Kawasaki has unveiled its all-new 2024 Eliminator lineup, a series of motorcycles designed with rider approachability and modern street riding in mind. The Eliminator models are set to break convention, combining a timeless design with advanced technology to create a riding experience that’s both enjoyable and accessible to a wide range of riders.

A Timeless Design –

The 2024 Kawasaki Eliminator sports a sleek, low-profile design that exudes timeless appeal. With a low, comfortable seat and a lightweight chassis, the Eliminator is crafted to be an ideal riding partner for both new and seasoned riders. The bike’s relaxed, upright riding position ensures comfort over long distances, whether you’re cruising through town or hitting the open highway.

Power and Performance –

At the heart of the Eliminator is an all-new 451cc parallel-twin engine, derived from the performance-proven Ninja® 400 platform. This engine features a longer stroke to boost displacement and enhance low-end torque, making the bike easy to handle at lower speeds. With large 32mm throttle valves and fine-atomizing injectors, the engine offers smooth, responsive performance. The six-speed transmission ensures a wide range of riding conditions are covered, from city streets to highway cruising.

Advanced Engineering –

Kawasaki’s advanced dynamic rigidity analysis was used in the design of the Eliminator’s lightweight trellis frame, resulting in optimal rigidity with minimal weight. This contributes to the bike’s low overall curb mass and enhances its handling characteristics. The long and low frame design not only keeps the rider’s seat low but also maintains a sporty feel, boosting rider confidence with light, natural handling.

Wheels and Brakes –

The Eliminator features an 18-inch front and 16-inch rear 10-spoke wheels, equipped with large tires (130/70-18 front and 150/80-16 rear) for added stability and a striking appearance. The braking system includes a 310mm semi-floating petal front brake disc and a 220mm rear petal disc, both providing strong, effective stopping power. Select models come with an anti-lock braking system (ABS), ensuring safer braking under various conditions.

Rider Comfort and Ergonomics –

Rider comfort was a key focus in the Eliminator’s design. The low seat height and scooped design provide moderate hip support, while wide, flat rubber-mounted handlebars offer easier bike control and reduced vibration. The footpegs are centrally located and covered in rubber to enhance comfort.

Modern Technology –

The display includes a digital speedometer, tachometer, gear position indicator, fuel gauge, and more.

This app provides access to vehicle info, riding logs, mobile phone notices, and general settings.
