Kawasaki announces new models for 2018 line-up including the Z900RS, Ninja® 400, Ninja H2™SX, Ninja H2™SX SE, and the Ninja® ZX™-10R SE.

Z900RS

Highlights of the 2018 Kawasaki Z900RS:

  • Strong, Smooth In-Line Four Engine
  • NEW Kawasaki Tuned Exhaust Note
  • Lightweight Trellis Frame
  • Z1-Inspired iconic styling
  • $??? TBD

The new Kawasaki Z900RS is the brand’s long awaited foray into the retro genre of motorcycling. It is a throwback to its 1970’s predecessor, the Z1. The Z900RS is powered by a 948cc in-line four engine, features a modern trellis frame, and modern suspension components. Technologically advanced components and features include the 41mm inverted front forks, slipper clutch, and Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC). The bike also has some of its own new features as well, such as Kawasaki’s first fully tuned exhaust note, designed to elicit rider response when the 948cc in-line four cylinder engines roars to life, idling, and low speed riding. The Z900RS is available in Metallic Flat Spark Black and Candytone Brown.
