round indicators make the Kawasaki W800 Street distinctive from its immediate rivals.
Riding the Kawasaki W800 Street is a dream because the wide handlebar and central foot-pegs enable riders to maintain a neutral riding pose. The twin exhausts and the front suspension fork gaiters remind bike lovers of the good old times. The spoke wheels complement the retro look perfectly. In India, this retro bike is available in Metallic Black/Grey colour.
Two robust 41mm telescopic forks for the front wheels and twin shock absorbers for the rear give the Kawasaki W800 Street a formidable appearance. Disc brakes coupled with ABS add to the safety quotient.
It is a limited production bike because it will arrive as a CKD kit in India. Booking for the motorcycle has already commenced with the first lot of deliveries expected to happen in mid-August. Kawasaki intends to close the booking window after achieving their target. The Kawasaki W800 Street offers stiff competition to Indian Scout Sixty, Harley Davidson Street Rod, Triumph Street Twin, and the Triumph Bonneville.
