|Kawasaki, like many self-respecting motorcycle manufacturers make, or brand, bicycles (also known as push bikes). Kawasaki's bicycles are mostly children bikes, but now they got one that is a "serious" sportsbike, a bicycle that looks a bit like daddy's or mummy's Kawasaki sports motorcycle. |
So now your kids can emulate you.... and get used to living the life of the green team.

|Bajaj, KTM and Kawasaki are in an ideal position to join forces to conquer the motorcycle world. They are all already tied up in some shape or another, and could complement each other in the global market place, making it a force to be reckoned with. |
Add to that the fact that Volkswagen is on the motorcycle manufacturer trail, look at the Bajaj logo and the Volkswagen logo, and we might just end up with world's largest motorcycle manufacturer: VolksKawaBajKTM (or whatever the name).
Here's a short analysis.

Can it be made any easier ? It's like having your private wrench !
