Team Green

Kawasaki is widely recognized as being the first of the ‘Big Four’ to build a purpose-built off-road racing machine and played a pivotal role in bringing the sport of motocross to a new audience via the “Team Green” concept which created an inclusive family-based racing environment.

The 1963 Kawasaki B8-M, a motocross version of the B8 street machine was the first production motocross machine from Japan that won the Hyogo MX Championship in 1962 creating the so-called “Red-Tank Furore”. It marked the start of a Kawasaki dirt bike legacy that evolved into the long-running KX motocross series.

By the mid 1970’s Kawasaki was selling and promoting to off-road fans under the famous KX name for motocross. The 1975 KX250 stands out as one of Kawasaki’s most serious off-road commitments to date and is among their first motorcycle designed specifically for world championship class of motocross racing.
