Kawasaki motorcycles have been produced by the Japanese conglomerate 'Kawasaki Heavy Industries' since 1961. Series production of motorcycle engines began as early as the 50s, before the group decided to market the entire value chain in the 'Kawasaki Motorcycles' branch. At the end of the 1960s, Kawasaki motorcycles established themselves on the German market thanks to their powerful three-cylinder two-stroke models. At the latest with the production of the legendary Kawasaki 900 Z1 in 1972, Kawasaki achieved the breakthrough. It was the potent four-cylinder engine of the 900 Z1 that put the top dog at the time - Honda's CB 750 Four - in the shade. With a top speed of 227 km / h, the Kawasaki 900 Z1 attracted rebellious horsepower enthusiasts. Since then, Kawasaki motorcycles have enjoyed cult status and are the epitome of powerful and technologically innovative motorcycles. The motorcycle tuning scene has also enjoyed the Kawasaki series for years. Tuning is easy for Kawasaki enthusiasts because the design always allows simple optimization of the chassis. There are also numerous Kawasaki kit sets with which the performance can be increased in a few simple steps.
