|More Information on the Kawasaki KE Models|
The Kawasaki KE100 is a dual-sport motorcycle that was produced by Kawasaki from 1976 to 2001. A direct successor to the G5, the major changes on the KE100 were different ergonomics and a change in transmission layout (1-N-2-3-4-5 to the G5's N-1-2-3-4-5). The KE100 did not change much through the years, although minor changes were made to the engine and transmission over successive model years, as well as a switch to different tanks after the B4 model. It uses an oil injection system that Kawasaki calls "superlube" to both eliminate fuel-mixing and give a precise fuel-oil mixture in the two-stroke cycle, reducing emissions enough that the KE100 still passes US emissions tests. Its fuel tank has a capacity of 2.5 US gal (9.5 l; 2.1 imp gal) and includes two small hooks on the rear of the frame that can be used either to mount turn signals or to tie or "bungee" a spare fuel tank for longer journeys.
