In 2002, Kawasaki and Suzuki joined forces to compete against the motorcycle juggernaut Honda. The deal was they would manufacture vehicles for each other, fleshing out each others product line, while playing on the individual design strengths that they each possessed. The marriage of these two companies isn't working out for consumers and hasn't led to increased sales. Both companies will stop making motorcycles and quads for each other by 2007. We had our doubts about the ultimate success of this partnership early on.
