Kawasaki's Classic Range Grows With The Kawasaki W800 Cafe

 When Kawasaki's original W, the W1, appeared in 1966 it was the largest-displacement Japanese model of its time. Not only did it mark Kawasaki's first step in becoming a manufacturer of large displacement motorcycles, its design goal of becoming the fastest bike in the world was a precursor to Kawasaki's Quest for Speed and led to the birth of legendary machines like the Z1, Ninja, ZZR1100 and Ninja H2/H2R. By today's performance standards the W1 would not be considered a fast bike, but in its day simply riding a big bike was enough to turn heads and earn the respect of fellow riders and pedestrians alike.

For riders who prefer a leisurely ride at low speed, with the throbbing pulse and throaty roar of an air-cooled Vertical Twin engine playing counterpoint, Kawasaki is proud to present the new model that was designed to capture the look and feel of this iconic bike from yesteryear. The new W800 CAFE is the latest evolution of a brand that spans 50 years. With numerous parts updated compared to the W800 SE, the W800 CAFE the retro models have been thoroughly modernised to deliver rider-friendly machines with easy handling and good stability on the highway.

But not all of the changes are visible - Kawasaki's dedication to preserving the image of the original model can be seen in the air-cooled Vertical Twin engine that meets strict modern emissions standards, the double-cradle frame with completely revised rigidity care of thicker pipe walls, and the carefully crafted exhaust sound of a Vertical Twin with a 360° crankshaft. For a taste of history, look no further than the W800 CAFE.

Striking Engine Design

Iconic bevel-gear-driven cam and the clean, classic lines of this beautiful air-cooled Vertical Twin make it a key styling element of the W800 CAFE's design. Long-stroke engine tuned for low-mid range performance delivers plenty of torquey feel-good power. The rich engine pulse reminds riders that they are piloting a Twin engine machine. Fuel injection delivers clean, efficient, hassle-free operation.

Traditional Instrumentation

Traditional instrumentation includes individual speedometer and tachometer with classic display. A multi-function LCD screen incorporates an odometer, trip-meter, and clock. A full range of indicator lamps includes an FI warning lamp, dual turn signal indicators, low fuel level indicator, high beam indicator, neutral indicator, and oil pressure warning lamp.

Large Disc Brakes with ABS

Stronger stopping power comes care of a larger-diameter 320 mm diameter front disc paired with a 270 mm diameter rear disc (previously a drum-type brake). ABS is standard for the 2019 Model W800 CAFE.

Frame with Revised Rigidity

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 re-evaluated. Then, while keeping the pipe outer diameters unchanged, the pipe thicknesses were adjusted as necessary. Round tubes with a smooth finish and minimum welds and gussets contribute to the quality appearance.





Suzuki Katana Available for Pre-Order

 Forged to perfection and polished to a magnificent radiance. Engineered to provide maximum control and optimum performance. Finely crafted to take riding pleasure to a new level. The Suzuki KATANA is destined to create a new legend. From the sharp lines and highlights defining the length of its body to the rider-friendly performance of its 110kW (150PS) engine, every detail of the Suzuki KATANA speaks of distinctive beauty. While its design cues pay due homage to the iconic 1981 GSX1100S KATANA, which stole the hearts of riders around the world, the new KATANA is a thoroughly modern machine that is breathtaking to behold and inspiring to ride.

Japanese swordsmiths devote countless hours to repeatedly forging, hammering, folding and welding raw steel to achieve the right balance needed for the blade to perform optimally. This process is absolutely critical in achieving the desired result. Fired by the same spirit, Suzuki’s development team tested and tuned each component time and again until they were satisfied the KATANA would deliver the optimal balance of power, comfort and control.

The engine features a long-stroke design with a 73.4mm bore and 59.0mm stroke resulting in a broad power range delivered smoothly across the entire rev range. Producing 110kW (150PS) @10,000rpm with 108Nm of torque @9,500rpm putting the power to the ground through a back-torque limiting clutch. State-of-the-art technology provides ultimate efficiency, combined with it's addictive induction noise, makes every ride, a sheer exciting one.

Three-mode traction control system: This track-bred technology provides greater confidence and reduces fatigue by delivering control over engine output that helps prevent rear wheel spin. The system operates so smoothly and naturally that it does not interfere with handling, even when the rider wishes to engage in aggressive sports riding. The rider can freely select one of three modes using the convenient handlebar switch. Mode one is for sport riding with minimal intervention; mode two offers the ideal balance for typical road conditions; and mode three delivers maximum traction control when riding in poor conditions.

The Antilock Brake System (ABS) control unit, produced by BOSCH, is compact and light, weighing in at just 640g. It monitors wheel speed 50 times per wheel rotation, and matches stopping power to available traction.

Toby Price Wins His Second Dakar

Toby Price has done it again - claiming his second Dakar title in Peru after a gruelling final stage which began with just a minute separating him from rival Pablo Quintanilla.

This was no easy feat for Price, who just weeks ago broke his scaphoid bone in his right wrist. "The pain and torture has been worth it" stated Price, "it feels like there are about five people driving a knife in my wrist. It's not very comfortable."

Quintanilla found himself in a spot of bother in the final stage, crashing out and injuring his foot in the process.

But what will become of his trademark hairstyle? Price engaged in a wager with long-time friend and KTM teammate Laia Sainz that if he were to finish higher than 5th, he could kiss Sainz. However if Laia finished better than 15th, she could cut off Toby's mullet. 

Sainz finished 11th overall. 

Sainz is no stranger to the Dakar, having competed in 9, with 5 top 20 finishes; while Price has only competed in 5. She was also in less-than-ideal health, recovering from Q fever which had her sidelined for the majority of 2018. 

A truly incredible victory from an incredibly talented Australian, especially considering Toby himself predicted he wouldn't last two stages. 

Congratulations Toby, Laia, and KTM - we look forward to the haircut!
