2005 Kawasaki VN800E Drifter from United States of America


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.

General Comments:

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
