Reigniting the classic style of the original Z1 900 motorcycle, the Kawasaki Z900RS motorcycle calls upon timeless design elements with minimal bodywork and no fairing for a pure retro-style look. The Z900RS family is powered by a 948cc engine and modern technology for a classic yet modern ride.

Authentic Z1 Styling

The Z900RS motorcycle is the ultimate retro-sport Z that offers modern running gear and classic styling.

Stainless Steel

Double-walled headers, integrated connections and short megaphone silencer—all treated to a buffed finish highlight the Z900RS motorcycle’s retro-sport image.

Modern & Bright

A round LED headlight and oval surface-emitting LED taillight pay homage to the original Z1 motorcycle with a blend of retro and modern designs.

High-grade & Vintage

The high-tech multi-function LCD screen nestles between bullet-shape analogue dials, creating a balance of retro style and modern functionality.

Classic Spoke Style

A classic look with machining on the spokes and rim plus high-quality paint demonstrates superb craftsmanship.

The Perfect Balance

The combination of a lightweight trellis frame and powerful engine allows the Z900RS motorcycle to achieve a superb balance of power and handling.

Smooth & Powerful

The powerful inline four delivers strong acceleration and silky-smooth performance for cruising at higher rpm.

Tuned Exhaust Note

Tuned to deliver a satisfying rumble during engine start and idling.

Comfortable for Long Rides

Seat is well cushioned and comfortable for extended highway cruising and enhanced road bump absorption.

Authentic Riding Experience

Retro design meets modern technology and performance for superb riding comfort around town and on the highway.

Strength & Flexibility

The modern lightweight trellis frame provides strength to harness the inline 4-cylinder power and balanced flex to achieve responsive and agile handling.

Easy Riding

A relaxed upright riding position accommodates both comfortable cruising and sporty riding. A low seat height allows an easy reach to the ground while an upright handlebar position adds leverage for cornering and low-speed maneuvering.

Reliable & Modern

Powerful braking performance featuring a firm, progressive feel is helped by modern radial-mount calipers and a radial-pump brake master cylinder. A compact and lightweight Nissin motorcycle ABS unit helps reduce wheel lock-up under certain conditions.

Comfortable & Responsive

A fully adjustable 41mm inverted front fork and a horizontal back-link rear suspension offer progressive damping that delivers both ride comfort and sporty performance.
