Explore the exciting, yet-to-be-revealed 2024 Kawasaki Eliminator, a LAMS-compliant cruiser featuring a 451cc engine and twin shock rear, expected to debut with stylish colour options and promising optimal riding comfort, set to hit the market in January 2024.
The full reveal of the bike hasn’t yet taken place, meaning not all of the official specs and details are known. What we do know is that the bike will be using the 451cc engine shared across the Ninja and Z 400’s, and rolling on an 18” front, and 16” rear wheel with an all-new tubular trellis frame. The bike is also known to be relying on a twin shock rear end and digital instruments (no TFT), and it comes with assisted slipper clutch for smother downshifts and easier gear changes overall.
While engine specs aren’t known, the Eliminator does already exist in some other markets, and assuming the engine performance is similar to what they get abroad, we can have a stab at the basics. We covered the launch of the Asian market bikes, and that report tells us we have a 49bhp peak power number and 28lb-ft of torque. That peak power will obviously have to be tamed slightly to fit with UK, EU A2, and AUS LAMS regulations, although that’s a more simple task than unlocking extra ponies from the twin-cylinder mill.
One thing we do definitely know is that the bike will be landing in the UK with two colours to choose from, Metallic Flat Spark Black and Metallic Matte Carbon Gray with Flat Ebony.
Until the official launch, the price is TBC. Kawasaki has been kind enough to give us a guide price, though, pitching the new 2024 Kawasaki Eliminator around AUD$12,500 – it is slated to land in dealerships in January 2024.
