Introducing the 2024 Kawasaki Eliminator: A Modern Twist on a Classic Cruiser


The wait is finally over for European motorcycle enthusiasts as Kawasaki unveils its highly anticipated 2024 Eliminator, its new 450 cc motorcycle.

Combining the allure of a traditional cruiser with a touch of modern styling, this all-new addition to the Kawasaki lineup promises to offer riders a unique and comfortable experience on the road.

Set to hit the European market in January 2024, the Eliminator is expected to make waves among A2 class motorcycle riders.

One of the standout features of the 2024 Kawasaki Eliminator is its distinctive urban cruiser styling. With a low seat and a cruiser-style 18″ front wheel paired with a 16″ rear wheel, this motorcycle not only looks the part but also delivers a smooth and stable ride.

Underneath its striking appearance lies an all-new trellis-type chassis, providing a solid foundation for an exhilarating riding experience.

Powering the Eliminator is a fuel-injected parallel twin engine with a displacement of 451cm³, derived from the renowned Ninja series. This engine offers impressive low-rev performance while maintaining a lively upper rev range ability. Whether you’re cruising through the city streets or embarking on longer journeys, the Eliminator delivers power and versatility in equal measure.

In a nod to its predecessors, the 2024 Eliminator features a tail unit that pays homage to the heritage of the Eliminator brand. The addition of twin rear shock absorbers not only enhances the motorcycle’s aesthetics but also contributes to the seamless blend of traditional and modern design elements.

With a natural and relaxed riding position, the Eliminator ensures both rider and passenger comfort, making it an ideal choice for those seeking long-distance adventures or leisurely rides through the countryside.

Kawasaki has taken great care to equip the Eliminator with advanced features. The motorcycle boasts all-digital instrumentation, providing riders with crucial information at a glance.

Additionally, an assist and slipper clutch have been incorporated, enhancing the overall riding experience by reducing clutch effort and minimizing rear-wheel chatter during aggressive downshifting.

True to Kawasaki’s commitment to customization, the 2024 Eliminator will offer a range of genuine accessory items, allowing riders to personalize their machines to their liking.

While the complete specifications of the Eliminator are yet to be revealed, Kawasaki’s “Horizontal” design approach is expected to result in a harmonious and well-rounded motorcycle.

Excitement is building as Kawasaki enthusiasts eagerly await the release of the 2024 Eliminator. Two color options have been confirmed, namely Metallic Flat Spark Black and Metallic Matte Carbon Gray with Flat Ebony, further adding to the anticipation surrounding this stunning cruiser.

The release of the Eliminator marks a new chapter for Kawasaki in the mid-capacity European A2 class. With its unique blend of classic and contemporary design, powerful performance, and rider-friendly features, the Eliminator is poised to become a favorite among motorcycle enthusiasts.

The wait will soon be over, and riders across the UK can look forward to January 2024 when the Eliminator will be available at a guide price ranging from £6,600 to £6,800.
