Video: Kawasaki W800 - retro commuter

Published: 02 December 2010

Kawasaki have created this video to promote their new W800 - it seems to suggest that they're pitching the bike at trendy London types who want a retro-cool commuter for the city. 

With an authentic-looking air-cooled 773cc parallel twin motor, twin rear shocks and pea-shooter exhausts, the W800 certainly looks the part - but so does the competition, namely the Triumph Bonneville and Moto Guzzi V7 Classic.  

The W800 will cost £6499 when it goes on sale in the UK - that's £500 more than the basic Triumph Bonneville (£5999).
