A W800 Street e a W800 CAFE são ambas compatíveis com a meta de potência de 35kw e iniciar uma nova era para a família W, que remonta a mais de meio século para o icônico W1 de 1966. Agora chegou a hora de estender a legenda com uma atualização fundamental que vê ambas as máquinas compartilham um novo chassi, freios e vários outros detalhes.
STREET Riding position
W800 STREET’s classic upright-style handlebar brings the riders hands up and back in a position reminiscent of the W1.
Long, low-profile tuck & roll seat has plenty of room for the W800 STREET rider and passenger. Urethane at the front of the seat was shaped to facilitate the reach to the ground. Piping around the edge of the seat adds to the retro image.
Separate speedometer and tachometer are complemented by a simple LCD screen and a complete set of indicator lamps.
While the double-cradle frame looks unchanged from its predecessor, it is in fact all new. The required rigidity of each and every piece was reevaluated. Then, while keeping the pipe outer diameters unchanged, the pipe thicknesses were adjusted as necessary.
W800 CAFE features a stylish two-person cafe seat designed for comfort and sporty good looks.
A blend of retro and modern designs, the large ø170 mm LED headlamp casts a bright, white light for great night-time visibility.
CAFE Riding position
On the W800 CAFE, the M-shaped clubman-style handlebar contributes to a sportier, forwardleaning position.
