CROZ NEO CLASSIC RS (SPECIAL EDITION) - Kawasaki NZ

CROZ NEO CLASSIC RS

POA*

Kawasaki NZ has partnered with legendary racer Graeme Crosby to create the Croz Neo Classic RS.

A classic interpretation of the modern day Z900RS featuring quad exhausts, 18” wheels, a longer duckbill tailpiece, classic LED lighting and bespoke Crosby special engineering and finishes.

These one of a kind builds are bespoke and reimagined by Croz himself. Numbers are strictly limited and enquiries should be directed to Graeme Crosby Ltd.

LIGHTWEIGHT TRELLIS FRAME

Complementing a light overall weight (noticeable as soon as the bike is lifted off its side-stand), frame rigidity and chassis geometry tuning were selected to deliver light, natural handling. 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.

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. Tuning focuses on the low-mid range. Revs build in a measured, but very determined manner, giving the rider a sense of connectedness between the throttle and rear wheel.

KAWASAKI’S FIRST TUNED EXHAUST NOTE

While Kawasaki In-Line Four engines are historically renowned for their great-sounding exhausts, this the first time that Kawasaki has conducted sound research to craft a model’s ideal 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.

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. Response is unhurried, offering reassuring handling in riding situations ranging from in-town to winding roads. The high-grade fork features compression and rebound damping adjustability, enabling precise settings to suit rider preference and riding style.

KTRC (KAWASAKI TRACTION CONTROL)

Contributing to rider reassurance, the Z900RS is equipped with advanced Kawasaki 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.
