2022 Z900 RS

STANDARD BLACK $21,195 | GREEN $21,695

Kawasaki makes its long-awaited entry into the retro category with the all-new Z900RS. Conceived as an 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.

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.

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.

FEATURES

LIGHTWEIGHT TRELLIS FRAME

Like the engine, the chassis responds to rider input predictably, going where the rider wants it to without resistance. In keeping with its retro sport model character, the Z900RS’ stance is less forward-leaning than the Z900.

ASSIST & SLIPPER CLUTCH

Race-inspired clutch technology offers both a much lighter feel at the lever, as well as a back-torque limiting function that helps prevent rear-wheel hop when downshifting.

41MM INVERTED FORK

Large-diameter inverted fork contributes to excellent ride comfort and sporty riding potential. The high-grade fork features compression and rebound damping adjustability, enabling precise settings to suit rider preference and riding style.

STRONG, SMOOTH IN-LINE FOUR ENGINE

Like the Z1, the Z900RS features a 900cc-class In-Line Four – an engine configuration that inherently offers a great balance of power and manageability. Revs build in a measured, but very determined manner, giving the rider a sense of connectedness between the throttle and rear wheel.

KTRC (KAWASAKI TRACTION CONTROL)

Contributing to rider reassurance, the Z900RS is equipped with advanced rider support technology. KTRC features two modes that cover a wide range of riding conditions, offering either enhanced sport riding performance or the peace of mind to negotiate slippery surfaces with confidence.

KAWASAKI’S FIRST TUNED EXHAUST NOTE

Designed to elicit rider response, the sound tuning focused on the engine’s initial roar to life, idling and low-speed riding where the rider is best able to enjoy the exhaust’s deep rumble.
