Product description

Economical dualsport offers low seat height electric starting and incredible value.

The Kawasaki Super Sherpa® motorcycle is built to tackle a wide range of terrain and appeal to a broad spectrum of riders. Its light weight, maneuverability, low seat height, electric starting, ease of operation and outstanding fuel economy help make the Super Sherpa especially appealing to novice riders who are developing their riding skills. The classic European styling, responsive handling and easily modulated power from its 249cc four-stroke engine let more experienced riders enjoy it on the street, backroads or even in the dirt.

The Super Sherpas air-cooled, dual overhead cam, four-valve single-cylinder engine is specifically tuned to produce a wide range of power to make it suitable for around-town commuting, running errands or trail riding. Its Mikuni carburetor provides good throttle response, but also delivers fuel sparingly endowing the Super Sherpa with spectacular fuel economy.

Cooling fins on the cam covers and specially designed air passageways help to provide efficient engine cooling. Additional cooling capacity is offered by fins on the inside of the cam chain tunnel and on both the inside and outside surfaces of the clutch cover.
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. The comfortable seat is a low 32.7 inches, and its frame provides a narrow mid-section, so the reach to the ground is surprisingly-easy. That frame also features compact geometry to provide responsive handling and the ability to negotiate the tightest of trails.

Low-speed maneuverability is enhanced with a full 51 degree lock-to-lock steering angle for a great turning radius thats usable anywhere from campsite to campus. Rigid 36mm front fork stanchions also contribute to the Sherpas responsive steering. Aluminum triple clamps help reduce overall weight, and 9.1 inches of front wheel travel helps to deliver a smoother ride than most street-only machines.

The box section extruded aluminum swingarm acts through Kawasakis UNI-TRAK® system, to progressively increase the effective damping and spring rate from the single rear shock as the rear wheel arcs through its 7.3 inches of travel.

Powerful single disc brakes, front and rear, provide sure stopping power with responsive feel. Universal tires provide usable traction on the street or dirt.

The Super Sherpas lightweight, compact multi-function digital instruments feature an electronic digital speedometer, dual tripmeters, an odometer and a clock. A compact, bright headlight also helps to save weight.

Other features include a quiet stainless steel exhaust system with spark arrestor, rear grab rails that help improve passenger comfort, as well as providing cargo tie-down and lifting points, and a 2.4-gallon fuel tank that maintains the machines slim profile while giving the Super Sherpa a surprisingly-long cruising range.
