The Kawasaki G5 was a dual-purpose motorcycle manufactured by Kawasaki from 1972 through 1975 sharing the Kawasaki 100cc stable with the Kawasaki G4TR. A very decent trail or off-road bike, the G5 had sufficient power and torque. In many ways, it filled the 100cc gap in the F-series. The G5 was replaced by the Kawasaki KE100 in 1976.
