Check out this vintage Kawasaki in case you were not aware that Kawi built airplanes before bikes.

It's a Ki-61 Tony, circa WW2 war bird.

Wonder if it would keep up with my V-650? :wink2:
Probably not going up the Stelvio pass - but then again, if I had to go inverted, I'd take the plane any day :)

..and now my mind can't stop picturing someone trying to get a WW2 fighter plane up an italian mountain pass.

When folks think of the Premier Japanese manufacturer Honda most often comes to mind but Kawasaki is actually the biggest Gorilla on the block and this by a pretty good margin.

Honda Yamaha and Suzuki are all small potatoes compared to Kawasaki.
