Motor Bikes of Kawasaki

By: ivory18

From Kawasaki Company one tells again at 1924, this time implied in the metallurgy and the aircraft industry. In 1949, they decided to write the industry of motor bike producing the engines which could be adapted to the motor bikes. FIRST engines of motor bike of ? of PRODUCTS of MOTOR BIKES of KAWASAKI

In their line you could find a two-race of 60 DC, as well as the engines a 150cc and a 250cc at four times developed with the technology of BMW; company which with them had had reports/ratios since their beginnings in the aircraft industry. It was not until 1954 that the motor bikes of Kawasaki produced their first complete motor bike under the name of Meihatsu (a subsidiary company of plane Co. from Kawasaki). Almost at the same time, they also tried to present their own line of the scooters at the market, but they realized soon that they could not compete with the two giants of the industry of scooters during these days: the rabbit of Fuji and the silver plated pigeon of Mitsubishi.

And maintaining before continuing motor bikes history of Kawasaki, I must make a large digression...

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON the HISTORY OF the MOTOR BIKES OF KAWASAKI We cannot speak about Kawasaki without mentioning another mark which will help certainly Kawasaki to become like Honda, Suzuki, and Yamaha one of the large players in the Japanese scene of motor bikes:

--> motor bikes of Meguro: better knowledge of the fact time as "elder makes and the king of four races". Meguro wrote the industry of motor bike in 1937. Having a good relationship with the government, the people at Meguro benefitted from the orders of army. Their first motor bike was Z97: a motor bike of the tumbler-valve 500cc influenced by Swiss Motosacoche. It is worth the sorrow to mention this model was a success for the factory and Z97 was in the production until the years '50. Along the years, Meguro produced some 250cc very nice and the tumbler-valve 350cc, simple cylinder model as well as of the twins of high output.

All with a very strong influence of the English. Then and thanks to commercial success they lived, they also launched a tumbler-valve 125 DC for their cooker and a twin cylinder 650cc of low end to accompany the already existing 500cc. But it took place in 1958, when Meguro tested debarasser of their British influence, when the things started to turn badly... Based on a prototype of profit of frame Asama (one of the greatest races which time), the motor bikes of Meguro produced three nice and elegant machines with the air camshaft: the 125cc E3, the 250cc F and the 350cc Y A. Malheureusement these bicycles proved to be too heavy and did not obtain the attention of the purchasers. Meguro will return soon to the models of valve of tumbler.

The motor bikes of Meguro remained as a one of the 10 principal manufacturers up to 1960, but because of some bad decisions, as those mentioned above, the company started to refuse and was bought soon by Kawasaki. In Meguro 1960 signed a first agreement with motor bikes of Kawasaki, and in 1962 they had completely disappeared. ....

And this brings to us again to the motor bikes of Kawasaki... In 1960, the company decides to give a serious push to the division of motor bike of the planes of Kawasaki: They take out of the market the mark of Meihatsu, they build their own factory of low end and low actuated machines and buy Meguro. These brilliant movements and decisions encouraged Kawasaki of the motor bikes to have one of the range of models on the market. The motor bikes of Kawasaki could offer to this moment (the Sixties) one to crush black-scooter 50cc with a twin motor bike powerful, at end high and beautiful of cylinder of 650 DC.

Its as important to mention as because it them very to have nature, motor bikes of Kawasaki always played the part of the franc-tireur in industry and as a feeling of the independence of their principal competitors was always present. Since then, much of stories were written, much of models were produced and much of races were gained on motor bikes of Kawasaki, the truth is...

Nowadays the motor bikes of Kawasaki east one of the principal players in industry and after their tradition, they nowadays offer a range of products for the all needs and tastes pleasant.
