About Kawasaki W650
Modern power and engineering meet up with period-perfect vintage detailing in the Kawasaki W650. In production between 1999 and 2007, the W650 finds its inspiration in the classic W series of Kawasaki bikes from the 1960s. Many bike aficionados, however, regard it as the true successor to the classic Triumph Bonneville from the same era, thanks to its near impeccable attention to vintage detailing and design, including a Bonneville-style gas tank and badges, long, cylindrical mufflers, a rear drum brake, classic knee pads, and rubber fork gaiters. With its standard body, a Kawasaki W1 650 provides an upright riding style that falls between the laid back seat of a cruiser and the forward stance of a sports bike, making it ideal for commuter riding and long hauls. The long-stroke, air-cooled crank 676cc engine in the W650 can reach top speeds of 110 mph, and sports a design similar to V-twins from the 1970s. Anyone on the lookout for a powerful bike with a vintage look can explore the large inventory of Kawasaki W650 options available from sellers on eBay and get their own version of a road classic.
