IRVINE, Calif. — Kawasaki is celebrating 50 years in the U.S. in 2016. The company noted in a press release that yesterday exactly 50 years prior, on March 1, 1966, American Kawasaki Motorcycle Corp. (AKMC) opened for business in Chicago. The company resided in a modest sales office at 208 South La Salle Street and a two-story parts warehouse at 2860 North Lincoln Avenue. Formerly the site of a meat-packing plant, the warehouse needed serious renovation, but the price was right for a company trying to gain a toehold in a vast new country. Welcomed by Tony Watanabe with Ted Tazaki, who led the charge to establish the Chicago office, just 50 people attended the grand opening, held at the nearby Continental Hotel. But it was the right crowd, including the banks, trading companies and distributors that would support the company’s early efforts in America.
