India Kawasaki Motors has launched the Model Year 2020 W800 Street retro motorcycle at Rs 799,000.
The latest addition to the company's retro motorcycle line-up is a take on Kawasaki's 1966 W1, the largest-displacement Japanese bike at the time and one that played a major role in establishing Kawasaki as a manufacturer of large-displacement motorcycles, and is the foundation of the W series of bikes. It also inspired the birth of legendary sportbikes such as the Kawasaki Z1 and Ninja H2.
The W800 Street is powered by an air-cooled 773cc vertical twin engine and features an updated modern double-cradle frame design and modern suspension components. Other highlights include W1-inspired styling, comfortable riding stance, crafted exhaust note emphasising 360deg crankshaft; Kawasaki Advanced Dynamic Analysis designed frame; sporty handling and a sculpted fuel tank.
India Kawasaki Motors is one of the very few OEMs with a positive sales record in the ongoing fiscal. In June 2019, the company sold 251 units (+43%) and in the April-June 2019 period, a total of 687 units (+56%). Will the W800 put more pep into its sales? Stay tuned for more.
