|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.
Kawasaki and Meguro merged to form Kawasaki Motorcycle Co.,Ltd. Kawasaki motorcycles from 1962 through 1967
used an emblem which can be described as a flag within a wing. Work continued on the Meguro K1, a copying of the
BSA A7 500cc vertical twin and on the Kawasaki W1. By the mid-1960s, Kawasaki was finally importing a moderate
number of motorcycles to the US. The Kawasaki H1 Mach III in 1968 along with several enduro-styled motorcycles to
compete with Yamaha, Suzuki and Honda increased sales of Kawasaki units.
