supporting a warm grey and popping pink paint job, divided by a sleek silver foil stripe, 2LOUD has customized the kawasaki W800 motorcycle. based on a 2016 model, the custom project extends further than just its new color scheme, which also includes the front forks and rear brake drum covered in a chrome finish. the bike has a powerful, stable and compact stance to ensure all eyes follow the hand-made additions, crafted details, and notice those radical removals.

build by taiwan-based 2LOUD custom shop, the kawasaki ‘W800’ significantly rids itself of its massive mufflers, chromed fenders, and passenger peg brackets. instead, a hand-made fuel tank that leads to a front neck tunnel, external fuel pump, and a shorted and re-looped subframe has been added to make both a more powerful performing and appearing machine. furthermore, in terms of design detailing, the motorcycle has gained specially designed side covers, a rear fenders, and a leather and suede saddle to make it even more unique.

  • The color is not to my taste, but I’m not the customer. Well done with the right amount of restraint to take retro-modern and make it a classic. Excellent.
