2008 Kawasaki Eliminator 125


Sweet tempered motorcycle offers easy cruising

The Eliminator® 125 embodies classic cruiser styling in a lightweight motorcycle with a low seat height and a friendly powerband. This makes it an excellent choice for new riders or anyone seeking an easy reach to the pavement.

Powered by an air-cooled, 125cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder engine specially tuned for low and mid-range torque, the Eliminator 125 is perfect for around-town riding. The electric starter makes getting underway 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 preloaded-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 on both ends.

Available in Galaxy Silver for 2007, the Eliminator 125’s styling features 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.

With today’s fuel prices, even motorcyclists need to pay attention to gasoline consumption. A Mikuni 28mm carburetor is miserly with fuel, feeding the torquey 125cc engine exactly what it requires for comfortable cruising.
