I had the pleasure of spending the day this week on the all new 2019 W800 Cafe from Kawasaki. This modern classic motorcycle has been upgraded and now has more power and a more refined ride, without losing any of its old world character.
This Kawasaki W800 Cafe was kindly lent to me by Penrith Motorcycle Centre.
