– 2005 Kawasaki Eliminator 125

The Kawasaki Eliminator® 125 is an excellent first bike for beginning motorcycle riders. With its lightweight chassis, easy-to-use four-stroke engine and low seat height, it inspires confidence and helps new riders hone their riding skills. It’s also easy on the bank account, so quick-learners can plan their move up to a larger-displacement Kawasaki.
The Eliminator 125 motorcycle is powered by an air-cooled, 125cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder engine specially tuned for low- and mid-range torque, making it perfect for around-town riding. The electric starter makes getting under way easy and a convenient five-speed transmission allows the rider to use the engine’s full potential.

The engine is mounted in a high-tensile steel, double-cradle frame, while 33mm forks and a steel swingarm with twin, five-way preload-adjustable shocks provide a smooth, comfortable ride. A single, front disc brake provides ample stopping power for this small cruiser, and chrome-plated wire spoke wheels are featured at both ends.

Available in black for 2005, the Eliminator 125’s styling features include a stepped seat with laid-back riding comfort for two, a stretched, 3.4-gallon fuel tank, straight-flow exhaust and chrome-plated single headlight.
