Kawasaki is one of the ‘Big Four’ powerhouse Japanese motorcycle manufacturers. Motorcycles are just a small part of this 140-year-old company’s ventures. They were the first of the ‘Big Four’ to build a purpose-built off-road racing machine and played a pivotal role in bringing the sport of motocross to a new audience. Never afraid to push the boundaries of technology, regardless of the success of the innovation, Kawasaki has continued to remain at the forefront of competition. In this look back at 6 decades of Kawasaki Dirt Bike history, I have included many of the memorable motocross and dual sport bikes that had a significant impact at the time. It is by no means a complete list, there are far too many fantastic models to include in one post.
