Overview of the Kawasaki W800 model range

The 1960's spirit runs deep in the Kawasaki W800 retro classic lineup. With every rev, its iconic heritage is unmistakable. Preserving the original classic style, it demands the same respect it did 50 years ago. A true icon never dies, and the Kawasaki W800 is more alive than ever. W: AN ORIGINAL ICON SINCE 1965

  • 773 cc Air-cooled Vertical-Twin engine
  • Assist & Slipper clutch
  • Traditional exhaust system


Original W1-Inspired Styling: The W800 is dedicated to preserving the 1960s image, sound and feel. In a nod to the machines that characterised the Golden Age of motorcycling, a contoured design merges classic attitude and modern aerodynamics for head-turning looks.

  • SCULPTED FUEL TANK - Bold & Stylish: The striking curves of the fuel tank naturally draw the eye, further adding to the iconic elements of the W800 family. Its volume gives it more presence for a powerful impression.
  • TRADITIONAL INSTRUMENTATION - Vintage Meets Modern: The individual speedometer and tachometer exhibit a classic display design while a simple LCD screen and complete set of indicator lamps add modern touches.
  • ROUND HEADLIGHT - Authentic Design: A large ø170 mm LED headlight casts a bright, white light. The path ahead 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 headlight. Details like a convex lens and chromed headlamp ring speak to the high-quality, classic design.


Break the Status Quo: Power and performance features combine with authentic Kawasaki W1 style for an exhilarating ride.

  • ENGINE - Powerful & Torquey: The 773 cc four-stroke Vertical-Twin engine features a distinct bevel gear-driven camshaft and SOHC 4-valve heads and is tuned for low- to mid-range performance. Abundant torque is complemented by the clean operation of modern fuel injection.
  • EXHAUST - 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 Kawasaki W1 motorcycle.
  • DUAL REAR SHOCKS - Smooth Ride: Dual rear shock absorbers with adjustable spring preload offer a smooth ride and a clean look.
  • DISC BRAKES - Strong & Responsive: Stopping power comes thanks to an ABS-equipped braking system that features a large diameter ø320 mm front disc brake paired with a ø270 mm rear disc brake for excellent response and strong stopping power.
  • FRONT FORK - Smooth & Responsive: Stout ø41 mm stanchions minimise 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.


Thoughtful Design: Premium ergonomic features offer comfort for a wide range of riding applications.

  • SWITCHGEAR - Clean & Reliable: Compact switchgear gives the handlebar an uncluttered and vintage appearance while modern internals ensure reliable performance.
  • RIDING POSITION - Vintage-Style Riding Position: W800 models afford relaxed, vintage-style riding positions that accommodate a wide range of riders. The W800 STREET’s classic upright-style handlebar brings the rider's hands up and back in a position reminiscent of the W1.
  • CLUTCH & BRAKE LEVERS - Fine-tune Your Ride: 5-way adjustable clutch lever and 4-way adjustable brake lever enable riders to fine-tune lever position.
