Kawasaki Z900 2018

Kawasaki Z900 & Z900 Performance Reborn - Refined Raw

The Kawasaki Z900 power plant is essentially a sleeved down Z1000 engine. Tried, tested and now less stressed than ever. The chassis comprises of a new steel trellis frame derived from the technological experience gained during the design and production of the mighty H2R giving Kawasaki the ability to tune the frame of the Z900 enhancing feedback to the rider.

The combination of the trademark Kawasaki petal discs and Bosch ABS braking system guarantees safe and consistent stopping power.

Overall the Kawasaki Z900 is some 20 Kg (3 Stone!) lighter than the Z1000 so the power to weight ratio that Kawasaki have achieved for the Z900 is awesome.

This sleek, lighter and lower chassis means that the Z900 will fit a much broader range of rider sizes but also results in a lower centre of gravity for the bike. Aided by the underslung pre-chamber of the exhaust pipe, the mass centralisation results in an exceptionally nimble and agile chassis that is a joy to push through the tightest of bends.

The Kawasaki Z900 from head to tail is unmistakably "Z". The aggressive poised animalistic stance is typical of any of the bikes in the Kawasaki "Z" family. It's family brand proudly lit up in the LED rear light. What you see gives you an idea of the type of ride you will experience when you throw your leg over the Z900. The surprise is how smooth and controllable this beast really is. Pussycat or raging Tiger? It's all down to rider demands.

Want an exciting ride that will most certainly turn heads when you arrive? The Kawasaki Z900 will not dissapoint. There has never been a better time to step into the family of "Zed".

The Z900 Performance is enhanced with a taller sports screen, colour coded seat cowl and an Akrapovic exhaust.

The Kawasaki Z900 comes with a two year unlimited mileage warranty. Please talk to our staff to find out more about the factory warranty extension to four years that is available or have a look at the warranty tab on this page.

Kawasaki warrants products with extended warranty to be free of manufacturing defects for an additional 24 months from the expiry date of the original manufacturer's warranty. The following products can be covered for private use* only:

Street-legal Motorcycles**

* Private use - a private user is defined as "any person who is acting for purposes which are not related to his trade, business or profession".

** Street-legal Motorcycles - only models sold as street legal by Kawasaki Motors UK may be covered.

Warranty Terms and Conditions

If, within the extended warranty period, a failure occurs which is determined by Kawasaki to be caused by a manufacturing defect, Kawasaki will, at its discretion, arrange for the repair or replacement of the necessary parts at no cost to the customer. This can be carried out by any authorised Kawasaki Dealer. However, it is recommended that repairs and servicing are done by the original selling dealer who has a full history and knowledge of each product they have sold.

Note the following terms used throughout this document:

  • 'Kawasaki' = Kawasaki Motors Europe N.V.
  • 'Dealer' = Official Kawasaki dealer authorised for the relevant product group.

This warranty contains obligations and exclusions solely on the part of Kawasaki Motors Europe N.V. and not on the part of any dealer.

Nothing in this document shall be construed as an agency between Kawasaki and any of its authorised dealers or their staff.

Under current EU Consumer Law, customers have certain statutory rights contained within legislation governing the sale of goods to consumers (private users). This warranty does not in any way detract from or affect the statutory rights of the customer.

  • This warranty is only valid within European countries, which have official Kawasaki authorised representation for the product(s) concerned.

Warranty Exclusions

Kawasaki will not accept responsibility if, in its sole opinion, the part or parts require repair or replacement as a direct result of:

a) Alteration from standard specification in a manner, which affects the performance, durability or safety of the product or any of its component parts or genuine Kawasaki accessories, e.g.:

  1. The fitting of non-genuine Kawasaki parts or accessories, unless these are recommended or approved in writing by Kawasaki;
  2. Modifications or adjustments not recommended or approved in writing by Kawasaki.

b) The use of lubricating oils, fuel or other fluids (including cleaning materials) which are not in accordance with the recommendations contained in the owner's manual.

c) Improper uses, improper repair (this includes fitting of non-genuine or 'pattern' parts), accidental or fire damage and contamination by or submergence in water.

d) Deterioration due to normal wear and tear in service. The warranty does not cover routine service adjustment or normal replacement of service items (such as oils, fluids, spark plugs and filters), or wear and tear items (such as batteries, brake and clutch friction materials, drive chains or belts and tyres, cables and bearings). However, such items are covered if replacement is required as a direct result of a manufacturing or material defect.

e) Any competitive racing or related use.

f) Any damage or consequential damage caused by accident or by owner's or operator's neglect or abuse.

g) Improper storage or deterioration from the elements.

The warranty may not apply if:

i) The periodic maintenance and servicing is not carried out by an authorised Kawasaki dealer at the appropriate intervals specified in the relevant owner's manual. Evidence of this servicing must be produced, if requested, at the time of any warranty claim. It is the owner's responsibility to ensure the service record book is kept up to date by the servicing dealer. It is advisable also to keep copies of any service or repair invoices in case the book is lost.

ii) Any problem experienced is not reported to a Kawasaki Dealer within a reasonable time or the motorcycle is not properly inspected by that dealer. The owner should take all possible steps to prevent further damage as soon as any problem is apparent. Any consequential damage that is caused by the continued use of the product after a problem has been identified may not be covered by this warranty.

The warranty covers private use only. The warranty will not apply if the unit is used for any business or commercial purpose.

The following items are not covered:

  • Cables
  • Batteries

Exciting In-Line Four Engine

Powerful 948 cm3 liquidcooled, 4-stroke In-line Four engine has a quick-revving character and a strong midrange hit that pulls strongly to the redline. Adding to rider exhilaration, a distinct intake note encourages you to twist the throttle. Silky smooth power delivery facilitates control while contributing to rider comfort and confidence.  

Die Cast Cylinders

Die-cast cylinder offers an ideal balance of weight and rigidity. Its open-deck design contributes to weight savings. 

Induction Noise

Shape of the airbox was designed based on acoustic tests carried out in a sound room. The intake note of the Z900 is clear and mild. The frequency of the note varies with engine speed, adding to riding impact – especially at high rpm. Airbox inlet faces upwards, making the intake note easier to hear for the rider.  

Slipper Clutch

Assist & Slipper Clutch was developed based on feedback from racing activities. The clutch uses two types of cams (an assist cam and a slipper cam), offering two functions not available on a standard clutch.  

All New Trellis Frame

One of the key components to the new Z900’s light weight (noticeable as soon as the bike is lifted off its side-stand), the allnew frame weighs only 13.5 kg and contributes significantly to the bike’s light, nimble handling.  

Suspension

ø41 mm inverted front fork features stepless rebound damping and spring preload adjustability in the left fork tube. Adjusters are conveniently located on the fork top cap.
Rear suspension positions the shock unit and linkage above the swingarm. This arrangement contributes to mass centralisation, while ensuring that the suspension is located far enough from the exhaust that operation is not affected by heat.  

Ergonomics For Control

With the wide, flat handlebar and relaxed, sporty riding position, the rider is easily able to capitalise on the Z900’s sporty street riding potential.
The riding position offers a blend of control and comfort that allows the rider to enjoy a variety of riding situations. 

Low Seat Height

Thanks to the low seat height and the bike’s slim overall design, it’s easy to keep both feet firmly on the ground when stopped, an important consideration for many riders.
