Kawasaki worked with Eliminator models ever since the 1980s, but it was only in 1997 when the 125cc model was introduced. The bike featured the very same engine and five-speed gearbox as it does now. The performance figures showed 12 hp at 9,500 rpm and 10 Nm at 8,000 rpm so there was plenty to work with for beginner riders. Color scheme changes followed and in 2005, the Keihin PWK28 carburetor was added together with a new six-speed gearbox. A year later, they turned to the Mikuni BS28 unit and they brought the five-speed gearbox in as the engine wasn’t lively enough to perform just as well in sixth gear.
The Kawasaki Eliminator 125 embodies classic cruiser qualities, in an incredibly fuel efficient and lightweight motorcycle with a low seat height and friendly power delivery. This makes it an excellent choice for new riders, those seeking an easy reach to the pavement and anyone wishing to combine tiny fuel consumption with huge fun.
