Kawasaki W650 Racer by FCR

Anyone that's been following this site since it's launch in 2006 knows it all started with the purchase of a Kawasaki W650. Since I bought my W it's been a love affair that constantly gets better with each new day of riding. As a base for customisation the W gives you classic looks (mine always...

Kawasaki introduced the classically-styled W650 back in 1999, which morphed into the W800 and eventually went out of production in 2016. The W650/W800 was ahead of its time, coming to market long before the retro-craze caught fire. Kawasaki is now back with the W800 CAFE here in the United... 

I'm happy to admit the reason I bought a Kawasaki W650 was because of Deus ex Machina. Back in '06 when I was searching for a donor bike Deus ex Machina had just come on the scene and some of their very first shop builds were based on W650's. I wanted a bike that was reliable and had classic... 

It seems strange now, but Kawasaki actually beat Triumph to the punch when it came to retro styled motorcycles. First released in 1999, the W650 was a complete anachronism in the world of water-cooled, high-revving street snarlers that dominated the late 90's motorcycle scene. So while the rest... 

From time to time, you see something that makes it hard to believe your eyes. They call it cognitive dissonance; a state where two conflicting images or ideas exist in the mind at the same time. It confounds you and makes it hard to compute exactly what it is that you're seeing. It's also a... 

From the moment that the Kawasaki Z1-inspired Z900RS was announced in October of last year, enthusiasts have been saying they wanted the model to go even further into the retro-racer styling. Just a month later, large portions of the rest of the world received the word that their dreams had been... 

Kawasaki's ZR7 passed through the motorcycling world quietly. It never attempted to be the fastest in its field and didn't earn a reputation for being particularly bad at anything. In fact, it was in every sense of the word, an 'ordinary' motorcycle. What the ZR7 did have going for it though was... 

When Yamaha built their first v-twin powered motorcycle I'm sure the last thing they expected anyone to do with it was to turn it into a cafe racer. The Virago was designed to appeal to the cruiser market and was undeniably influenced by Harley's iconic Sportster. It offered customers a...
