The heart of the W800 Café is a 773cc air-cooled parallel-twin with bore-and-stroke dimensions of 77.0 x 83.0mm. Those undersquare numbers (stroke longer than the bore is wide are generally associated with torquey engines. Further emphasizing strong low-to-midrange character, the design has lots of flywheel inertia, and long intake funnels work with a pair of 34mm throttle bodies. Like the W650 of recent years, the Café’s engine comes equipped with a bevel gear cam drive and SOHC four-valve-per-head design, the cylinder-head bevel cover accentuated with shiny aluminum versus the rest of the blacked-out engine package. Given the emphasis on torque, a five-speed transmission is considered sufficient.
