A comfortable, relaxed riding position is complemented by a confidence-inspiring reach to the ground. When settled into the low seat you find the handle grips are right where your arms naturally extend. When you lift your feet to move off, the footpeg position offers just the right amount of knee-bend for comfortable all-day riding. With a Ninja-based Parallel Twin engine offering plenty of torque right from low-rpm, the Eliminator 500 delivers plenty of get-up-and-go when riding in the city, while its strong power and linear response make it right at home on the highway. Combined with its capable chassis, riding the Eliminator is like gliding between the open sky and the horizon. Thanks to the blend of reassurance and exhilaration, you may find yourself surprised by the new destinations you reach.
The Eliminator 500 SE, a special edition variation model, enhances the stylish appearance of the standard model with a compact headlight cowl and fork boots. A handle-mounted USB outlet adds to convenience.
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 500 with confidence and comfort.
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.
A natural riding position with handle grips located where your arms naturally extend and foot pegs positioned so that your legs do not feel cramped offers rider reassurance and contribute to stress-free everyday riding.
In addition to contributing to riding comfort and natural handling, twin rear shocks are reminiscent of the style of Kawasaki’s orthodox motorcycles.
Inspired by the Ninja 400’s high-performance trellis frame, the high-tensile steel construction achieves the Eliminator’s low seat height while maintaining the active performance potential of its sportier brother.
The Eliminator’s Parallel Twin engine offers strong low-end torque, greatly benefiting low-speed control and maneuverability, and contributing to low-stress everyday riding. At highway speeds, its strong power and linear response make its Ninja lineage apparent.
While the LED taillight evokes the style of the original Eliminator, the tail design is original. Thin, with its slash-cut lower line angling sharply upwards, it contributes to the active performance image.
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.
The compact, round, all-digital LCD instrument panel offers a modern touch that complements the Eliminator’s authentic style. The highly legible layout includes a bar-style 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.
Combining a long wheelbase with 18” front and 16” rear wheels helps achieve the low head position and long and low style.
The headlight cowl is reminiscent of those found on earlier Eliminator SE models. A clever mounting method (patent pending) helps realise a compact, stylish design.
Fork boots add to the authentic motorcycle style.
A convenient USB-C outlet is mounted on the right handle. The outlet features a waterproof design to help protect it from the elements.
The SE seat is the same shape as the standard seat but features two-pattern seat leather and stitching along its top edge.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
