Z900 RS SE – 2019
Kawasaki makes its long-awaited entry into the retro category with the all-new Z900RS. Conceived as a homage to the legendary Z1, it is powered by a liquid-cooled 900cc-class In-Line Four, an engine choice that makes the Z900RS unique in this category. The newest Z is a synthesis of the traditional and the modern. An engine with a traditional In-Line Four configuration, and is backed by Kawasaki’s latest rider support technology, the engine and frame design both benefit from the latest in advanced analysis technology, and carefully crafted styling elements are complemented by high-tech features like LED lighting and digital instrumentation.
Great pains were taken to achieve the Z900RS look and feel, with each component meticulously selected and every setting carefully considered. A synchronous ride feel combines the smooth response of an In-Line Four tuned for low-mid range torque, a deep rumbling exhaust note crafted to deliver additional rider enjoyment, and neutral handling that enables both leisurely and sporty riding. This is complemented by timeless looks that blend Z1-inspired styling with modern technology and craftsmanship techniques, and an attention to detail and high level of fit-and-finish to rival that of the Z1 itself.
For riders searching for a bike with character and a rich history, the Z900RS offers both in abundance, while providing an opportunity to slow down, look around and enjoy the simple things that life can bring.
