Interesting Facts about Kawasaki motorcycles
Kawasaki was founded as a shipbuilding company and initially did not manufacture bikes. After the second world war, they partnered a failing motorcycle manufacturing company the Meguro International Motorcycle company which was named after a district in Tokyo. The Meguro company failed but Kawasaki acquired the rights to make bikes and bought out the company and for the first time used a four stroke small engine that they have developed for some other purpose in a motorcycle. Thus the Kawasaki motorcycle and engines division of the Kawasaki heavy industries was born. An impressive collection of very reasonably priced Kawasaki motorcycles can be found here.
