- Bookings for the new Kawasaki Eliminator are now open across dealerships with deliveries to begin by mid-January.
India Kawasaki Motor is on a roll in the new year and has announced its second offering already. The company has launched the new Kawasaki Eliminator cruiser in India priced at ₹5.62 lakh (ex-showroom). The Eliminator 500 made its global debut last year and has been steadily making its way to multiple markets outside of Japan. In India, the ‘Eliminator’ name remains iconic in the motorcycle maker’s portfolio and its revival will certainly pique a lot of interest. Bookings are now open across the company’s dealerships.
The new 2024 Kawasaki Eliminator arrives as a classic cruiser with modern styling. The low-slung design and laidback stance remain but the bike also gets a round LED headlamp, exposed frame, and all-black components. The cruiser packs a circular LCD instrument console with all the essentials including a speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, coolant temperature, gear position indicator, two trip meters and more. The unit also gets Bluetooth connectivity via the Kawasaki Rideology app with calls and notifications.
