        Kawasaki has recently been catering to the retro crowd with the newly unveiled Z900RS SE and Z650RS. Those who want something even more classic will be pleased to know that Team Green has updated the W800 for 2022 with a fresh color scheme: Candy Fire Red/Metallic Diablo Black.

        The new colorway’s European appearance complements the bike’s vintage demeanor and simple componentry. The 2022 W800 is mechanically unchanged from the previous model year. As a classic Japanese twin for the modern age, it doesn’t really need much new parts, especially with how this bare-bones approach works well for retro-inspired bikes.

        Housed within the double-cradle high-tensile steel frame is a 773cc SOHC air-cooled vertical twinas Kawasaki calls itengine. The mill looks properly old-school with its air-cooling fins and shiny matching exhaust pipe, but is equipped with current tech like fuel injection, digital ignition, and an electric starter. Peak power for the W800 is at 46.9hp available at 6,000rpm, while 62.9Nm of torque can be found at 4,800rpm. Transmitting this power to the rear wheel is a five-speed manual transmission.

        Single discs provide stopping power, while a 41mm telescopic front fork and adjustable twin rear shocks hold up the bike.

        The tuck and roll vintage seat, analog dual-pod instrument cluster, chrome tank emblems, and round lighting are all consistent with the classic-style-plus-modern-quality equation.

        The W800 might not get extra features, but is fitted with a small digital screen in the instrument cluster, a center stand, and a larger 19-inch front wheel.

        A specific availability date has yet to be announced, but Italy already has pricing at €10,400 (MSRP), or about P615,000.
