Kawasaki, the renowned Japanese motorcycle manufacturer, has recently unveiled its latest addition to the cruiser motorcycle segment: the 2024 Eliminator 400.
With its launch, the company is setting its sights on competing with one of the most popular cruisers on the market today, the Honda Rebel 500.
The Eliminator 400 is being touted as a more affordable option compared to the Vulcan S 650, and with its powerful engine and sleek design, it is poised to give the Honda Rebel 500 some serious competition.
With its top-of-the-line features and cutting-edge technology, the Eliminator 400 promises to be a major player in the cruiser market, both in Japan and around the world.
While the overall aesthetic of the Eliminator 400 shares similarities with the Vulcan S 650, the bike’s mechanics are rooted in the Z400 naked sportbike and Ninja 400 sportbike. With an output of up to 48 horsepower, the 398cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine provides a powerful and exhilarating ride.
The new 2024 Eliminator 400 stays true to custom cruiser tradition with its distinct wheel sizes – an 18-inch front and 16-inch rear – coupled with dual shock absorbers at the back. This setup offers a remarkably comfortable and laid-back riding experience, ideal for long trips and leisurely cruises.
Moreover, the Eliminator 400 boasts a plethora of advanced technological features that set it apart from its competitors. With Full-LED lighting, a digital display, and ABS brakes as standard, the motorcycle delivers enhanced safety and convenience for the rider.
For those seeking the ultimate riding experience, the ‘SE’ version of the bike takes things up a notch with an array of cutting-edge features. In addition to GPS and a convenient USB port, this model comes equipped with both front and rear cameras, enabling riders to capture and share their adventures with ease.
These features make for a more enjoyable and hassle-free riding experience, whether you’re commuting to work or embarking on a weekend adventure.
Even though the announced prices for Japan have already been disclosed, starting at 759,000 yen (equivalent to around US$5,781), there is still no precise information available regarding the availability of the new 2024 Eliminator 400 in stores.
Furthermore, it remains unclear whether the motorcycle will be made available for purchase in other countries, leaving numerous brand enthusiasts across the globe eagerly anticipating further updates.
