I;ve never ridden one, but I would love to try one out. They only made them for the US market for 2 years I believe so there aren't too many of them. They make a w800 which apparently is a better bike but it has never been sold in North America The few used w650s I've seen on CL are too high, usually north of 4K. One can usually get a decent Triumph Bonneville for less than 5K, and from what I can tell it seems like a superior Bike. If you look at w650 owners clubs on the net they have a devoted following. If you can try one out, let us know.
