Kawasaki W230 Unveiled – Highlights

The W230 showcases a simple, minimalistic design with features such as a circular LED headlight, dual analogue clusters with a digital display and lots of chrome accents in areas like the exhaust pipes, handlebar, headlight bezel and more. While the feature set might seem basic, let us not forget this is a proper retro-themed motorbike with a Kawasaki spirit, so it’s understandable.

The motorcycle dons white paint with a black stripe on the fuel tank and a two-tone seat cover. Apart from that, the bike also sports chrome-finished spoke wheels, enhancing its retro appeal even more.

The W230’s suspension is handled by a gaitered telescopic front fork and dual rear shocks, while the braking is taken care of by front and rear disc brakes with dual channel ABS. The brakes are mounted on an 18-inch front and 17-inch rear spoke wheel.

Speaking of powertrain, the W230 is powered by a single-cylinder, 233cc engine based on the KLR230 which is rated for 20 hp at 8,000 RPM and 20.6 Nm at 6,000 RPM, although the official output figures for the W230’s unit are yet to be disclosed.

Currently, Kawasaki has introduced the W230 for the Japanese market only with no details about its launch in India.
