THE ORIGINAL ICON
Iconic 1966 W1 heritage runs deep in the 2019 Kawasaki W800 CAFE retro motorcycle. The spirit of the original W1 has inspired the inception of such legendary machines as the Kawasaki Z1 and Ninja H2™. Preserving the authenticity of the W1, the W800 CAFE has been modernized for trailblazers who prefer to ride to the throaty roar of timeless performance.
The W800 CAFE pays homage to the original icon with café-racer styling while incorporating modern technology and handling. Ride in comfort with a clubman-style handlebar and a two-person café seat while a café-racer front cowl completes the retro racer image.

The black bevel-gear cover on the blacked-out engine draws attention to the engine’s unique design.
