Features

Cafe Highlights

  • CAFÉ-RACER STYLE FRONT COWL: A café-racer-image front cowl helps deflect wind while adding to the vintage aesthetic.
  • CLUBMAN-STYLE HANDLEBAR: The forward-leaning clubman-style handlebar offers a sporty, racing-inspired riding position.
  • BLACK ALUMITE RIMS: Lightweight aluminum spoked wheels are resistant to corrosion and feature rims finished in black alumite for a timeless look.
  • CAFÉ-RACER SEAT: A stylish two-person café seat is designed for comfort and sporty good looks.
  • BLACKED-OUT ENGINE: The silver bevel-gear cover on the blacked-out engine draws attention to the engine’s unique design while adding a quality accent.

Ergonomics

  • Stylish two-person café seat is designed for comfort and sporty good looks, featuring a tapered front for an easy reach to the ground.
  • Relaxed, neutral riding position offers comfort, making the W800 CAFE ideal for a wide range of riding applications.
  • Compact switchgear gives the handlebar an uncluttered and vintage appearance while modern internals ensure reliable performance.
  • M-shaped clubman-style handlebar contributes to a sporty riding position.
  • 5-way adjustable clutch lever and 4-way adjustable brake lever enable riders to fine-tune lever position.

Power & Performance

  • DUAL REAR SHOCKS: Dual rear shock absorbers with adjustable spring preload offer a smooth ride and a clean look.
  • CLASSIC EXHAUST SYSTEM: Classic, retro muffler design emits the throaty exhaust note that makes parallel-twin engines infamous. Twin mufflers with carefully tuned internals deliver the characteristic note of the vertical twin’s 360° crankshaft engine configuration—a throwback to the original W1.
  • 773CC VERTICAL TWIN ENGINE: The vertical twin-cylinder 773cc four-stroke engine features a distinct bevel gear-driven camshaft and SOHC 4-valve head and is tuned for low- to mid-range performance for abundant torque, while modern fuel injection provides clean operation.
  • ASSIST & SLIPPER CLUTCH: The addition of an Assist and Slipper Clutch provides a lighter feel at the lever and a back-torque limiting function that helps prevent rear-wheel hop when aggressively downshifting.
  • DOUBLE-CRADLE FRAME: Designed using Kawasaki’s advanced dynamic analysis software, the frame utilizes a sturdy 50mm square-section backbone that is complemented by round pipe downtubes for classic style and modern ride quality.
  • LARGE DIAMETER TELESCOPIC FRONT FORK: Stout 41mm stanchions minimize flex and stiff fork springs soak up bumps on well-traveled city streets. Rubber gaiters are used to protect fork tubes and ensure long fork seal life while adding to the retro appearance.
  • DISC BRAKES WITH ABS: Stopping power comes thanks to an ABS-equipped braking system that features a large diameter 320mm front disc brake paired with a 270mm rear disc brake for excellent response and strong stopping power.
  • 18 IN. WHEELS: 18 in. front and rear wheels provide sporty handling while maintaining the look of a true vintage café racer. Adding to the corrosion-resistant aluminum rims, the spokes feature a special coating that helps keep them clean.

Retro Styling

  • ICONIC AIR-COOLED VERTICAL TWIN ENGINE: An air-cooled fuel-injected vertical twin engine preserves the striking visual impact of the original 1966 W1 model. The iconic bevel-gear-driven cam adds beauty to the cylinder head while reinforcing the engine’s classic appearance.
  • ELEGANT MUFFLER DESIGN: Simple yet elegant muffler design comes thanks to smooth curves and long lines, featuring peashooter-style silencers with slim chambers and long tailpipes.
  • SCULPTED FUEL TANK: The striking curves of the fuel tank naturally draw the eye, further adding to the style element. Its volume gives it more presence for a powerful impression.
  • TRADITIONAL INSTRUMENTATION: Individual speedometer and tachometer exhibit classic display design while a simple LCD screen and complete set of indicator lamps add a modern flare. Beneath the retro-styled exterior, modern internals ensure accurate and reliable performance.
  • ROUND LED HEADLAMP: A large 170mm LED headlamp casts a bright, white light. Ensure the path is lit with six total chambers, four for low beam plus an additional two chambers that illuminate for high beam. Position lamps in the high-beam chambers ensure the whole lamp appears lit, like a retro-style bulb headlamp. Details like a convex lens and chromed headlamp ring speak to the high-quality, classic design.
