New Kawasaki Eliminator 500

Metallic Flat Spark Black RRP £5,999

When the streets are calling, answer with the all-new Eliminator 500. This bike shakes up convention with a sleek and low design, a low and comfortable seat, and light and easy handling for the most approachable cruiser from Kawasaki yet. Don’t overthink it—timeless design has been combined with modern technology so you can Just Ride. Available from January 2024

Eliminator Tail

While the LED taillight evokes the style of the original Eliminator, the tail design is original. Thin, with its slashcut lower line angling sharply upwards, it contributes to the active performance image.

18”/16” Wheels

Combining a long wheelbase with 18” front and 16” rear wheels helps achieve the low head position and long and low style.

Horizontal Design

A long and low design with elegant proportions is created by the vertically thin fuel tank and the horizontal lines evident from the head pipe to the original tail. The design of the impressive, mid-class sized body suggests a balance of active performance and composure.

Low Seat Height

At 735 mm, the Eliminator’s seat height is the lowest of Kawasaki’s 250-500cc on-road models, contributing to a reassuring reach to the ground. Accessory High and Low seats enable a wide range of riders to enjoy the Eliminator with confidence and comfort.

Ninja-Based Parallel Twin Engine with Strong Low-End Performance

The Eliminator’s Parallel Twin engine offers strong low-end torque, greatly benefiting low-speed control and manoeuvrability, and contributing to low-stress everyday riding. At highway speeds, its strong power and linear response make its Ninja lineage apparent.

Light, Natural Handling

Complementing the long and low style, chassis geometry was carefully selected to achieve light, natural handling. The Eliminator’s easy handling character adds to rider confidence and contributes to stress-free riding.

Twin-Shock Rear Suspension

In addition to contributing to ride comfort and natural handling, twin rear shocks are reminiscent of the style of Kawasaki’s orthodox motorcycles.

All-Digital Instrumentation with Tachometer

Compact, round, all-digital LCD instrument panel offers a modern touch that complements the Eliminator’s authentic style. The highly legible layout includes a barstyle tachometer and gear position indicator – visible reminders of the Eliminator’s active riding potential. Smartphone connectivity enables riders to access instrument functions for an enhanced motorcycling experience.

All-New Trellis Frame

Inspired by the Ninja 400’s highperformance trellis frame, the hightensile steel construction achieves the Eliminator’s low seat height while maintaining the active performance potential of its sportier brother.

Relaxed, Upright Riding Position

A natural riding position with handle grips located where your arms naturally extend and footpegs positioned so that your legs do not feel cramped offers rider reassurance and contributes to stress-free everyday riding.

Passenger Friendly

Ample power, a comfortable pillion seat, and an ergonomic accessory grab bar make it easy to share the Eliminator experience with a friend.

Light Weight

Belying the Eliminator’s long and low design and imposing bodywork, efforts made to keep weight low result in a lightweight chassis. Low-effort manoeuvrability contributes to rider confidence and helps reduce riding stress.
