Some fifty years since its launch, Kawasaki has announced the end of the iconic W series of four-stroke vertical twin motorcycles; the W800 ‘Final Edition’ marks the end of an era. With a limited number available for the 2017 season, fans and enthusiasts across Europe have a last chance to experience the contemporary descendant of the famous W series that first emerged from the Kawasaki factory in Akashi, Japan, in the mid 1960’s. Suitably christened the W800 ‘Final Edition’, the last model in the line is resplendent in its remarkable Candy Brown and Candy Sunset Orange paint scheme.


The W800, with its authentic retro look and feel is considered by many to be a modern day classic. The clean and simple lines of the beautifully sculpted air-cooled 4-stroke vertical twin air-cooled motor displaces 773cc complete with a bevel gear driven camshaft contributing to the carefully considered heritage engineering approach and stunning visual appearance. Attention to detail abounds and gives the W800 an exquisite quality and nostalgic beauty complete with its distinctive tank badge resembling that of the original W series highlighting the long-lasting heritage of the W800.
