Depending on the public response, the company will decide whether to launch the Kawasaki W800 in India.
Kawasaki dealership in Pune has welcomed a new guest, the W800 which has been kept on display. The company needs a judgement about the response of the viewers which might help Kawasaki to make a decision of its launch in India. For retro motorcycle lovers, this unit would be an absolute treat to view in the company’s dealership and on the roads, in the future.
Launched in 2007, the Kawasaki W800 inherited its style and platform from the W650 which got discontinued. The classic design pattern carries so much of elegance with its chrome filled flesh and single unit long seat. The stretched length of the motorcycle with multi spoke wheels, old school mirrors, and retro-style handlebars makes it an alluring package for those who admire old days.
Powering the bike is a 773cc air-cooled, fuel injected, vertical twin motor which churns out 48 PS of power at 7500 RPM and 60 Nm of torque at 2500 RPM. In some European and Asian markets, the W800 got discontinued being in its final edition. We may expect the launch of the Kawasaki W800 by next year with a price tag of around Rs. 10 lakhs. Once launched, it will go against the likes of the Triumph Bonneville Street Twin.
