Real World Review

What Is It?

The Kawasaki Z900RS is a retro style bike and is powered by a Euro 4 compliant liquid cooled 948 cc inline four cylinder engine, producing 110 bhp at 8,500 rpm and maximum torque at 6,500 rpm.

Features include:

  • Steel tubular frame and Aluminium swingarm
  • Dual 300 mm discs up front with four piston calipers
  • 250 mm disc at the rear with Nissin single piston caliper
  • Nissin ABS system
  • Adjustable 41 mm upside down fork with 120 mm travel
  • Adjustable rear shock with 140 mm travel
  • 2-level traction control
  • Assist and slipper clutch
  • LED lights all round
  • 4->1 Stainless Steel exhaust system
  • 5-level adjustable levers
  • 6 speed gearbox with gear position indicator

The bike is heavily based on the sporty naked Z900, much like Yamaha's MT-09 / XSR900 relationship, but with a retro look based on the original Z1000 from the late 70s, a more relaxed riding position and the engine tuned for lower down grunt and slightly less power at 110bhp. Kawasaki have also thrown in traction control over and above the Z900.

Cunningly the dash looks like two retro clocks but actually features a modern LCD affair nestled between them with all the usual information. The 20-spoke 17" wheels take a Dunlop GPR-300 120/70 tyre at the front and a 180/55 at the rear.

Accessories include the Akrapovic silencer, 35 mm lower seat, heated grips, panel to blank off the LCD for a retro look, radiator guard, pillion grab bar, centre stand, mini smoked fly screen, side handle and probably some cafe racer style additions.
