Traditional Instrumentation

Traditional Instrumentation

Faces on the classic dual-dial instrumentation feature model-specific typeface, reflecting the character of the W800.

Iconic 773 cm3 Vertical Twin Engine

Iconic 773 cm3 Vertical Twin Engine

Long-stroke engine tuned for low-mid range performance delivers plenty of torquey feel-good power. The rich engine pulse reminds riders that they are piloting a Twin engine machine. Fuel injection delivers clean, efficient, hassle-free operation. Unlike the predominantly black engines of the W800 STREET and CAFE, the W800’s engine is mostly a brilliant silver, which draws attention to its classic form and inherent beauty.

Vintage Ride Feel: Larger 19” Front Wheel

Vintage Ride Feel: Larger 19” Front Wheel

Large-diameter 19” front and 18” rear wheels give the W800 its classic handling: a fine balance of relaxed, light turning and straight-line stability. The large front wheel especially contributes a characteristic unhurried steering feeling. By comparison, the 18”/18” wheels of the W800 STREET and CAFE deliver slightly sportier handling.

Vintage-Style Riding Position: Seat

Vintage-Style Riding Position: Seat

Long, comfortable tuck & roll seat with thick, ribbed padding has plenty of room for rider and passenger. The front of the seat was shaped to facilitate the reach to the ground, and the seat features piping around the edge.

Vintage-Style Riding Position: Standard Handlebar

Vintage-Style Riding Position: Standard Handlebar

The W800 handlebar puts the rider in a relaxed riding position, between that of the upright, “classic bike” style position of the W800 STREET and the sporty forwardleaning position of the W800 CAFE. (The handlebar position is the same as that of the previous W800.)

Chrome tank emblems

Chrome tank emblems

Chrome tank emblems complement the tank’s lustrous paint. Knee pads on the tank feature the same design as the W800 CAFE.

Round LED Headlamp

Round LED Headlamp

A blend of retro and modern designs, the large ø170 mm LED headlamp casts a bright, white light for great night-time visibility. It features six chambers (four for low-beam, two for high-beam). Position lamps in the highbeam chambers ensure the whole lamp appears lit, like a retro-style bulb headlamp. Details like a convex lens and chromed headlamp ring add to the high-quality, classic design.

Large Round Turn Signals

Large Round Turn Signals

Large round turn signals with orange lenses (instead of compact clear turn signals†) add to the classic styling. Chrome turn signal bodies contribute to the high-quality looks.

Convenient Equipment

Convenient Equipment

Centre stand, featured standard, facilitates maintenance chores. Large stepping surface make it easy to lift the bike onto the stand.
