A mere two hours after Kawasaki's grand unveiling of the new W800 at INTERMOT, German tuning specialist LSL-Motorradtechnik stepped forward with the bike that many believed Kawasaki should have originally produced. LSL's head honcho, Jochen Schmitz-Linkweiler, who had a history as a Kawasaki dealer, managed to secure a pre-production W800 even before it hit the market.

He has since transformed the somewhat ponderous new roadster into a 60s-style flat tracker, enhancing its aesthetics and performance. (The standard W800 featured a rear drum brake – an antiquated choice – and weighed over 30kg more than Moto Guzzi's V7 Classic.) The LSL Clubman W800TR breathes new life into the motorcycle with upgraded suspension, brakes, and a fresh set of handlebars, triple trees, and rearsets. Its black anodized aluminum wheels are wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion tires, while a matte black 2-into-2 exhaust system frees up the engine's potential. LSL might not have dyno-tested the bike yet, but with a few tweaks to the stock ECU, a significant power boost seems within reach.


& How long until a major manufacturer takes note of the rising flat track influence in motorcycle design and challenges the custom shops on their own turf?
