Founded in 1896, Japanese brand Kawasaki has established itself as a key contender in the motorcycle market. It also offers a range of leisure vehicles including ATVs, side-by-sides and Jet Skis. Though Kawasaki doesn’t have its own financing, it partners with lenders like Sheffield Financial and Synchrony Bank to offer special deals to buyers.
There are a few ways to finance your Kawasaki — from motorcycle and personal loans to applying directly through a dealer.
As always, the exact rates and terms you qualify for will depend on your creditworthiness and personal financial situation.
Yes, Kawasaki has a special discount for members of the US military. If you’re an active-duty servicemember, reservist or retiree, you may be eligible for up to $250 off a new Kawasaki. The motorcycle brand also runs seasonal promotions throughout the year. Past offers have included $400 off qualifying side-by-side vehicles, $100 off select youth ATVs and off-road vehicles and 0% APR financing for one year when using your Kawasaki Credit Card.*
*Rates as of November 29, 2018.

Kawasaki created the Jet Ski, and it’s also known for its durable side-by-side vehicles and ATVs.
Yes, but the exact length of your warranty depends on the model you buy. Most motorcycles and all ATVs have a one-year limited warranty. Kawasaki side-by-side models have a three-year limited warranty, while Jet Skis come with no warranty at all.
This covers any defective material or workmanship, but repairs needs to be done at an authorized Kawasaki dealer within the US — excluding Hawaii. You’re on the hook for towing and transportation costs, however.
While this bare-bones warranty isn’t the most exceptional coverage out there, it does provide a little recourse if there are defects on your bike or other Kawasaki vehicle.
If you’re looking for a durable bike, ATV or watercraft, Kawasaki likely made it to the top of your list. Though its prices are higher than some of the competition, you have several financing options to consider — from motorcycle and personal loans to dealer financing or applying for a Kawasaki Credit Card. And you could score a discount depending on what seasonal promotions are available.
