About Kawasaki Motorcycle
As the name suggests, Kawasaki is a Japan-based company. The company is slightly different than other automotive or motorcycle companies. Kawasaki Heavy industry is the mother company, whose motorcycle and engine division manufactures the Kawasaki motorcycles. The manufacturing plants for motorcycles are in Japan, Philippines, Michigan, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Thailand, and India. That is to say that the Asia continent dominates the motorcycle manufacturing part of the company. The other products are Asia-based as well.
KHI (Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd.), the mother company, is a public multinational corporation. It is primarily known for its manufacturing in the fields of engines, motorcycles, aerospace, defense equipment, ships, rolling stock, and heavy equipment. The company also produces gas turbines, industrial robots, boilers, and many more industrial products. Kawasaki is named after the founder of this company Shozo Kawasaki. The two headquarters of the company is in Minato, Tokyo, and Chuo, Kobe. Alongside IHI and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Kawasaki is the other major manufacturer of heavy industrial products.
The company has become a globally recognized symbol for engineering-based companies. Although the company has its steps in huge, diverse markets, it has always been at the frontline of cutting edge technology. However, as our concern is regarding motorcycles in this article, let us dig into that. Since their first transportation manufacturing of ships, they have now broadened the range. Now, KHI has engaged itself in building the 21st century's transportation systems. As a result, the motorcycle industry started about fifty years ago, based on the aircraft engine industry's technical ins and outs. They accumulated and applied the technical know-how of different sectors, resulting in the production of high-quality transportation systems. Some of the diverse fields of Kawasaki Heavy Industries are aerospace, rolling stock, shipbuilding, industrial equipment, infrastructure, and transportation.
History/Origin of Kawasaki
The history of Kawasaki Heavy Industries, the mother company, returns to two centuries. Shozo Kawasaki began Kawasaki in 1878 at a shipyard in Japan. Since then, the company has spread and continued providing its services in many fields. It is one of the leading companies with such a diverse network of production in the present world. However, the motorcycle and engine division of mother Kawasaki Company produces Kawasaki motorcycles. The history of Kawasaki motorcycles goes back about six decades.
Kawasaki was partners with Meguro, a motorcycle manufacturer company then. Kawasaki Aircraft bought Meguro and manufactured their initial motorcycles under that 'Meguro' name. The name changed over time, and eventually, it had become Kawasaki Motor Sales. You will see the 'Kawasaki Aircraft' emblem on fuel tanks of the early motorcycles. During the year 1962, Kawasaki was developing an engine of four-stroke for small cars. Some of their engineers went to Meguro, their allied motorcycle manufacturing company, and worked on the SG and the Meguro K1, a single-cylinder OHV of 250 ccs.
Their continued allied work led them to merge in 1963, forming Kawasaki Motorcycle Company Ltd. As Kawasaki was primarily an aircraft manufacturing company, their motorcycle production was under the wings of aircraft manufacturing until 1967, for a period of 5 years. Kawasaki exported the K2 to the United States to test the response of the then expanding American markets for motorcycles of four-stroke engines. However, the motorcycle was rejected due to power lacking. Later on, Kawasaki managed to export motorcycles at moderate numbers. In 1968, the Kawasaki H1 Mach III managed to increase Kawasaki units' sales competing with some other companies like Suzuki, Honda, and Yamaha.
Local History of Kawasaki in the Philippines
Kawasaki entered the motorcycle market of the Philippines in 1974. Under the parent company 'Kawasaki Heavy Industries' motorcycle and engine division, Kawasaki Motors Philippines is serving the country. The subsidiary has its headquarters at Alabang of Muntinlupa City in the Philippines. Hisashi Nishizawa honors the chair of president of Kawasaki Philippines at present. Kawasaki Philippines produces commuter bikes, leisure bikes, etc. Besides, Bajaj motorcycles and apparels are also in their product line. That is to say that they are the official assembler and distributor of Bajaj Company in the Philippines. Kawasaki Philippines does manufacture not only motorcycles/their parts but also bicycles and their parts.
In their history of almost five decades, Kawasaki Motors Philippines introduced many models and bikes in the Philippino market. Some of them got discontinued, and some of them are still in the current product lineup. Among the current models, there are some business models, some standard models, and some cruisers. Some original motorcycles from Kawasaki that are in the current lineup are:
The Barako: The motorcycle was first introduced in 2004 and is continued in the market. It is a four-stroke engine of 177 ccs. There are two models available for this bike- Kick starter only and Kick starter + Electric model.

Kawasaki also assembles some Bajaj models such as the Avenger, the CT100, the CT100B, the CT 100P, the Discover, some models from the Rouser lineup, etc. Kawasaki has discontinued some of its motorcycles in the Philippines. Some of them are due to legislation rules, some due to market loss, and so on. Some of these discontinued products are the AR-80K, the AR-80F, the Aura Classic and Nexus, the Fury (the previous Gen bike), and Fury R, some of the HD lineup, etc.
Kawasaki's stay in the Philippines has crossed fifty successful years. However, the primary production time started after 1996, when KHI became the controller of the company. In the present time, Kawasaki Philippines produces somewhat over 18,000 motorcycle units each month in its Muntinlupa plant. The plant exports and manufactures power products and other components, not to mention its repairing and spare part service. In the Philippines, Kawasaki has spread its network nationwide with over two thousand dealers and stores. Kawasaki is now the top seller of heavy-duty tricycles in the Philippines. The company has taken targets of motorcycles for the everyday lifestyle. Kawasaki keeps its traditional values in the center of its production and is rising beyond that.
The straight motorcycle bodies in the 1960s and '70s converted to curvy ones in the present decade. Kawasaki has had some unique and extensive bikes throughout these years. In this period of 50+ years, there have been some revolutionary changes in engines and motorcycles. Kawasaki hugged those revolutions and implied accordingly in their models. Here are some of the famous models from Kawasaki throughout the years:
B8 lineup: The B8 series from Kawasaki is an evergreen lineup of bikes. Like the B7 lineup, their predecessor, the B8 series, got quite popular in a short time for their low cost and long-lasting durability. Some of the popular models from the B8 series are the B8125 and the B8M.
The W1 650: This bike from the popular W1 series was first launched in 1966. Its performance and durability made it highly famous in the Japanese market. Kawasaki targeted the US market through the export of this model and achieved some success.
The H1 500: The H1 model from 1969 was famous for its high-performance cylinder. It was recognized as the fastest accelerating street bike in the world. Kawasaki managed to achieve the designing goal of 120 bhp per liter through this model. However, beyond its high performance and fame, the model was out of the market for legislation causes due to its noise and emission in 1976.
Racing Bikes of the 1980s: Kawasaki produced some racing bikes in the years from 1971 to 1979. The H1R500 rode by Dave Simmonds was the first of this line. Dave Simmonds himself took part in developing the motorcycle. With this bike, he won the 500cc Grand Prix in Barcelona; the first race won by Kawasaki. Inspired by this event, Kawasaki came forward to producing more racing giants. As a result, we got the H2R, the KR250, the KR750, etc. These racing motorcycles brought some great wins for Kawasaki.
In the same decade, Kawasaki brought some commuter motorcycles too. Kawasaki was testing some new machinery and technologies on their bikes at that time. As a result, we see some significant modifications in those motorcycles. Some of those motorcycles were the H2 750, the Z1 900, the Z650 B1, the Z1-R, the Z1300, etc. The Z650 B1 was named the 'Prince of the Princess' at its launch in 1977. The KT250 Trials by Kawasaki became quite popular at that time for off-road sport.
Kawasaki in the next decades: The motorcycle designs at the starting of the decade were similar to that of the previous decade. However, there was a considerable evolution in innovation in the later years. The Z1000H, the AR50, the AE80 were some of the bikes in the early years of the decade. There were some superbike models as well in those years. In and after 1984, the GPz lineup achieved quite a fame. After 1990, the motorcycles got a modern look. The KX500, the VN800, the ZX-7R, the W650, etc. are some of the popular bikes from the 2000s.
After 2000, the Ninja series was top-rated. Ninja250 R, Ninja ZX-12R, and Ninja ZX-10R were some of the popular Ninja motorcycles. Besides, the 1400GTR, the ZX-6R, etc. had a stunning look to attract everyone. The KX250F was a perfect motorcycle for off-road rides. In the current years, the Ninja series is top-rated. Besides, some motorcycles of the Z series has also earned the name.
