In the 1970’s Japan competed with American motorcycle manufacturers by bringing more efficient, more reliable and less expensive motorcycles to the North American market and the rest of the world. For the past two decades, Kawasaki Ninja and other Japanese brands have enjoyed extraordinary success. Most dealers that offered Kawasaki motorcycles for sale gained instant success.

It is the most produced motorized vehicle in the world.
In 2018, Honda has started to release its electric 2-wheelers – iconic club and the more modern PCX scooter. The removable battery options are available in Asia. On the other hand, Kawasaki has taken a different route in spite of the long history of winning races and pleasing customers. Kawasaki is finally joining the fray with a product that supports the theory that the future of motorcycles is the electric bikes.
