Mixing high tech with heritage in one seductive retro package, the W800, with classic, class leading features, makes sound, simple sense in a complicated motorcycling world.

"W" styling

Voluptuous fuel tank finished in high-quality paint contributes to the W800’s aura of functional elegance. Newly designed tank emblems, finished in chrome, contribute to the high quality appearance.


Long, comfortable seat with thick, ribbed padding has plenty of room for rider and passenger. Urethane at the front of the seat is shaped to facilitate the reach to the ground. Piping around the edge of the seat follows the line between the rider and passenger’s legs to ensure it does not cut into the rider’s thighs when at a halt.

Elegant muffler design

Simple, elegant muffler design comprises smooth curves and long, straight lines. Peashooter-style silencers with slim chambers and long tailpipes add a vintage touch.

Classic-styled Engine

"Building a beautiful engine" was a key concept when designing the air-cooled Vertical Twin. The classic-styled engine is lightweight, simple and a joy to behold. Iconic bevel-gear-driven cam adds beauty to the cylinder head while contributing to the engine’s classical appearance.


Traditional instrumentation includes individual speedometer and tachometer with classic display. A multi-function LCD screen incorporates an odometer, tripmeter, 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.

Adjustable levers

5-way adjustable clutch lever and 4-way adjustable brake lever enable riders to fine-tune lever span.

Rear shock absorbers

Dual rear shock absorbers, adjustable for spring preload, offer a smooth ride and clean look.


As much as possible, plastic was eschewed in favour of metal. The result is a feeling of authentic quality that can only be obtained from the solid feel of metal parts.
