Schlachtwerk’s Tommy Thöring is obsessed with the Kawasaki W650. As everyone should be. They’re dead reliable, have handling so neutral it could be described as ‘Swiss’ and look more like a Triumph than a Triumph could ever hope to. If you’re in Germany and you own a Dub you want chopped into something special, it’s Schlachtwerk’s number you’d be punching in your phone. And here’s a great example as to why – their latest creation built around a 2000 Kawasaki W650 dubbed the ‘Silver Racer.’

“The blokes who want to ride a custom-built W650 or W800 in Germany usually find their way to Schlachtwerk HQ,” Tommy laughs. And they should. He’s got a long-standing reputation for building gorgeous, highly-tuned takes on Kawasaki’s modern classic. Some, like the W650 drag racer he built for Sultans of Sprint are off-the-charts insane. But the Silver Racer is a more restrained, practicable bike than that. Which is what Tommy loves to create.
