The Kawasaki F7 was a 175cc dual-purpose motorcycle manufactured by Kawasaki from 1971 through 1975. It was the larger brother of the Kawasaki F6 125cc and had the general overall appearance of the Kawasaki F4 and Kawasaki F5. It was a very good Enduro motorcycle with its higher horsepower for its class, enclosed carburetor to keep out dirt and water and sufficient ground clearance.

The noticeable changes from the Kawasaki F6 were: (a) A blue matrix fuel tank decal and "175" decal on the oil reservoir. (b) Aluminum cylinder head. (c) CDI ignition system. (d) Hatta adjustable fork.
