Kawasaki W800 Street Highlights

Kawasaki has revealed new colours for its W800, W800 Street and W800 Cafe models. The new colour could soon debut on the W800 Street BS6 sold in India. Kawasaki had launched the W800 Street BS6 in India for Rs 6.99 lakh (ex-showroom), making it a whole Rs 1 lakh more affordable than its BS4 predecessor. The motor now burns cleaner and adheres to BS6 emission norms while still retaining its output figures of  52PS at 6500rpm and 62.9Nm at 4800rpm. It is paired to a 5-speed gearbox via an assist and slipper clutch. Aside from this, the bike features no new changes. The bike is held together by a double downtube frame and suspension consists of a telescopic fork and twin rear shock absorbers. The bike comes to a halt using a 320mm disc up front and a 270mm disc at the rear with dual-channel ABS offered as standard. The W800 competes against the Triumph Bonneville T100 (Rs 8.87 lakh) and Street Twin (Rs 7.45 lakh) in India.

W800 Street Expert Review

The motorcycle industry is a puzzling thing. Today, we’re seeing manufacturers take two rather conflicting directions. On the one hand, bikes are becoming more and more modern, packed with ever more technology, equipped with IMUs, TFT displays, all sorts of electronic wizardry and MotoGP-inspired winglets. While on the other hand, there has been a massive boom in the sale of neo-retro motorcycles. Almost every single manufacturer around has tried its hand at creating these pseudo-vintage motorcycles. Kawasaki is no exception, with its most authentic attempt being the delightfully retro W800 parallel-twin. Today, we’re going to find out if the land of the rising sun has mastered the art of the British twin.

Engine and Performance

In a world full of triples trying to behave like twins and twins trying to behave like singles, the Kawasaki W800 unabashedly uses an old-school 360-degree firing order, just like the good ol’ British twins. What this means for you is that the 773cc parallel-twin motor belts out a glorious, barky, buzzy song with pops and bangs on the overrun for good measure. None of that thrummy Interceptor 650 nonsense. It’s also undersquare, which is something of a rarity these days, and it’s all the better for it. The 62.9Nm torque figure from the long-stroke motor might not sound like much, but when so much of it is available so early in the rev range, the bike feels sprightly enough. And thanks to the 52PS being spread so evenly, Kawasaki could give the bike tall gearing, meaning that five cogs are enough to get the job done. 100kmph sees the motor purring along at 3600rpm in fifth with bags of performance left in reserve.

Engine 773cc, air-cooled, SOHC 8-valve, parallel-twin engine
Power 52PS @ 6500rpm
Torque 62.9Nm @ 4800rpm
Gearbox 5-speed

Don’t be mistaken, this isn’t a quick bike by any stretch of the imagination. There’s 224kg of mass for that engine to pull around, so its actual acceleration figures aren’t that much quicker than something like an Interceptor. But the W800 effortlessly goes about speed, relentlessly building momentum like a diesel locomotive. In almost any gear at any rpm, there’s enough grunt to pull you around, making this quite a stress-free city commuter too. Fuel efficiency figures are quite reasonable for a near 800cc twin. As and when you do need to shift gear, the ‘box makes the trademark clunky sounds but feels smooth and precise.

City Fuel Efficiency 21.14kmpl
Highway Fuel Efficiency 29.68kmpl
Fuel Tank Capacity 15-litres

Unfortunately, our test bike came plagued with electronic issues, the most irritating of which was the failure of the self-start system. We also had the check engine light illuminate a few times and the bike developed frequent misfires, often dying when left idling. When it wasn’t dying, the idling speed sometimes shot up to 3000rpm with no accelerator input. As with many electronic issues, all this could be rooted in something as simple as a contact issue, but the fact that Kawasaki didn’t double-check these things before handing the W over to us has left us a bit disappointed. Nobody who’s paid close to Rs 8 lakh for his motorcycle (approx on-road) wants to be stranded on the side of the road, having to push his quarter-of-a-ton motorcycle just to get it started.

Braking and Handling

224kg kerb weight, 26-degree rake angle, 1465mm wheelbase. None of these numbers point to a corner-carving, apex-seeking missile. And the W800 is no lap-record breaker. But thanks to its wide bars, the Kawi isn’t a completely uncooperative motorcycle either. It’s got pretty neutral steering and doesn’t require much effort to tip in, even if it is slightly slow to turn. And even though the spec sheet disappoints you by telling you about the MRF tyres, the rubber is quite decent and doesn’t hinder your fun in the twisties. What will play spoilsport, is the cornering clearance. With the placement of the footpegs and just 130mm of ground clearance, the W is quick to scrape its pegs once the pace starts getting hot.

Frame Double downtube cradle frame
Rake/Trail 26 degrees/94mm
Wheelbase 1465mm
Ground Clearance 130mm
Kerb Weight 224kg

When you’re not hammering up a mountain, the big ol’ Kawasaki actually rides quite well. 18-inch wheels and 130mm of front suspension travel means that most bumps are absorbed pretty well. And even though 107mm of rear suspension travel doesn’t sound like much, the bike never felt stiff or uncomfortable. That’s not to say it was soft and wallowy either; the W remained composed at all speeds while isolating the rider well from road imperfections. The only thing you will have to worry about is the 130mm of ground clearance. Better slow down for those speed breakers.

To do that, Kawasaki has given the W800 a single 320mm front disc and a rather large 270mm rear disc. Doesn’t sound like much on paper, but they’re up for the job. The rear disc especially offers a significant amount of stopping power, and when you need to drop anchor in an emergency, the bike stops from 100kmph in roundabout 50-51 metres. But this is only possible when the brake calipers are attached to the bike, which wasn’t always the case with us. One of the front brake caliper mounting bolts actually came loose while riding the W800, and of all the thousands of bolts on the motorcycle, this is probably the last one you want coming loose.

Brakes F: 320mm Disc, Twin-piston Caliper
R: 270mm Disc, Twin-piston Caliper
Tyres F: 100/90-18

Safety and Features

Like I mentioned in the introduction to this review, this is the other direction that manufacturers are taking, so the W800 isn't packed with features and it doesn't really need to be. The basics are in place: a fuel-injection system, dual-channel ABS, a speedometer and a tachometer (both analogue). Kawasaki has also thrown in a small, basic digital display that shows you the odometer, trip-meter and time. The analogue tacho is also where the warning lights are housed, and we saw almost every single one of these flash up at us at some point during our test, often multiple at a time.
