2009 Kawasaki Eliminator 125

Back by popular demand; the mild-mannered, economical cruising motorcycle

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.

With 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 and budget minded commuters. 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.

With today’s fuel prices, even motorcyclists need to pay attention to gasoline consumption. Thanks to the Eliminator 125’s torquey 125cc engine low thirst, it sips rather than gulps from the 3.4-gallon fuel tank via a 28mm Mikuni carburetor, allowing riders to enjoy few and far between gas station visits.

Available in Metallic Phantom Silver for 2009, the Eliminator 125’s cruiser styling features a stepped seat with laid-back riding comfort for two, straight-flow exhaust and chrome-plated single headlight.
