KAWASAKI ELIMINATOR 125 In Canada?

just looking at some options, and i got to ride this at my RTI course along with the CBR125r, loved both bikes, but perfered the crusier riding posis.

ive looked on many canadain websites but im still unable to find an elimanator? I drove them at RTI, and they had a bunch, so clearly you can buy them here, its jst a matter of tracking it down.....

Or am i crazy?

Cheers

Dex

This bike sold for 1 or 2 years in Canada. You will see them for $2-$3000 when they pop up for sale. Check you insurance on a Honda Rebel 250 1985-2007 or Yamaha Virago 250 even older Suzuki GN125 GS250 or the Suzuki GZ250

ive contact a dealership about a 08 suzuki marauder 250cc, with 851km on it for 3500

i agree with you, a 125 would be to small, and i would out grow it FAST

if you plan on getting onto the hyway a lot, then the 125 might be be a good option

look at the buell blast... RTI is selling some used ones for $2000. I was going to buy one to fix up and use as my beater bike.

well i contacted kawasaki about the elimanator, they no longer make the 125.

i rethought the CBR aswell and heard some peoples opinions about it. it can carry 115kmh.

so overall it will be the CBR 125R, going to buy it in the winter and get me a discount!
