Kawasaki motorycles are manufactured by the Motorcycle & Engine division of Kawasaki Heavy Industries at plants in Japan, USA, Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand. The motorcycles have been produced since 1954.
Kawasaki Aircraft initially manufactured motorcycles under the Meguro Works name, but later formed Kawasaki Motor Sales. Some motorcycles display an emblem with "Kawasaki Aircraft" on the fuel tank.
In 1963, Kawasaki and Meguro merged to form Kawasaki Motorcycle Co.,Ltd.
