That's so cool! Today I learned (TIL). Thanks for sharing this. Who's with me in wanting a "How it's Made" episode but all about the VN750?Fun fact: The Kawasaki Vulcan 750 was most likely not engineered with just pencil and paper alone. Large scale automotive CAD dates back further than 1985.
In fact, AutoCAD was introduced in '82, so it's more than reasonable to speculate that the Vulcan was engineered with the assistance of computers, especially when you consider that it's a Japanese product.
Just for fun:

Even more interesting is that 3D printing dates back to at least 1980, although there's evidence regarding the potential and the process going back even further than that.
