W400/650 - (99-08)


The W650 is a retro standard motorcycle made by Kawasaki since 1999. It is designed to reflect the appearance and sound of 1960s British parallel twin motorcycles such as the Triumph Bonneville. The "W" in its model name makes a historic reference to Kawasaki's W1, W2 and W3 models, manufactured between 1967 and 1975.

In the United States and Canada the W650 was imported from 1999 until 2000. With weak US and Canadian sales and the introduction of the competing "retro" Bonneville by Triumph, Kawasaki concentrated sales in Europe and Japan. Kawasaki gave the W650 a long-stroke engine of 72 mm bore x 80 mm stroke in order to mimic the character of historic British parallel twins. However, in 2006 Kawasaki added a short-stroke W400 model, in Japan. Kawasaki simply combined the same 72 mm bore with a short-throw crankshaft to give a 49 mm stroke and 399 cc (24 cu in) displacement.

And while it might no be British, it certainly has the look, style and performance to make a stunning and timeless Cafe Racer.
