Kawasaki applied for another trademark for the Meguro name with the European Union Intellectual Property Office On January 14, – for use with “two-wheeled engine vehicles; bikes; bikes; auxiliary parts for cruisers.” Last week it has submitted likewise comparable applications for the Meguro name inNew Zealand, Australia, the U.S. furthermore, the Philippines.

Meguro’s Heritage

Meguro name possesses an exceptional place in of the Japanese engine industry.In 1930s, the Meguro Manufacturing Company began its movement by putting resources into Harley-Davidson after the Wall Street Crash in 1929 in the USA. Subsequent to accepting control of some of H-D’s technology,Meguro started assembling gearboxes and after that its very own cruisers. During the 1950s, Meguro began building duplicates of the BSA A7 with a 651cc Parallel-Twin motor. Also, for some time, Meguro was the second-biggest bike producer simply behind Honda.



In 1960,Kawasaki Heavy Industries acquired an interest Meguro – and later, in 1963, expected full control.Kawasaki continued to manufacture BSA clones, most remarkably the Meguro K and Kawasaki K lineups, and in 1965 Kawasaki began creating the W1, the forerunner to the cutting edge W-show. In this manner, returning of the Meguro name ought to be viewed principally as the longing of Kawasaki to grow the scope of its retro models.

Likewise, keep in mind that Kawasaki retro models are additionally displayed by the Z900RS lineup. What’s more, if the specialty of the medium-cubic retro bicycles has for quite some time been involved by Triumph, for example, the section for the tenderfoots is nearly not spoken to by significant brands. In the USA you will be offered the Cleveland CycleWerks models, in England – Mutt, Mash or Bullit, in Italy – FB Mondial.

Therefore, purchasers have a fairly explicit decision – either old (not really utilized) Japanese bicycles like the SR400, or new Chinese ones of locally get together. In the event that Kawasaki will extend its retro-line with worldwide models under the Meguro name, we will have a sound option. The main condition – the sticker prices to be dislike on account of the W800 ($9,799).

Presently Kawasaki has three cruisers in the W line: W175 – for India and Asia, W250 – otherwise called Estrella, W800 – recently refreshed lead.
