Kawasaki Z900RS and its sister version Kawasaki Z900RS Cafe are a Kawasaki love letter to the original 1972 Kawasaki Z1 and 1976 Kawasaki Z2, not only did the original bikes brake multiple records they also are considered some of the most influential and defining motorcycles of all time. Building a motorcycle that would be a fitting homage to the original was no easy task. However to much delight of the motorcycling community Kawasaki has done an outstanding job. The Z900RS doesn’t only work as a “Retro” bike. In its own right it is a spectacular bike that puts many of the contemporary supernakeds to shame. The Z900RS SE now takes all of this a step further. Excellence improved. THE ORDER BOOK IS NOW OPEN FOR 2023 PRODUCTION.
There’s no place for fake in the lifestyle you choose. Kawasaki alone has the heritage to deliver yesterday’s values to today’s riders in a truly authentic Modern Classic bike. The visceral spirit of a 1970s legend – Kawasaki’s original king of cool Z1 – finds expression in the Z900RS, to satisfy the very essence of the rider you are now.
As the Classic and Retro style bikes gained popularity throughout the 2010’s Kawasaki realised that they have to respond to the growing segment. They also realised they will need to take their bike’s style and quality to another level to make a real impact within the modern retro category. With gorgeous paint schemes, closely replicating the original patterns, countless details, such as tear drop shaped tank, “duckbill” tail, analogue clocks, air cooling like fins on the side of the engine and stainless steel polished exhaust to name just a few, it’s safe to say that Kawasaki has created something really special. They have fulfilled their task extremely well, designing a spectacular bike that turns heads wherever it arrives.
An Öhlins rear unit and re-tuned front suspension plus other detail touches match the visceral spirit of a 1970s legend, the iconic Z1. Looks, show and go, the Z900RS SE has it all.
Master of all
Perfect balance of usability and performance.
Beating heart of the Kawasaki Z900RS is the 948cc inline four cylinder engine, used on the Z1000, Z1000SX and the Versys 1000, but with reduced size by 100cc. Engine was designed to replicate the sound and character of the original. Kawasaki Z900RS engine produces 111bhp at 8500 rpm and 98nm of torque at 6500rpm, making for a brilliant road bike engine, with very strong low and mid range torque, with plenty of top end thrills. Furthermore to ensure easy and pleasant operation, Kawasaki Assisted Slipper clutch is equipped on the Z900RS making for a featherlight operation.
Drawing from Kawasaki’s collection of legendary machines, the Z900RS SE’s styling is reminiscent of the iconic “Yellow Ball,” a black and yellow version of the orange and brown “Fireball” paint of the original Z1.
A first for Kawasaki
Gorgeous exhaust note
While Kawasaki In-Line Four engines are historically renowned for their great-sounding exhausts, this the first time that Kawasaki has conducted sound research to craft a model’s ideal exhaust note. Designed to elicit rider response, the sound tuning focused on the engine’s initial roar to life, idling and low-speed riding where the rider is best able to enjoy the exhaust’s deep rumble.
Enhanced riding experience
Contributing to rider reassurance, the Z900RS SE is equipped with advanced Kawasaki rider support technology. KTRC features two modes that cover a wide range of riding conditions, offering either enhanced sport riding performance or the peace of mind to negotiate slippery surfaces with confidence. Riders may also elect to turn the system off.
Superb stopping power
Front brake package with Brembo components (discs, calipers, pads) offers stronger stopping power and contributes to even more precise control and greater ease of use.
