Kawasaki W230 Retro Bike Showcased: Rival RE Hunter 350

Kawasaki has introduced a new retro bike, the W230, to the Japanese market. This classic roadster follows the Estrella (W250), which was discontinued in 2017. The W230 was unveiled at the 2023 Japan Mobility Show alongside the Meguro S1. Both motorcycles are identical, differing only in badges, chrome, stickers, and color. 


The W230 is expected to go on sale in Japan in fall 2024 (September to November). Moreover, it will compete with bikes like the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 in the international market. Its old-school charm and straightforward design appeal to those who appreciate the vintage aesthetic of a modern motorcycle.
