Kawasaki W800 'classic' revealed

New 800cc parallel-twin set to take on Triumph in 2011

SAY HELLO to the 2011 Kawasaki W800 - a parallel-twin engined classic bike clone set to replace the company's now defunct W650.

The new 800cc machine is set to go head-to-head with the Triumph Bonneville 865 in the replica classic market, with a retail price rumoured to compete with the Bonneville's £5,899 price tag.

In line with the new bike's 150cc hike over the old W650, Kawasaki's new W800 will produce more power, too. It's estimated the parallel-twin will produce around 70bhp.
