Kawasaki currently sells two variants of the W800 in the global market – Street and Café Racer. The Japanese brand is expected to add another variant to it at EICMA. Expect the brand to unveil 5 new motorcycles at the Tokyo Motor Show and EICMA combined
Kawasaki is going to kick up quite a storm at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show and EICMA shows. The Japanese brand is expected to take the wraps off 5 new offerings at these shows including a new variant of the classic styled W800. Currently, the W800 is on sale in the international market in Street and Café Racer version. The third trim could possibly be a Scrambler. That being said, there is no official confirmation from Kawasaki as yet.
In India, Kawasaki only has the W800 on sale in the Street form. Powered by a 773cc twin-cylinder motor, the W800 churns out about 48 horses and 63Nm. The W800 carries a sticker price of Rs 7.99 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
Coming back to the other unveils from the brand – expect two new products at the Tokyo Motor Show later this week and three more at EICMA in November. One of these motorcycles is likely to be the Z-H2. Leaked images of the flagship naked offering have surfaced on the internet a while back, it is finally expected to be unveiled within the next few weeks. Just like the H2, the Z-H2 is sure to be in a league of its own. When revealed, it will be the only supercharged streetfighter in the world. It is safe to assume that the naked offering will also churn out similar power and torque figures to the H2. While there is no official confirmation about what the other motorcycles could be, we expect a new Versys 650, Z650 and the Ninja 1000 to be a part of that list.
