2014 Kawasaki W800 Special Edition

Posted on by  

The Kawasaki W800 Special Edition comes with a special paint job which helps it stand out from the crowd. We especially like how Kawasaki’s engineers have mixed the matt and gloss black surfaces with the black anodized rims and orange details. The motorcycle has also received Kawasaki’s Special Edition logo which is mounted on the fuel tank.

In terms of power, the Kawasaki W800 Special Edition boosts an air-cooled, 4-stroke vertical twin engine with a displacement of 773 cc. The unit generates a maximum power of 48 PS at 6,500 rpm and 60 Nm of torque at 2,500 rpm. All this power is kept under control by a five speed transmission with wet, multi-disc clutch.

It is also worth mentioning that the motorcycle rides on 100/90-19M/C 57H front and 130/80-18M/C 66H rear tyres.

The bike is priced at €8.569.
