Kawasaki W 800 Cafè Style

Posted: 31 Jan 2011 03:53 AM PST

Kawasaki has recently introduced its new Style Café 800 W, sportier version, intended for the Japanese market of 800 W, the heir to the 650 W that is enjoying good success with all those interested in custom bikes and vintage lovers. The details in which the Kawasaki W 800 Cafe Style differs from the version of the W 800 series are for the truth a few but overall very significant, especially the single-seat stand and aerodynamic fairing are in the background while the new colors of the engine block, circles and superstructures.

At the moment there is no news of its possible importance in Europe, where these bikes seem to have a real mass market, but interested only a few devotees of motorcycling. In any case, the new Kawasaki W 800 seems to have already hit the mark as shown by this new version and the special LSL Clubman W 800 TR-Linkweiler Jochen Schmitz, both extremely smart and very beautiful.Personally I would have perhaps added a two handlebars and exhaust cone for counter-groped also compete (maybe the price) with the Triumph Thruxton, even though I realize that this is a simplistic way of a speech model derived from the mythical Kawasaki W 1, 1966, motion that has really defined an era.

It would also be interesting to see a version in style scrambler in the wake of what has been done by the same for his Triumph Bonneville, although I admit that this Style Cafe 800 W at the end is really a very good shape as it is without wanting to necessarily find the hair egg.

Lastly the new tank, made of aluminum alloy very light and moves with the cap in the middle of the rear fender to help supply, and some technical data (weight of 69 kg, 310 mm of ground clearance, riding 645 mm from the ground) giving further evidence of the goodness of this new two-wheeled Spanish.

A motorcycle with an engine built supercar, was the crazy idea of a manufacturer in the Czech Republic with FGR Midalu 2500 V6: muscle bike with 6-cylinder engine that delivers 240 hp.

At first the idea seemed pure folly, but then with the passage of time and his passion for motorcycles, the project took shape, and now here it is the bike of dreams, trellis frame made of steel tubes, the material used for the saddle is made of carbon fiber. The masterpiece was the billet swingarm, radial mounted calipers Brembo Öhlins suspension, forged wheels OZ.Il until the price has not been defined yet, but if you go out on the market we are sure that some expenses will take care not to fan portfolio.
