Kawasaki VN800 Classic (2003 - 2006) review

A lovely 'little' cruiser, so long as you don't mind working the engine a little more than you might expect from this type of bike

Good styling cues and a lovely engine
Revvy engine is at odds with the laid back cruiser styling

The 800 is a lovely little motor, if a little revvy for a relaxed cruiser. Plenty of go, though, and enough metal for your cruiser money. Nice bike
