Sometimes it’s hard being a Canadian motorcyclist. Japan always gets the coolest bikes from the factory, and Europe gets most of them, while here in North America, we simply have to be content with whatever trickles down at the end.
Kawasaki’s new retro-themed W800 Café Style is just the latest example of this. It’s new, it’s cool, it’s a great throwback to the days of London’s Ace Cafe, and according to motoblog.it, it’s only made for the Japanese market.
So look at the pictures and lust away – you can look, but you can’t buy. If it makes you feel any better, the Europeans aren’t getting them either (though they do at least get the standard version).
