1990s Kid size Kawasaki Ninja ?

Hey everyone.

This is something I have been wondering about for a LONG time. Here's the story.

When I was in 2nd grade, (I was 8), this was around 1994. I wanted a 4 wheeler really bad. So my mom and dad would take me to look at ATVs.

Anyway, during one visit, there were a bunch of motorcycles parked outside of the Kawasaki dealer. And I seem to remember that there was a really small version of the ninja. I DO remember this, the speedometer went to 60 mph. And it was basically a smaller version of the bikes.

I am 90% sure it was green and white. They had sportbikes and dirt bikes sitting outside the dealer. And they were arranged from larger to smaller. This one was the smallest one. And I remember sitting on it, and that's how I know the speedometer went to 60.

I searched google but I couldn't come up with anything. I didn't really know how to word the search. But I have been wondering what that bike was since that day. I HAVE to know !! Haha.

Does anyone have any idea if they made a smaller type Kawasaki Ninja ?

Yamaha did the YSR midi moto . I do not remember kawasaki having one but they could well have done so .



Came in 50cc and 80cc versions . Our local dealer Rickys had one in the shop .

Hahahah .... No points, BUT..... I can stop wondering if I was just imagining seeing the bike. So.... maybe, satisfaction points.

Actually.... I may sleep better tonight.

Hehe.

Next mission: find one, buy it, use it as a pit bike until you have kids, then teach them to ride on it.

There would be hot chicks in this signature if the site would let me.

There's a local guy that owns a motorcycle shop that comes into my work pretty regularly. He showed up on one of those YSR's recently. It was pretty awesome to see a big crazy lookin biker dude come tearing into the parking lot on a miniature bike. Fully street legal too!

Look at the pics above. They both have turn signals and license plates on them.

My little brother had one when we were young. He used it as a dirtbike with knobby tires on it, while I stuck to my Elsinore 125.

I have 8 of them (no joke.) They're a blast, although completely ball-less stock. Drop a yz125 motor in (almost direct fit) and they rip.
