It's kinda funny how people reply to threads years after the last reply . It kind of reminds of when I'm talking to my mom. I'll ask her a question like "What's for breakfast?" and like 2 mins. later she's like "What?" .

Q: what's for lunch and dinner?
A: ... what ... ? (6 years delay)
I think the Kawasaki that is alive today is not the same Kawasaki Japan in the past. The Taiwanese bought the company in 1986? In the past Kawasaki models were designed and made in Japan. They invented the world's first carbon graphite shaft, and that model was the 82. This was pre-Yonex Carbonex 7 era. That is what I've gathered. Anyone got a photo of the 82 to share?

Kawasaki has been owned by a Chinese company in Shen Zhen (China) since 2002. I got the following info from the url: http://www.gmdu.net/corp-865089.html. They seemed very determined to revive the glory days and have invested quite a bit in the business.
Shenzhen Chuanqi (KAWASAKI) Sports Co.,Ltd was founded in 2002. We have formed KAWASAKI brand which is famous for badminton products. Today, we are in charge of Kawasaki badminton rackets, badminton shoes and apparel manufacturing, selling and after-sales service.In 2009, we built more than 2,000 sports goods stores throughout China. Kawasaki has been engaged in the research and development of badminton and tennis products. We have also developed specialized and automatic production equipment, which has helped establish systematic and professional production procedures, realizing excellence in research and production of various badminton and tennis products.

Here you can see from a tennis racket the good old fashioned "K" logo of Kawasaki Racket Co. Ltd (10-6, 1-Chome, Ryogoku Sumida-ku - Tokyo, Japan). It has the slight curve on its spine one the left. Can't find a badminton racket to show this, sorry.
Around 1981 I believe, the old logo was updated to this modern logo. It was still registered under Kawasaki of Japan. All products bearing this logo should be from this era. Sleuthing fun!
