The 2020 Kawasaki W800 makes the perfect wheels for those who live in the mountains or deal with other uneven terrains. This retro bike has roots that date back to the 1960s, and it’s still a big hit today.
The major difference between the classic and the café version would be the handlebar and seat, which hits fully upright on the former, while the latter has a two-tone, more sculpted saddle. With flawless fuel injection and stellar ergonomics, the W800 provides a smooth, steady ride, from the very first twist of the throttle.
Honda Shadow Aero
The 2020 Shadow Aero is one of Honda’s understated and reliable cruisers. Perfect for riders who prefer to blend into the crowd, this reliable bike has roots that date back to 1983.
The retro bike has a classic feel, while still packing some powerful technology. At a price of just $7,699, it’s one of the safer, more affordable versions on the market. If you’re looking for something flashy, keep looking. But if you’re looking for a simple machine to get you from point A to point B, this is a great option.
Ducati Scrambler Icon
Ducati originally started making their scramblers back in the early 1960s. Now, they’re a favorite of new and expert riders who enjoy long trips down twisting country roads.
With a price tag of just $9,595, the 803-cc air-cooled L-twin-powered bike may seem like the smart choice. And, if you’re a novice rider, this model is probably one of the easiest to maneuver of Ducati’s entire line.
MV Agusta Superveloce 800
It’s a big year for retro bikes, which is perhaps why MV Agusta chose to release their 2020, 148hp café style Superveloce 800. Although it may look like it’s designed to go around the dirt track, it is actually built for the roads.
It also costs more than any of the other bikes on the list so far – and, it’s not available everywhere. But, with a three-cylinder engine displacing 798 cc, those in the UK can get their hands on this sleek machine for around $22,000.
Indian Scout Sixty
The 2020 Indian Scout Sixty is a superb entry-level bike that provides an easy ride, which has actually been called easy-going and manageable. With a low seat and pulled back handlebar, it has a sleek yet aggressive frame, perfect for new riders looking to show off around town.
Other reviews have said that it provides a top-notch ride in a great-looking platform and that owners are overjoyed with the price. At less than $9,000, the Scout Sixty is a real steal.
