Separate speedometer and tachometer are complemented by a simple LCD screen and a complete set of indicator lamps. 

Sculpted Fuel Tank

Sculpted Fuel Tank

The voluptuous curves of the fuel tank naturally draw the eye, making it another key styling element. Its larger volume gives it more presence, creating a more powerful impression than its predecessor.

18" Front & Rear Spoked Wheels

18" Front & Rear Spoked Wheels

While maintaining the vintage ride feel of a true classic machine, 18” wheels both front and rear contribute to handling slightly sportier than that of the original W800.

Crafted Exhaust Note Emphasising 360º Crankshaft

Crafted Exhaust Note Emphasising 360º Crankshaft

The twin mufflers were carefully tuned to bring out the characteristic note of the Vertical Twin’s 360o crankshaft engine configuration, a configuration maintained from Kawasaki’s original W – creating a hearty roar to complement every twist of the throttle.

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.

Classic Upright Riding Style

Classic Upright Riding Style

W800 Street's classic upright-style handlebar brings the riders hands up and back in a position reminiscent of the W1.

Low Profile Seat

Low Profile Seat

Long, low-profile tuck & roll seat has plenty of room for the W800 Street rider and passenger. Urethane at the front of the seat was shaped to facilitate the reach to the ground. Piping around the edge of the seat adds to the retro image.
