The chassis of the Z900RS Cafe with its 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 Cafe 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 Cafe 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.
