The wheels are both 17” spoked and shod with road grooved tyres.
Many details in classic stylesuch as the round headlights, the flat one-piece saddle, the porthole instrumentation with small integrated displaythe teardrop tank with rubber side panels to prevent the legs from slipping and the W logo in relief, which recalls that of the W 800.
