The first Kawasaki motorcycle sold in the United States did not bear the Japanese name, almost as if the esteemed manufacturing conglomerate did not want to sully its Meguro Motorcycles brand with a two-wheeled flop abroad (some of those bikes were essentially copies of BSA models). Instead, in 1966, the company released an underpowered, two-stroke bike, rebranded as an Omega.

It was not an auspicious beginning, but by 1968, the Kawasaki name was prominently displayed on faster bikes, the Avenger and the Samurai, and in 1969, the company released its 500cc Mach III, cementing its reputation for producing motorcycles with a need for speed and making it a worthy competitor to Yamaha and Honda. Kawasaki bikes of note in the 1970s include the 900 Z 1 Super 4 and 250 S 1 Mach I in 1972, and the Z 1000 in 1977.
