The W800 Café has an MSRP of $9,799. It’s competitively priced compared to some of the European offerings, but for what’s essentially an updated W800, nearly $10,000 might be a hard pill to swallow. That said, it’s commendable that Kawasaki was able to pass emissions regs with an honest-to-goodness air-cooled, 360-degree parallel twin. There are bikes that tip their caps to nostalgic archetypes and those that doff their caps entirely. As it gets about as old-school as is feasible in 2019, Kawasaki seems to be trusting that consumers will know the difference.
