Probably not a 'Kona' bike, or at least from the Kona bike manufacturer we all know today. The bike looks like a late 70s, early 80s design. Kona started out making MTB bikes in 88 (name changed to Kona in late 88).

If the decal is original then maybe it was a model name??

Cool looking bike though cool

It's a Kobe brand bike.
Kobe was actually a US company that had bicycles manufactured for them in Japan and Hong Kong. They jumped onto the bicycle boom bandwagon in the mid-1970s. Like most Japanease manufactured bicycles of the period, they are well designed, nicely manufactured, sturdy and dependable.
