In 1991 Kawasaki decided to start building a nostalgic looking motorcycle for the Japanese market, described as “New Classic Sports Model”.
The market launch in Japan took place in 1992. In 2016 the Kawasaki Estrella still belongs to the motorcycles delivered by Kawasaki. Updated for 2014 with a new seat and color options, the Estrella remains powered by an air-cooled 249cc Single. The engine has a long 73mm stroke with a 66mm bore promising strong low-end torque. Kawasaki claims a peak power output of 17.4 hp at 7500 rpm and 13.3 ft-lb. at 5500 rpm. The simple engine design is complemented by a neatly curved exhaust to a peashooter-style silencer to aid the retro look.
But our good friends from our neighboring Asian country, Indonesia made the Kawasaki Estrella a stand out. Check out this build by The Katros Garage, Slim Tracker Kwasaki Estrella.
