  • 948 cc liquid-cooled, in-line four engine
  • Assist & Slipper clutch
  • Authentic retro styling


Authentic Z1 Styling: The Z900RS is the ultimate retro-sport Z that offers modern running gear and classic styling.

  • EXHAUST SYSTEM - Stainless Steel: Double-walled headers, integrated connections and short megaphone silencer—all treated to a buffed finish to highlight the Z900RS’ retro-sport image.
  • LED LIGHTS - Modern & Bright: A round LED headlight and oval surface-emitting LED taillight pay homage to the original Z1 with a blend of retro and modern designs.
  • INSTRUMENTATION - High-grade & Vintage: The high-tech multi-function LCD screen settles snuggly between bullet-shape analogue dials, creating a balance of retro style and modern functionality.
  • WHEELS - Classic Spoke Style: A classic look with machining on the spokes and rim, plus high-quality paint demonstrates superb craftsmanship.


The Perfect Balance: The combination of a lightweight trellis frame and powerful engine allows the Z900RS motorcycle to achieve a superb balance of power and handling.

  • ENGINE - Smooth & Powerful: The powerful In-Line Four delivers strong acceleration and silky-smooth performance for cruising at higher rpm.
  • EXHAUST - Tuned Exhaust Note: Based on sound research, the exhaust has been tuned to deliver a satisfying rumble during engine start and idling.
  • SEAT - Comfortable for Long Rides: Seat is well cushioned and comfortable for extended highway cruising and enhanced road bump absorption.


Authentic Riding Experience: Retro design meets modern technology and performance for superb riding comfort around town and on the highway.

  • CHASSIS - Strength & Flexibility: The modern lightweight trellis frame provides strength to harness the In-Line Four power and balanced flex to achieve responsive and agile handling.
  • ERGONOMICS - Easy Riding: A relaxed upright riding position accommodates both comfortable cruising and sporty riding. A low seat height allows an easy reach to the ground while an upright handlebar position adds leverage for cornering and low-speed manoeuvring.
  • BRAKES - Reliable & Modern: Powerful braking performance featuring a firm, progressive feel is helped by modern radial-mount calipers and a radial-pump brake master cylinder. A compact and lightweight Nissin motorcycle ABS unit helps reduce wheel lock-up under certain conditions.
  • SUSPENSION - Comfortable & Responsive: A fully adjustable ø41 mm inverted front fork and a Horizontal Back-link rear suspension offer progressive damping that delivers both ride comfort and sporty performance.


PLUSHER RIDE FEEL & TIMELESS Z STYLING: A high-grade variation of the Z900RS, the new Z900RS SE features a new Brembo brake package and a high-grade Öhlins rear shock to deliver a plusher ride feel and even greater control. The Z900RS SE recalls another of Kawasaki’s iconic old-school Z models with vivid “Yellow Ball” livery that is sure to turn heads and pluck nostalgic heartstrings.

  • SE BRAKES - Premium Brembo Front Brake Package: ø300 mm Brembo front discs, M4.32 radial-mount monobloc calipers and pads complemented by a smaller-diameter Nissin radial-pump master cylinder and steel-braided lines deliver greater stopping power and offer a linear progression that facilitates precise control.
  • SUPPLE SUSPENSION - Öhlins S46 rear shock: Complementing the large-diameter inverted fork, Öhlins rear suspension offers both increased ride comfort and a more planted feel. Gold-coloured fork outer tubes match the Öhlins rear shock and contribute to the eye-catching styling.
