Kawasaki Z900RS – True Spirit

The Kawasaki Z900RS revives the true heritage of the original iconic Z900. Powered by a very responsive 948cc inline 4 cylider engine that is equipped from standard with an  assisted lightweight slipper clutch, this engine not only delivers an exciting 110+ bhp of punch but sounds awesome too.

The chassis of the Z900RS with it's upside down forks, horizontal back link rear shock absorber and light weight cast aluminium wheels offers excellent handling characteristics.

Twin mode traction control on the Kawasaki Z900RS ensures that not only does the bike deliver safe and consistent forward propulsion, it also helps enormously towards the life expectancy of the tyres.

The Z900RS ABS braking system comprises of 300mm twin brake discs, gripped by a pair of radially mounted calipers that are controlled by a radial-pump front brake master cylinder offer uncomprimised levels of braking with minimal effort required by the rider.

The classic looking dual dial instrument panel that consists of an analogue speedo and tachometer also houses a multifunction LCD screen that balance the retro looks with modern functionality.

The Kawasaki Z900RS comes with a two year unlimited mileage warranty. Please talk to our staff to find out more about the Kawasaki factory warranty extension to four years that is available or have a look at the warranty tab on this page.
