Z900 RS CAFE

$21,495*

Kawasaki makes its long-awaited entry into the retro category with the all-new Z900 RS Cafe. 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 Z900 RS Cafe unique in this category. The newest Z is a synthesis of the traditional and the modern.

Great pains were taken to achieve the Z900 RS’ 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 Z900 RS Cafe offers both in abundance, while providing an opportunity to slow down, look around and enjoy the simple things that life can bring.

FEATURES

STRONG, SMOOTH IN-LINE FOUR ENGINE

Like the Z1, the Z900 RS 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.

KTRC (KAWASAKI TRACTION CONTROL)

The Z900 RS Cafe 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.

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.

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 Z900 RS’ stance is less forward-leaning than the Z900.

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.

CAFE EXCLUSIVES

A racer style front cowl, high-grade coating and a clean fit-and-finish contribute to the high-quality appearance. Compact fairing exudes cafe-racer style and helps to deflect wind away from the rider. The sculpted seat shape is slimmer at the front, facilitating the riders reach to the ground.
