Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. is a Japanese company founded by Kawasaki Shōzō in 1896. It is one of the largest corporations in the world. Nowadays, Kawasaki is known for shipbuilding, bridge and tunnel construction, as well as for manufacturing trains, robots, airplanes, helicopters, tractors, motor vehicles (such as motorcycles, ATVs, and watercraft), as well as satellites, engines, weapons, spare parts for Boeing, Embraer, and Bombardier Aerospace.
There are three principles of Kawasaki company – Advanced Environmental Technologies, Fun to Ride, and Ease of Riding.
At first, Kawasaki was established as a shipbuilding company. And only in 1953, Kawasaki opened the door into the motor vehicle production by manufacturing engines for the airplanes. After the merger with Meguro, it became Kawasaki Motorcycle Co., Ltd in 1962. That same year, the new company built its first motorcycle B8125. This bike became extremely popular in Japan because of its affordable price, strong reliability, and high performance. In 1963, motorcycle B8M became a sensation among motor sports vehicles. The Kawasaki team won the first six places positions during their first race. In 1967, Kawasaki motorcycles participated in the World GP road race in Singapore for the first time. In 1974, the company engineered and produced their first watercraft. In 1981, the KR 250 and KR 350 motorcycles won the Road Racing World Championship GP. In 1984, the company produced their first ATV.
Kawasaki has a class of motorcycles that is called Green because green is their signature color. One of the motorcycles in this group is the Ninja. The Ninja sport bikes always had a popular and easily recognizable design as well as precise engineering. The engines of these motorcycle range from 250 to 1400 cc. This is certainly a huge benefit for Kawasaki, as these motorcycles are equally popular among riders of all skill levels. Another great series of Kawaski motorcycles is the Vulcan, which are popular among chopper riders and travelers. For those, who love enduro, Kawasaki created KLX motorcycles. They have long-stroke suspension and the engines range from 110 to 650 cc which make it easy to overcome any obstacles off-road. Besides these great features, these motorcycles are lightweight that also makes it easier to control them during extreme off-road rides.
Kawasaki motorcycles can be regularly seen at various sport events not only as participants, but also as prize winners. The big advantage of the company over their competitors is the opportunity to engineer and test their new models using aerospace industry tools. Unfortunately, for some reason, Kawasaki motorcycles did not get as popular on the world market as their competitors vehicles.
