maneuverability, low seat height, electric start function and
ease of operation, the lightweight Kawasaki Super Sherpa
motorcycle is fun, easy to ride and appeals to a wide range of
riders. It's built to tackle a broad spectrum of terrain, and
can be enjoyed on-or-off-road by novice riders who are
developing their riding skills. The smart styling, responsive
handling and brisk power of the 250cc four-stroke engine agree
with more experienced riders as well.
engineers tuned the air-cooled, dual overhead cam, four-valve
single-cylinder engine to produce a wide range of power, so the
Super Sherpa is as good for around-town commuting as it is for
trail riding. Fins on the cam covers and specially designed air
passageways help ensure efficient engine cooling, and narrow
valve angles and a short connecting rod help reduce the overall
size of the Super Sherpa engine so that it fits neatly into the
compact, lightweight high-tensile steel frame.
duties are handled by a rigid 36mm front fork with 9.1 inches of
front wheel travel, and Kawasaki's UNI-TRAK® system for 7.3
inches of travel in the rear. Powerful single disc brakes at the
front and rear wheels provide sure stopping power with
responsive feel, while universal tires promote excellent
traction on the street or dirt.
Super Sherpa features include a quiet stainless-steel exhaust
system with spark arrestor, rear grab rails that improve
passenger comfort as well as provide cargo tie-down and lifting
points, and a 2.4-gallon fuel tank that maintains the machine's
slim profile while giving it extensive cruising range.
