Tillston Motorcycles are fantastic sponsors of the Boundary 500 Motorcycle Group. Nothing has ever been a trouble to them and it is fitting that they are recipients of a ‘Certificate of Appreciation’.

The Boundary 500 Motorcycle Group are very proud of their partnership with Peter and the gang.

The Kawasaki W800 because of those retro looks awakens those memories of the old British Bike, but this time there is a distinct lack of oil leaks and its as smooth as a babies bum.

The two biggest updates to the Kawasaki W800 are the growth in capacity and switch to fuel injection. The Kawasaki W800’s five-mill overbore takes it up from 676cc to 773cc, and is pleasantly brisk enough for this kind of bike and happy to cruise along at 80-90.

The Kawasaki W800’s new fuel-injection helps in this and is faultless: crisp, instant throttle response with nary a glitch or hiccup anywhere in its revs.

Overall, though, the new W800’s performance is not just adequate, it’s amazingly user-friendly both for retro fans and novices alike.

The Kawasaki W800’s handling compliments that perfectly. Its old school, upright riding position, cute, slim proportions and wide-ish bars blend seamlessly with the responsive but soft delivery to make the W800 ridiculously easy to just get on and ride.

The old W650 was generally considered an authentic and classily-detailed ‘reproduction’ thanks to its great-looking engine, alloy-rimmed wire wheels, proper chrome mudguards, retro-style twin dials, kickstart, knee pads etc. But the new Kawasaki W800 takes things up another level. There’s a new, more ‘ribbed’ seat and lower handlebars.

The engine’s cylinders, rear hub/drum and fork sliders are now alloy finished instead of black and there are new, improved mirrors, exhaust heat shields, a different tank badge and more. It all adds up to a gorgeously – yes really – complete and authentic machine which is simply leagues above, say, Triumph’s Bonneville.

The Kawasaki W800 doesn’t just have the authentic specification, it’s beautifully and classily done, too: the two-tone paint is deep, the chrome good, the alloy finishes beautiful. It’s too early to pronounce on reliability yet, but on the strength of how it’s built and put together the W800 is a pretty classy act.

By modern standards, the performance feels distinctly retro too, but in a good way, as the W800 purrs along. The sound is friendly and mellow and the engine pulls well enough not to feel breathless, as the W650 could, aided by plenty of torque at low revs, down to 2,500rpm.

There’s enough thrust to make back roads interesting, while on motorways you can keep pace with faster traffic regardless of wind direction or topography. This sort of use brings the economy down to 45mpg, meaning a range of only 140 miles because the tank holds just 3.1 gallons.Back off the power and things improve, with up to 55mpg and a 170-mile range.

The handling is easy-going, with a pleasingly neutral feel and no nervousness, ideal for swinging through country bends. The set-up is quite soft, more so than the Bonneville, but it’s not bouncy and remains controllable.

So if you want to know anything more pop into Tillo’s at Stockton and speak to Steve. Don’t forget to mention the Boundary. There is also a report on You Tube at;

Remember to mention the Boundary for that special deal, I don’t think you will be disappointed with either the performance or price.
