Kawasaki Bikes initially used to produce low powered engines. The history of Kawasaki is completely different as compared to other motorcycle producing companies. In the year 1949, they started manufacturing engines which can be adapted for different bikes. Kawasaki is also involved in other industries like trains, ships and aircrafts. The company first produced 250CC four stroke, 150CC and 60CC two stroke engines, which were developed from German Technology. BMW and Kawasaki had close relationship, while Meihatsu is the subsidiary company of Kawasaki.
Kawasaki Bikes entered into a contract with Japan Company called Meguro Motorcycles in 1937 which is now known to be the major motorcycle company till today. After sometime, Meguro started producing bigger motorcycles and produced a 650CC engine which is was quite heavy but slow. Kawasaki has a good reputation in the market and it launched 500CC H1 model. In 1984, it launched another model Vulcan 750 which comes with 900cc engine. In 90s, Japanese bike manufacturers were in great competition with Kawasaki and it produced the 1052cc bike for the next five years. In 2002, this model was replaced by ZZR-1200 which provides excellent handling.
