Kawasaki W800

The 676cc W650 was a great motorcycle. But is this 773cc W800 upgrade a move in the right direction? You be the judge...

A modern classic c/w chromed mudguards, a side stand, and a centre stand. It ought to be British, but it took the Japanese to build it. We're still Triumph men (and women) here at Sump. But a moment of weakness has led us to question our faith. Note that the smaller image (top right of this picture) is flipped/reversed just to show you how Bonneville-like it is.
