Rare in the US – “1986” Kawasaki Estrella

In Japan, Less than 5k, Standard by AbhiLeave a Comment

I know many of you are fans of the Kawasaki W650 – but did you know that Kawi made a little brother with a 249cc engine that was never officially sold in the US? The model debuted in 1992, and it was originally called Estrella (Spanish for “Star”). In 2017, it was given the name it deserves: the W250.

When the Estrella was first released, it was sold in Europe and Asia. By 2012, it was only sold in Japan, where it was popular with riders who wanted something cheap and easy to customize.

This example has roughly 15,000 miles on the odometer, and it’s titled as a 1986 model. The seller says that it’s got new tires and “can be a daily rider.” He doesn’t have much else to say about it, but it’s a shame the original paint is gone and the sidecovers appear to be missing.

Find this Estrella for sale in Melbourne, Florida for $3,750 here on Craigslist.
