The new Z900RS was revealed at the Tokyo motor show and the retro-themed motorcycle looks inspired by the renowned Kawasaki Z1. The bike uses a liquid-cooled, 948cc, inline four-cylinder engine seen on the Z900. Power is down from 125hp to 111hp and torque has dropped from 97.9Nm to 72.5Nm. However, the engine has more midrange grunt, according to the company.
The motorcycle also features analogue-style speedometer and tachometer dials, with a digital screen hidden between the two. The highlight is this bike’s 17-litre tank - its slim and classic design is complete with a flat waistline, flat seat and tail of the motorcycle, all of which is seems to be inspired by the classic Z1. There’s LED lighting all-around.
This is Kawasaki’s only retro-modern motorcycle and will likely hit the international market by the end of the year. For now, there is no confirmation on whether this bike will make its way to India. If it does ,you can expect it to be priced at a premium over the Z900.
