The Kawasaki W650 is a retro standard motorcycle made by Kawasaki between 1999-2008. The “W” in its model name makes a historic reference to Kawasaki’s W1, W2 and W3 models, manufactured between 1967 and 1975. The W650 was superseded by the Kawasaki W800, which to the dismay of enthusiasts is only sold in the UK.
The “nostalgic” W650 Kawasaki is a Bonneville-BSA clone resembling the British motorcycles of the early 1960s but replacing the vibrating pushrod engines of the British twin-cylinders with a distinctive shaft-driven bevel-gear overhead camshaft, similar to those found on 1970s Ducati singles and V-twins.
Kawasaki should bring this back… please?
Not just back, but sell it here too.
