The 2018 Kawasaki Z900RS is a retro style bike and is powered by a 948cc inline 4 engine which puts out 110bhp. The dash looks retro from afar but actually has all the modern bits you would expect on a small LCD screen between the two clocks.

Pros

Cons

  • Exhaust, tyre valves, rubber hoses

Wiki

It's powered by a Euro 4 compliant liquid cooled 948cc inline 4 cylinder engine, producing 110bhp at 8,500rpm and maximum torque at 6,500rpm. RRP is £9,900 in black, £10,100 in green/black and £10,200 in orange/black.

Features include:

  • Steel tubular frame and Aluminium swingarm
  • Dual 300mm discs up front with 2 piston calipers
  • 250mm disc at the rear with Nissin single piston caliper
  • Nissin ABS system
  • Adjustable 41mm upside down fork with 120mm travel
  • Adjustable rear shock with 140mm 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 10 split spoke 17" wheels take a Dunlop GPR-300 120/70 tyre at the front and a 180/55 at the rear.

Accessories are likely to include an Akrapovic silencer, 35mm 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.

Colours: Black, green/black (our fav, +£200), orange/black (+£300)

If you fancy more of a cafe racer look Kawasaki also offer the Z900RS CafeThe bike is essentially the same but with a cafe racer headlight fairing, lower handlebars, lower mirrors and 15mm lower seat with more of a pillion hump to make it look more like a racer and it only weighs 1kg more.
