The Meguro brand may sound unfamiliar, but it's the brand that first gave Kawasaki the debut into the world of motorcycle manufacturing. Kawasaki has been around as an industrial manufacturing company since 1896, but the Japanese giant first got into motorcycles only in the 1960s, after it acquired Meguro, a motorcycle brand that has been in existence since the 1930s. The Meguro T1 Senior, a motorcycle from 1960s, is said to be the inspiration for Kawasaki's W-series motorcycles. The last time a Meguro motorcycle rolled off a production line was in 1969, so it's been over 50 years and now the Meguro brand comes alive again.
