“poor chrome & slow heavy 125”

Written on: 18/08/2013 by c90cg125 (12 reviews written)

If you want to keep your eliminator 125 looking good then you are going to have to spend time cleaning & polishing it regularly & especially during the winter months. Plastic chrome on some parts flakes & can go through chains as they stretch easy. Slow heavy bike but you pay for what you get. Better off with honda vt125 or yamaha virago 125 as hold there value better & nicer bikes. Ok as a commuter but you wil be bored with it after awhile… Read Full Review

“Scooter Upgrade”

Written on: 08/05/2013

In 2003 I purchased a new 2003 Yamaha Zuma and put 9,000 trouble free miles in it. In 2012 I purchased a new 2009 Kawasaki Eliminator 125 for $1,995 an incredible value. I put 1,300 miles on it during the first year and really enjoy it and a much more comfortable ride then the Zuma. 60 mph and 70 mpg. The 3.4 gal fuel tank allows for fewer fill ups and gives the bike a grown up look. The manual chock allows for easy starts on cold mornings. I recommend the bike to all riders… Read Full Review

“Nice little bike”

Written on: 19/03/2012

I bought a used 2004 with 1500 miles on it. Have driven almost everyday for the past 6 months and now have 3300mi. Clutch cable broke, but easy to replace. Gotta watch the crankcase oil. Fun bike. I'm 155 pounds and max speed is 64mph on the flat. Mileage is 65-80 mpg, but usually 70 (with 10% ethanol, 75mpg with pure gas). I love the mileage, enjoy the bike, and really don't want anything bigger… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/05/2011

I absolutely love this bike. It's not very quick - mine struggles to get more than 55mph - think it needs an extra gear! However, after leaving it standing for a year before using it again properly, the chain had stretched loads and needs replacing soon, even though it's young. And the engine has broken down on me a couple of times. However, I'd still recommend it, I believe it's just 'cause it was abused a little!… Read Full Review

“Bought Kawasaki bn125 eliminator brand new in 1999,...”

Written on: 24/04/2011

Bought Kawasaki bn125 eliminator brand new in 1999, needed rear suspension arm replacing after 4 months because it had been fitted incorrectly, either at the factory or by the dealer. At 7000 miles it needed the piston, rings and head replacing... by the time it was two years old it would breakdown if driven for more than a mile. Sat in the garage for a year then got rid of it. Seem to recall parts were a nightmare to get hold of.

often mistaken for a harley so killer looks but the engine was… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/05/2010

Have enjoyed using the bike as a commuter to work. Smooth and quiet, comfortable ride but quite slow. I don't need to do any more than 40 mph on my run to work, but on the weekend I have only had it up to 55 mph max. Despite the lack of grunt it is a nice looking bike and does the job it is intended to do. Before I bought it I thought it would be quicker but it trades off the speed for classic looks.
I liked the electric starter, the low ride for the shorter person and the appearance. It… Read Full Review

Bought an 06 Eliminator ( Candy thunder blue ) as a 1st geared bike to get me to work and back each day. Reliable , good on fuel , tax and insurance and what a head turner, i'm moving to a bigger bike in 3 months time and i'll be sorry to see her go, love it to bits - and what a growl on the engine for a single cylinder :D

Written on: 07/10/2009

GET ONE! I have only owned this bike for one day and it is my 1st geared bike, so my thoughts may not be all that relevant to those of you thinking of buying one. All I can say is that the bike was delivered to me at midday and I've just got in (9pm), after riding it here, there and everywhere.
Most of the reviews on here were spot on and I'm glad I read them before deciding on a BN125. I got my 2007 A6F model for what seems a poultry £870.00. It cost £150 to insure fully comp, so I was on the… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/12/2008 by saltrock (1 review written)

A wicked bike. Fantastic easy to use bike. My first bike after mt CBT and I use it to commute to work. I did have a problem with it starting but found that you can get cheap parts on ebay and the main parts brand new are not too bad either. Mine is the 1998 version and now that it is working (contacts needed changing - cost £30 brand new) it is something of a special bike. It looks bigger than it is and sounds it also. I just wish it was a 250cc or higher, for quicker overtaking… Read Full Review

Did my CBT one year ago today on a Honda, had to get a bike to get to work and liked the look of the eliminator and am so glad I did it looks cool and is such an easy bike to ride. Only use it to get 2 and from work (30 mile round trip) I have seen heads turning as I drive round rural England! only bad point I can think of is the speed, the fastest I have got it up to is 71 mph but that was on the hottest day of the year so engine must a been nice and warm already normally top speed is 60 ish… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/04/2008 by fcmarcus (1 review written)

125-restrictive learner laws in the UK narrowed my choice of first road bike. However, given my limited options, I decided on looks ahead of power, and invested in an Eliminator. A great price deal from my local dealer saw me ride out (on the obligatory 'L' plates) on this smashing looking bike. There is no doubt, the looks of the bike are a big plus in this engine category. The bikes are inexpensive to buy, and inexpensive to run: £1.9k new, £15 annual road tax, £90 TPFT insurance (age… Read Full Review

What can I say about this little Kawasaki 125 Eliminator, she's a beauty. Looks great. Ideal learner bike. So easy to handle it is a pleasure to ride, I find myself going everywhere the long way around as I just dont want to get of once I am on. The bike handles so well, I recommend anyone to have this bike. How good does it look?! So good I keep her in the house! I just want to keep adding more bits, the more I add the bigger she looks!… Read Full Review
