    I'm more into a street scrambler type but I have to say that Deus make trick machines.

    Still got mine and loving it, it actually goes, stops and handles a lot better than you would imagine. Build quality is great, the only issue I have had is the Exhaust Header nut's on the R/H cylinder worked loose. 2 minute fix on the roadside using the Kawasaki toolkit and I was on my way again. Mines now been debaffled (5 minute job), running Hyde M Bars, a braided front hose and I have a Clubman seat waiting to fit.

    If you want to have a nose around one, try it for size and have a general ponder over it, you can try mine, I'm only in Warrington, your welcome to pop down.

    Anyone after a W800 would do well to pay a visit to Earnshaws in Huddersfield.
    They have customised about 10 W800's with retro Kawa colours, high bars and very open high pipes.
    There is one on ebay as per the link (I have no idea how to put pics on here) that you can look at it to get the general idea.
    They look great and sound even better.

    Collected my 2011 W800 today. Had a great ride back along most of the A272 and really enjoyed it. Great torque, great handling and a pleasure to ride.

    I know it's an old thread but I am struggling to be sensible. Are you all still enjoying these and is there much to look for in a second hand one?

    Still riding mine. Still love it. Toured France, Italy and Switzerland on it last year in cluding 17 passes and loaded with Wolfman panniers and a tent and kip mat.
    It is also huge fun on the types of minor roads in East Anglia that big Advencha and sports bikes don't like to go.
    Never seen another Dub in my outings though.
