Official kawasaki Website

Kawasaki Motors was found as the part of the Kawasaki Heavy Industries - company specialized in shipbuilding, railroad rolling stock, and electrical generating plants. In 1960, Kawasaki signs an agreement to take over Meguro motorcycles, a major player in the Japanese motorcycle manufacturing business, in order to enter the motorcycle market. The first motorcycle was produced in 1961 - a motorcycle called B8M powered by a 125cc two-stroke motor. Kawasaki built a reputation for some of the most powerful engines on two wheels, spawning legendary sportbikes like the Ninja series and a line of championship-winning off-road bikes.
