It all began in a shipyard in 1878 by this man, Shozo Kawasaki.
Today, KAWASAKI HEAVY INDUSTRIES, a massive global engineering based company who operate in very diverse markets, but always at the forefront of cutting edge technology.
Full-scale production of motorcycles commenced over fifty years ago. Our first motorcycle engine was designed based on technical know-how garnered from the development and production of aircraft engines. Our entry into the motorcycle industry was driven by Kawasaki’s constant effort to develop new technologies. Over the years we have released numerous new models that have helped shape the market, and in the process, created many enduring legends based on the speed and power of our machines. In 1996, we produced our 10 millionth vehicle, a testament to Kawasaki’s ability to meet the needs of a wide range of riders. As Kawasaki continues to "Let the good times roll," our latest challenges will surely give birth to new legends.
