2025 Kawasaki W800 Unveiled with New Metallic Diablo Black Colour

2025 Kawasaki W800 Unveiled with New Metallic Diablo Black Colour

Kawasaki has unveiled the 2025 iteration of the W800 motorcycle in overseas markets. The bike features a striking new Metallic Diablo Black colour option that beautifully complements the model's modern-retro design.

The new colour scheme has a distinct dual-tone effect, with a gold-coloured pinstripe separating the different shades. This carefully executed detail adds to the W800's classic appeal. Further enhancing the retro aesthetic are the period-correct 'W' emblem on the fuel tank and the functional tank pads that allow the rider to grip the bike.

The Kawasaki W800 encapsulates the charm of modern-retro motorcycles, both in terms of its design and mechanical attributes. The round headlight, teardrop-shaped fuel tank, curved fenders, chrome engine casings and exhaust pipes, as well as the wire-spoke wheels, all evoke the nostalgia of motorcycles from a bygone era.

Powering the W800 is a 773cc, air-cooled parallel-twin engine that produces 52 bhp at 6,500 rpm and 62.9 Nm of torque at 4,800 rpm. This engine features a bevel gear shaft drive for the SOHC, 8-valve head, and a 360-degree crank, all of which contribute to the authentic retro motorcycle sound and feel. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

The motorcycle's underpinnings include a double-cradle frame with a telescopic fork at the front and a pair of shock absorbers at the rear, providing suspension duties. The W800 rolls on a 19-inch front and 18-inch rear wheel setup, shod with tube-type tyres.

Compared to competitors like the Triumph Bonneville T100, the Kawasaki W800 stands out as a true retro motorcycle, with more modern features and a liquid-cooled engine. Kawasaki previously offered the W800 in the Indian market in 2020, but it is no longer available. The company should consider re-launching the model in India and heavily localising it to keep the pricing competitive, as the W800 offers a unique and charming retro-inspired experience.
