Purchasing motivation, purpose, and comparison

As I grow older, I want to find an all-rounder to be my last motorcycle.

After comparison, I found the final special version of the old W800. It was a used car that only ran 1000km. Although I was a bit at a loss, I bought it; but recently, I am very impressed with the V-Strom 650. interest.


1. Suitable for travel companions who can follow their own pace, have their own preferences, and are not too following the crowd.
2. KAWASAKI’s sales strategy appropriately shows its retro-style appearance, because they directly mentioned “this is a modern street car model without ferocious fangs and sensory-stimulating seasonings”.
3. Unlike the previous TRX850, there is neither a sense of agitation nor a sense of violent operation from top to bottom, nor does it have the pleasing beating and pleasant exhaust sound like the old car W series.
4. Unlike the previous W series, it has a special personality. If you compare it, it can be said to be an 800cc Cub. It is a mediocre and uniquely charming touring motorcycle.


For me, there are no weaknesses in urban riding or long-distance trips, but the lack of performance is a big disadvantage for “young-minded people” (laughs).

Advice for future buyers

Although it doesn’t have any outstanding advantages, I think it is a safe motorcycle. The more you get along, the more you can accompany yourself.

However, if you want to pursue speed and horsepower, it is better to give up choosing another bike.

Future modification plan

Tires, exhaust pipes, brake calipers and suspension systems.
