Kawasaki keeps bringing this bike back as a retro Triumph Bonneville. Last time it was the W650 from 99- 06. Interesting..

F&CK! I've been wanting a W800 for many years hoping that they would come to the states!

Too late now.

That color combination isn't tempting me. I do hope they sell well for Kawasaki. I love the shaft drive on the Moto Guzzi.

I've always like the W650/800 concept, but I bet a lot of these new iterations will get repainted. And why did Kawasaki choose to hide the W's central feature -- the beautifully retro-detailed engine -- by blacking it out?

A W650 or an 800 Drifter are the bikes I would consider to replace the 650 Versys......just cool ride around town bikes.

Like the paint. Needs dual shocks. I'd rather have a twin. I would also factor in insurance cost.
