    The Kawasaki production was banned / discontinued (per my info) in 1992-93 so the last models came in were 93-94. Since its almost 14-15 year so the bikes disappear or are in lesser amount.
    Also coz of petrol prices we can only see lots of CD-70's on road.

    I think it was two stroke issue or what?

    I was a kawasaki fan and always enjoyed the GTO's 100,110 and 125

    even older models with one gear at front and 4 at back were a treat to drive and were hard t beat by any other 100 cc bike of that time

    big loss of old memories

    Diffrent aspects as compared to other manufacturers are as below,

    1) Relatively more fuel consumption
    2) Slightly high price
    3) Spare parts were bit expensive bcoz of unavailablity of local parts & due to rapid change in models just in 10 Years (Examle in 100CC category are 100 Sports, 100 Super, 100 ELS, 100 ESX, & GTO 100). while the counter part Yamaha YB 100 is still running wid same PArts & Chassis etc.
    4) Above mentioned factors leads towards poor resale of brand & we all know that poor resale means no or minute existance in next 10 years

    I heard that Kawaskies were really fast for Police bikers & they weren't able to catch them. So, banned. :-)

    Parts, fuel consumption & High price as compared to the competitors were the main reasons.

    the kawasaki's have dissapeared only in pak...in the outside world they are among the front runners...the problem with us is that we dont really appriciate something good when it comes to our country and come up with this line...

    MAIN TAY HONDA HI LAYSAAN...

    such attitude has restricted good companies from doing business here

    This is what happens when a company or two have established their monopoly in the market. The quality stuff stays away and the customers have to do compromise on selection..

    Another dig!

    I thought the Kawasaki's were banned because of the brakes they had. I heard that with their speed and brakes and youngsters.... its formed a deadly trio and hence no more Kawasakis! Wonder if thats true.
