Kawasaki makes a long-awaited entry into the retro category with the Z900RS. Conceived as an homage to the legendary Z1, it is powered by a liquid-cooled 948cc-class In-Line Four cylinder – an engine choice that makes the Z900RS unique in this category.


The Z900RS is a synthesis of the traditional and the modern. An engine with an In-Line Four configuration is backed by Kawasaki’s latest rider support technology. Carefully crafted styling elements are complemented by high-tech features like LED lighting and digital instrumentation.


Great pains were taken to achieve the right look and feel for the Z900RS. Each component meticulously selected and every setting carefully considered.
