Street or Cafe - Kawasaki adds to the W Legend at EICMA

One of the most enduring and identifiable Kawasaki motorcycle families, the Kawasaki parallel twin, air-cooled W stable will house two more thoroughbreds in 2019 bearing the names W800 Street and W800 CAFE.

Having little in common with previous iterations, the newly born Euro4 compliant twins are “90% new” with a whole host of styling, technical and practical changes, many of which are, at first, hard to detect.

Sharing a completely new chassis, each machine has powerful new brakes – including a rear disc for the first time on a W – as well as ABS and, in another nod to contemporary riding, LED lighting.

Celebrating the fact that “original never goes out of style” both the stripped for action 773 cm3 bevel driven camshaft W800 Street and W800 CAFE can trace their roots back over half a century to the original 1966 W1 650; at the time the largest capacity four stroke machine manufactured in Japan.

Fully A2 licence compliant and with a targeted maximum power of 35kW*, the authenticity, classic style and seductive good looks of the new W800 Street and W800 CAFE are sure to attract new riders… as well as tempting existing licence holders who appreciate classic style and carefully considered simplicity of form and function.

Highlighted as 2019 arrivals Kawasaki made the initial announcement of the new W800 Street and CAFE at EICMA with full information to be released at the beginning of 2019.

Aprilia SX125 Wins Autotrader Best Bike Award

The Aprilia SX 125 has beaten strong competion to the top spot of Autotraders Best A1 Bike of 2018!

They had this to say about it:


Design 5/5

The supermoto style has a lot going for it as a learner machine. Basically, being a street-tyred moto crosser means it doesn't just have youth appeal, it's also easy to ride, fun packed and, by not having a fairing, crashes well, too. Italian marque Aprilia, meanwhile, have long been the kings of learner 125s with their racy, sporty, well-specced bikes appealing to 17-year-olds as much as Ducatis do to older riders. Put the two together and the SX125 is the result. Stylish, fun, a doddle to ride and, best of all, reasonably priced for an Aprilia as well - what's not to like?


Riding position 4/5

Wide-barred, upright MX posture gives a great view, tons of manoeuvrability and lots of potential for skids and wheelies - and makes it easy to ride as well. Being a super moto with smaller, fatter wheels adds grip and also brings the whole plot lower to the ground, which is again good for a novice. On the slight downside you're fully exposed to the elements, so prolonged cruising is, quite literally, a pain, while a narrow, firm seat isn't exactly the most comfortable, either. But when you're 17, who cares?


Practicality 4/5

Any 125 has limited practicality or versatility, but the Aprilia SX125 delivers what it set out to achieve. It's easy to ride, nimble through town traffic where it'll inevitably spend most of its time, is great for developing riding skills and is more than capable of the commute to college, or similar, which is about as practical as any 17-er needs to be. It'll also take a pillion better than most 125s (once you've passed your test of course) and will be anyone's pride and joy parked up outside the local McDonalds. If any 17-year-old needs more practicality than that, I'm a Dutchman.


Performance & braking 5/5

Like its RX125 enduro brother, the SX125 uses the fuel-injected, four-stroke, single cylinder powerplant from Aprilia's RS125 sportster which puts out the regulation 15bhp and will happily top 60mph, which is all you can expect from a bike like this. As a motor it's solid and proven and really beyond criticism in this category. Braking, too, via the big, 300mm, single front disc and twin piston caliper, is more than up to the job. It'll even do 'stoppies' at a push…


Ride & handling 5/5

This is where more sporting lightweights such as Aprilias really come into their own and the SX is no exception. With its stiff, steel twin spar frame and decent inverted front forks and rear monoshock, the ride is plush but the handling precise and controlled. Slicing through traffic is a doddle as is terrorizing the local byways and pathways, which is just what any self-respecting 17-year-old requires.


Running costs 5/5

Living with a four-stroke 125 is about as cheap as motorcycling gets - even if it's got Aprilia festooned on the tank. Fuel consumption is miserly, easily exceeding 85mpg, while the SX125's performance, even if ridden like a complete hooligan, is never going to ask too much of its tyres, chain and pads, although, come to think of it, supermoto-style shenanigans such as skids and wheelies will eventually take their toll on the tyres and chain…


Reliability 4/5

As long as it's looked after reasonably well there's nothing to fear here, either. The four-stroke single has been around for a while now and has proven reliable and rugged; being unfaired means there's less to break in a tipple (although you should expect a fairly healthy appetite for levers and bar ends) and there's otherwise not much on the SX125 that can go wrong anyway.


Warranty & servicing 4/5

 Like most of the leading manufacturers, Aprilia offers a standard, two-years, unlimited mileage, parts and labour, manufacturer-backed warranty with its SX125, so there's little to fear here. Similarly, service intervals are fairly typical for this type of machine as well, with major services due every 8000 miles and interim ones every 4000.


Equipment 3/5

Although at first glance it looks fairly lash and fancy, the SX in reality is quite basic which, along with being built in Chine, not Italy, explains its impressively affordable price. That said it has everything you'd expect of a supermoto 125 - USD forks, twin spar frame, (fake) carbon panels and… that's about it. There's also the legal requirement of ABS, of course, but that's your lot. Even the minimalist dash is very basic - but then, that's what super motos are supposed to be like.


Why buy? 4/5

 Supermoto 125s used to be commonplace, with offerings from all the Big Four Japanese. Not any more - which is why this new offering from Aprilia is even more tempting. Simply, as an A1 125, it has it all: exotic Italian appeal; easy riding; a decent spec; great looks; a proven engine and chassis and, perhaps best of all, especially compared to previous Aprilias, a not inaccessible price tag. If you're 17, who could want for anything more?
