50 years of Kawasaki “W” motorcycles

Kawasaki W1
ER Classics Desktop 2022

It is a typical marketing case, but it works out well: In 1965, Kawasaki introduced the W1. With 650cc and 50pk this was the first heavy 4-stroke Kawasaki and not a major sales success. He looked so much like a BSA that people overlooked how much better he was. In 1998, Kawasaki introduced the retro model W1 as a tribute to the original W650. fitted with a "king's shaft" with its engine block. The 650 was upgraded to W2011 in 800.
