the re-pop w800 has been creating quite a bit of buzz as of late.
And the triumph crowd is pissy as usual. Claiming copy cat crap.
And although way back in the late 60s this may have been the case, it isn't today....

What the triumph crowd fail to understand is Kawi came out with the re-pop of the w650 before Triumph dared with the Bonneville re-pop.
In fact Triumph was almost convinced that the Bonneville re-pop would kill their business and fought pretty hard to stop it from happening. Boy were they wrong.

Also in comparison reviews the W650 fared better on average than the Triumph in all aspects.

It's a damn shame we wont get to see the new W800 this side of the pond as it is strictly a euro offering....
