Our first test of the new Kawasaki W800 suggests that Britain's own Triumph, after five years having things all its own way in the 'retro roadster' class, has a serious new rival on its hands.

Not only is the W800 cheaper and better-specced than its closest Bonneville rival, the Kawasaki's uprated engine means there's now no discernible performance difference.
