An All-New Mule With More Kick
Founded in 1878 by inventor Showza Kawasaki, the Kawasaki brand got its start, oddly enough, in shipbuilding. They hit the ocean with their first ship in 1897. In 1911, Kawasaki produced its first train, in 1922 their first airplane, and in 1969, their iconic first motorcycle. Since that time, Kawasaki has also become a global leader in the production of rail cars, robotics, loaders, gas turbines, and bullet trains. Kawasaki Motors Manufacturing (KMM) began production in Lincoln, Nebraska in 1974. Today, every Kawasaki ATV, UTV, PWC, and rail car rolls out of the same plant that has been employing Nebraskans for forty years!
