Kawasaki has reduced the prices of its W800 Street Cruiser in the Indian market. The 2020 Kawasaki Street Cruiser is now offered with a price tag of Rs 6.99 lakh, ex-showroom; almost Rs 1 lakh less than its 2019 model.
The Kawasaki W800 was launched in India last year, priced at Rs 7.99 lakh, ex-showroom (India). The reason for the reduction in prices for the W800 Street Cruiser is still unclear, Kawasaki has, however, updated the new pricing on their official website.
The Kawasaki W800 since its launch last year has been a limited volume offering from the brand. The cruiser motorcycle comes imported to the Indian market as an SKD (Semi-Knocked Down) kit.
Apart from the reduction in pricing, the 2020 Kawasaki W800 remains mostly unchanged. It carries forward the same features, styling and equipment as its 2019 model. The only other change is the now BS6-compliant engine, powering the Street Cruiser.
The 2020 Kawasaki W800 is powered by the same 773cc twin-cylinder air-cooled engine churning out 63Nm of peak torque. The motorcycle comes with a six-speed gearbox with slipper-clutch, assists and adjustable levers as standard.
The suspension duties on the 2020 W800 is through a set of 41mm telescopic forks upfront and a pair of shock absorbers at the rear. Braking is handled by a single 320mm disc at the front and 270mm disc at the rear, supported by dual-channel ABS as standard.
In terms of styling, the Kawasaki W800 takes inspiration from the old W1 motorcycle of the past, powered by a 650cc engine. The 2020 Kawasaki W800 comes with retro-styled tear-drop fuel tank, round headlamps with LED units, spoke wheels, wide handlebars and centre-set footpegs.
The motorcycle also comes with a twin-pod instrument cluster as well. The 2020 Kawasaki W800 continues to be offered in a single paint scheme: Metallic Flat Spark Black/Metallic Matte Graphite Grey.
Thoughts About The 2020 Kawasaki W800 Street Cruiser Motorcycle
Kawasaki is yet to officially announce the reason for the reduction in prices of the W800 motorcycle. However, with the reduced prices, the Kawasaki W800 is now a more affordable option than its rival, the Triumph Street Twin. The motorcycles also rival the entry-level Harley-Davidson offerings such as the Street Rod and the Street 750.
