Kawasaki 4S Champion

For those who may not be aware, the Kawasaki 4S Champion was a popular motorcycle in India during the 1990s. It gained its fame for the reliability, efficiency, and affordability that it provided to buyers at the time. It was manufactured by Kawasaki Heavy Industries, in collaboration with Bajaj Auto in India.

The motorcycle targeted the Indian middle-class consumer base. These buyers, who were looking for an economical yet reliable commuting option, found it very pleasing. It had a simple yet robust tubular frame and was relatively lightweight, which made it easy to handle in city traffic.

It came mated with a 4-speed manual gearbox. Braking duties were handled by drum brakes on both the front and rear wheels. As for suspension, it came with telescopic front forks and a twin shock absorber setup at the rear.
