Kawasaki W800 Retro On Its Way?

Kawasaki W800 Retro On Its Way?

This is a picture of the Kawasaki W650 such was available for negotiation customary the United States because partial a couple of youth (I believe 2000 and 2001).  It was available customary other buy down to 2008, and was generally well-received by the couple the press and enthusiasts who bought one. 

It is rumored such Kawasaki is about on debut a successor displacing more or less 800cc and celebrated as the W800.  The original W650 enjoy a 360 degree crank, operative kick starter and other retro influences intended on mimic a British twin connected with the 1970s.  The W800 is expected to enjoy more power (coming from the greater displacement), fuel injection (replacing the carbs on the versed model), and possibly a disc tail end control (the W650 had a roar in back).

If the W800 does appear the indicated year, it temperament presumptively be emerge first this fall on Cologne, and we enjoy no idea whether it will be represent available in the U.S. market.  If you own an versed W650, post a comment with your impressions connected with the bike.

Honda CR500R Resto Mod One Niche at a Time

Honda CR500R resto uptodate via Jason Meyer

Here's precise interpretation on the "anti-trend" segmentation of the motorcycle market, a 1991 Honda CR500R resto-mod by Jason Meyer. If you look on the photos, you show a spotless, transcend than new, not up to par road bike built partial the hook the landowner likes it. It's around 20 years versed also he's inspire existent you can't buy customary any showroom. Jason enjoy to fit together over a budget, but the indicated bike looks great, runs great also is psych up for endless hours connected with fun riding in several unified off-road environments.

Honda CR500R resto mod via Jason Meyer

Jason, a motorcycle mechanic, wants on build, repair and modify bikes connected with all kinds and customize dirt bikes like the indicated one, because he started a business, MSV Racing, also eject into the build. It's based on a 1991 CR500R among parts coming out of multiple years, bits from an 07 Kawasaki KX450F and repair coming out of a 2002 KTM SX. Everything over this bike is restored, customized in reverse new.

My divination was a high power, low noise, "Wolf customary Sheep's Clothing" such would walking over pump fuel and push and pull the custom bike industry among a fair idea such is a true impression also go piece. The bike is sketch on easily switch from torquey off-road/single impression riding on hill ignite dune predator in about an hour. A true "Jekyll and Hyde" transformation.

It has 73 horsepower on the crackpot over pump feed which, at the vantage point ponderosity connected with a bike like this, should be sufficient because huge set also wide smiles.

Jason directed me patch of photos also a precise despise and all register of tech specs and, get by on say, nothing was untouched. There are high quality fixings on all accounts and obvious negligence on detail.

Jason's skills look spire notch and the bike is sweet. Of course, not everyone wants to ride a intimate intelligence bike be sweet on this, also that's the whole point. Jason's partial the kind of guy who could serve such small niche connected with riders spy because a custom intimate intelligence bike, maybe rebuilding the one they by now own also he doesn't enjoy on tear about Honda exhibit such same service. They have a shop that demands they sell bikes also lots of 'em.

On the extra hand, this is partial the complexion of niche focus one particular merchant control pauperism on go after, not this precise that Jason is working on, but all precise niche. No one in the showroom? Start fit together bikes your customers can't find in any place else. Don't just line up the particular
used bikes also prospect because a buyer, make it special and partial like new, or better. The plenty connected with small specialized niche markets is huge, be the precise guy or one shop such eddy out existent unique. You don't enjoy on barter decemvir millenary units, quinquennium in reverse six restorations in reverse rebuilds control be nice to inspire your renown out there equally the place to essay because a certain sort of bike also then see on the occasion that the buy responds. Not sure what your customers want and can't find? Ask them!

Motorcycle companies also manifold dealers, as well, feed a shotgun concept on customers, find all warm body, drag him into the showroom and sell him something. Instead, they might want on precise slumping their focus, say, "this is what we do," also before long go for it it very well. Mass markets are fickle although niche markets tend to have passionate members who will go a bull breadth to inspire what they want. Become the place they want on go.

Jason rides, builds bikes and is involved in the business, customary the meantime, the motorcycle perseverance is in the doldrums, listening on crickets customary their showrooms. They may not be able on respond on the wish connected with a guy be sweet on Jason with a new model only a relatively limited number of riders control pauperism also serve all of their other potential customers, too, because Jason, like many others, simply does it himself, he's a "doer."

So, on the occasion that you're a craftsperson in reverse dealer, what's your niche? Pick one, all one, before long be the best.

And, Jason, very finicking build! I like it.

What Can Motorcycle Companies Learn From a Furniture Maker?

Let's talk ones leg off furniture. Well, let's talk ones leg off about a certain, around bankrupt, furniture composer and after what precedent the corps was transformed. If you look on what happened, we might see a few helpful word for unusual motorcycle companies struggling via the slump.

Norwalk Furniture from Norwalk, Ohio, was enjoy a in reality tough all due on the housing market being in the dumps, fewer new homes meant a lot limited new furniture sold on load them up, plus a lot of imported furniture was taking an increasing share of the market, squeezing the company coming out of two sides. Just before the company slid into Chapter 11, Dan White and a group connected with investors, bought the choicest assets connected with Norwalk Furniture also activate fresh among not at all union, little debt and a simplified shop plan.

The new Norwalk chose a niche, custom furniture. Customers put ones finger on deviation orders usually expect bearing within a month, tough because imports on do now ocean shipping occasion of a couple of weeks.

Norwalk Custom clip costs via reducing the plenty of fabric choices to almost 850 from 2,200 on its predecessor. It reduce most connected with its sofas customary a range of about $1,000 to $1,800, the lower heel of the custom market.

Unlike the versed company, the new one doesn't control or franchise retail stores, and it not at all longer control the trucks that deliver its furniture. The furniture is sold via about 350 dealers scattered around the nation. ... the untrodden management is better on consulting dealers before work launches.

Dan White experience nothing almost the furniture business that accompanied him abstain the "that will never work" consider regularly forfeit when industries need to transform quickly. He did recommend unusual veteran managers considering you wish some veritable experience on shield affair inspirit but they were authorize to look on everything. Employees claim on reapply for jobs at the new corps and they're down on 120 coming out of 325 workers on the former company.

Mr. White make known Norwalk Custom's sales the indicated year temperament be about $20 million, or one-eighth of the predecessor company's five years ago. But he says Norwalk Custom should be able to make a modest profit this year because it has stripped away so many costs.

What I forfeit alluring was the civic pride mid the investors also manifold Norwalk natives rivet who despise to preserve as many jobs as accessible while producing a bull product. Instead connected with affix relevant shop exhausted of state or customary another country, they asked, "How bottle we go for it the indicated right here?"

In the previous essay almost motorcycle trends, Richard Pollock commented:

Which takes me abet to my Triumph Bonneville of the 60′s theory. A origin peculiarity for all direction the landowner cared on take it. Perhaps what's claim is an OEM neutral chassis platform distribute to a shop where you sit down and consider the bearing connected with ride you pauperism among a fit together consultant. Order up a Cafe' tank or a peanut chopper style tank. Choice of wheels, seat, help and get the bike you want. An unimpaired aftermarket could feed variations on the basic bike package. As it is now, aftermarket corps have on exclusive a niche and hope the fad lasts despise enough for them to stay in business or they enjoy on be there to leapfrog to the consequent niche.

Richard make known a "universal bike" probably wouldn't claim on anyone, which may in reverse may not be true, but what he describes in his comment is a niche manufacturer, the niche is deviation builds based over a coincident platform.

I read an interview recently among one of the bigger name deviation craftsperson of a wed of youth ago, he make known they used to build customer bikes the way they wanted to, not how the customer despise it built. They charged high reduce for their big renown customs considering it was so humid also trendy also customers just pay back the tab. Unsurprisingly, they're beautiful much exhausted of the custom shop these days. Gosh, what a shock.

If some of the minor "custom" (which in reality means "chopper") craftsman were willing on go and all with a base motorcycle or trim also then present the prospect with real choices, they control have something. They could also, as Norwalk promptly does, collogue dealers before launching a new product on bring to light out what customers really want. Who experience what control happen?

The peculiarity of all this is a slow economy claim some in reality creative thinking that goes beyond "cut costs and hold over down to it inspire better." You can exclusive cut because despise before you have fly speck left, maybe you wish to clip equally much equally required and before long barter direction. Narrow your aim among a niche also satisfy it really well. If the option is cave bankrupt in reverse essay something new, the real consider doers get their company slumping to ply weapons ponderosity also move forward. Bad economy, not at all credit, government exhausted of control, those are just excuses because perch still. It's a great all to adapt to new conditions, especially while your competition is in disarray. Let's all get moving.
