Overview

Japanese Universal Motorcycle

Homage to the original Kawasaki Classic.

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.

Concept

A True Spirit

Heritage, character and authenticity.

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.

Design

Unmistakable Shapes

Beautiful classic features. 

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.

Engine

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.
