I own now my second Kawasaki EN500 (1990) having previously owned a 1991 model I can safely say that these are my favorite bikes so far out of the 30 or so I have owned over the years, smooth power delivery all through the gear range, a top speed which is pretty fast with your forks so far out in front of you, mechanically pretty good compared to some and cheap enough to get replacements for (the engine is the same as the gpz500) I have a pair of slash cuts on mine which make it sound much more… Read Full Review

I found this review very helpful because...it was comprehensive and fair, and the reviewer obviously had a wealth of experience of other bikes, so was able to make a proper judgment on the bike's comparative worth.

Written on: 25/07/2008 by Dru Baker (3 reviews written)

The Kawasaki EN 500 first bike after passing DAS. I wanted a custom cruiser for years and saw mine (a 1996 P plate with 23000 miles) on eBay and won for £1150 and it was in great condition thanks to the previous owners efforts.
Loved the punchy little 500 engine which delivered nice smooth power, if not exactly earth shatteringly fast (it's only putting out about 50bhp after all) and I'm 6'3" and 14 stone. Felt stabble on the road at all speeds and boy was that seat comfy! It's true what they… Read Full Review

I found this review very helpful because...I'm thinking of buying an EN500, and it made out an excellent case for doing just that, based on a thorough appraisal of all the points you would consider before you parted with the cash. Excellent!

Dont matter how hard you try or how much you spend this motor is never going to sound like a V twin. The EN500 has a shortstroke (74 x 58) motor of 30.39 cu therefore for theose that dont understand, the engine revs a lot higher than the lazy throb you get from a longstroke v twin.
The only major problem is with the exhausts which rot at the junctions of the ballance pipe, genuine replacements if still available are over £500 but WEMOTO sell MARVING replacements at around £300 they are excellent quality. Another source of parts is CMSNL.
This bike is a excellent introduction to the world of crusiers and it just fits into a 8 foot long shed.
