Kawasaki chose the EICMA 2017 to unveil the much anticipated Z900RS. A beautiful homage to the 1972 Z1 900, the Z900RS actually has a higher component spec than the much more modern looking Z900 already in Kawasaki’s lineup.
Sharing the same 948cc four-cylinder engine with the Z900, the new RS gets a slightly different state of tune to increase mid-range power, but still makes a claimed 110 peak horsepower (and 73 pound/feet of torque). Unlike the Z900, the Z900RS features fully adjustable suspension and radial-mount, four-piston Monobloc front brake calipers. Claimed wet weight is in line with the Z900 … under 475 pounds with the 4.5 gallon gas tank topped off.
