Kawasaki Heavy Industries was already a supplier of proprietary engines and manufacturer of complete machines under the Meihatsu name when in 1962 it introduced the first Kawasaki-badged model, the 125cc B8, descendants of which would be produced up to 1980. Launched in July 1971, the F11 formed part of Kawasaki's expanding range of off-road models and was significant as it marked a switch to piston control of the induction phase, the preceding disc valve having been dropped. This placed the carburettor our of harm's way and at the same time narrowed the engine. The F11 was produced up to the end of 1975, its place in the Kawasaki line-up being taken by the KE250. This beautifully restored F11 formed part of a private collection in Glen Rock, Pennsylvania, USA together with several other motorcycles and cars until the owner decided to thin out his collection. Imported into the UK in March 2015 and described by the vendor as in generally excellent condition, it comes with US title, customs document and NOVA declaration to facilitate an application to register it as an imported vehicle. The F11 was never officially imported into the UK and they are rare in this country; certainly there can be few as nice as this one.
