Now i thought i better post something other than a SR400. I feel like i have been too bias. I love the W650. It looks like a british bike and the japanese manufacturer Kawasaki don’t deny they copied some early british bikes. They are proud of what they created. Why wouldnt they be… Its an awesome looking machine and a great start to a cafe racer.

The Kawasaki W650 is designed to resemble British motorcycles of the early 1960’s. The styling is particularly based on the Triumph Bonneville. However, while British twin-cylinder motorcycles of the period had pushrod engines, the W650 is distinctive in having an shaft-driven overhead camshaft similar to those used on single-cylinder motorcycles from Ducati and Velocette.Heres a couple of pics to get you excited. I particularly love the b&W pic…
