2005 Kawasaki VN800E Drifter
Classic looks & lines with Kawasaki reliability
Found this super low mile example last week, & just breaking her in, she rolled over 1,000 miles today at lunch!
Nothing for concern, other than a cold starting issue where I learned I need to use choke & allow warmup time.
Very smooth & comfortable ride.
Adequate (but not exhilarating) performance, though performance is not what I bought it for anyways
Show stopper looks in my opinion (but that's why I bought it).
Not the high speed beast my Yamaha XVA1100 is, but it lacks a windscreen so it's hard to press it hard without being blown to shreds.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
