Kawasaki makes its long-awaited entry into the retro category with the all-new Z900RS. Conceived as an homage to the legendary Z1, it is powered by a liquid-cooled 900cc-class In-Line Four – an engine choice that makes the Z900RS unique in this category.
The newest Z is a synthesis of the traditional and the modern. An engine with a traditional In-Line Four configuration is backed by Kawasaki’s latest rider support technology, the engine and frame design both benefit from the latest in advanced analysis technology, and carefully crafted styling elements are complemented by high-tech features like LED lighting and digital instrumentation.
DUAL-DIAL INSTRUMENTATION WITH MULTI-FUNCTION LCDAnalogue-style speedometer and tachometer dials are complemented by a multi-functional LCD screen, balancing retro-style looks with modern functionality.
ROUND LED HEADLAMPA blend of retro and modern designs, the large ø170 mm LED headlamp casts a bright, white light for great night-time visibility. It features six chambers (four for low-beam, two for high-beam).
STRONG, SMOOTH IN-LINE FOUR ENGINELike the Z1, the Z900RS features a 900cc-class In-Line Four – an engine configuration that inherently offers a great balance of power and manageability. Tuning focuses on the low-mid range.
HORIZONTAL BACK-LINK REAR SUSPENSIONOffers a higher level of sporty riding potential – something that Kawasaki engineers were not willing to sacrifice. Like the fork, the linked rear suspension delivers a balance of ride comfort and sporty performance.
SPOKE-STYLE CAST WHEELSDesigned using Kawasaki’s advanced analysis technology, the wheels offer a balance of light weight and stylish looks, contributing to both handling and a design suited to the retro category.
ICONIC TEARDROP TANKThe centrepiece of the Z900RS’ design, the beautiful teardrop fuel tank is reminiscent of the Z1. The frame was completely redesigned to accommodate the tank’s ideal position and slim shape.
