The Kawasaki Estrella was introduced in 1992 and is now on sale only in Japan.
Before the model rides into the sunset this year, Kawasaki has introduced the ‘Final edition’ of the Kawasaki Estrella in Japan with a new Candy Arabia paint scheme.
The Kawasaki Estrella, which in Europe went by the name Kawasaki BJ250, is powered by an air cooled 249 cc mill which produces around 17 hp of maximum power and 20 Nm of peak torque. The overall design philosophy is similar to the bigger capacity Kawasaki W800 which was rumoured to be heading to India.
The Kawasaki Estrella Final Edition gets a special logo on the fuel tank. The bike is suspended over standard telescopic fork up front and dual springs in the rear.
Brakes include a disc brake in the front and a drum setup in the rear. It promises a low seat height and a comfortable riding position. The final edition model also gets a generous dosage of chrome.
Kawasaki Japan has priced the Kawasaki Estrella Final Edition at JPY 576,640 and will be available from June 1, 2017.
