Kawasaki 2020 Z900RS for Sale at Maroochydore Kawasaki in Maroochydore, QLD | Specifications and Review Information

Kawasaki makes a long-awaited entry into the retro category with the Z900RS. Conceived as an homage to the legendary Z1, it is powered by a liquid-cooled 948cc-class In-Line Four cylinder - an engine choice that makes the Z900RS unique in this category.

The Z900RS is a synthesis of the traditional and the modern. An engine with an In-Line Four configuration is backed by Kawasaki's latest rider support technology. Carefully crafted styling elements are complemented by high-tech features like LED lighting and digital instrumentation

Great pains were taken to achieve the right look and feel for the Z900RS. Each component meticulously selected and every setting carefully considered.

Kawasaki - Z900RS


The ride feel of the Z900RS is unique in the retro category thanks to its smooth In-Line Four tuned for strong low-mid range torque . The engine and chassis response were carefully designed to not be too quick, making it easier to feel at one with the bike.

The resultant stress-free riding is complemented by a crafted exhaust note that enriches the riding experience from the time the rider thumbs the ignition – features that will enable riders to enjoy their machine for many long years.

The Z900RS’s refined character is reminiscent of the legendary Kawasaki bikes of yesteryear: it is happy to run at a leisurely pace, but is more than capable of accommodating more spirited riding should the mood arise.

Like the Z1, the Z900RS features a 900cc-class In-Line Four - an engine configuration that inherently offers a great balance of power and manageability.

Tuning focuses on the low-mid range. Revs build in a measured, but very determined manner, giving the rider a sense of connectedness between the throttle and rear wheel.

Kawasaki - Z900RS


The Z900RS is equipped with advanced Kawasaki rider support technology - KTRC. Riders can choose traction control modes:

  • Mode 1 prioritises maximum forward acceleration.
  • Mode 2 provides rider reassurance by facilitating smooth riding on slippery surfaces.
  • Riders may also elect to turn the system off.

When designing the exhaust system over 20 variations were considered before arriving at the final design; one that emphasises the presence of the In-Line Four engine.

Double-walled header pipes give the exhaust a strong appearance with clean lines that flow from the header to the silencer and a short megaphone silencer works to the Z900RS retro sport style.

A first for Kawasaki - A Tuned Exhaust Note, Kawasaki has conducted sound research to craft a models ideal exhaust note. Designed to elicit rider response, the sound tuning focused on the engine's initial roar to life, idling, and low-speed riding where the rider is best able to enjoy the exhausts deep rumble. Ride it and listen to the sound that will entice you to keep riding all day.

When the engine is operating at normal rpm the Assist cam functions as a self-servo mechanism, pulling the clutch hub and operating plate together to compress the clutch plates. Resulting in a lighter clutch lever pull.

When excessive engine braking occurs - as a result of quick downshifts - the slipper cam comes into play, forcing the clutch hub and operating plate apart. This relieves pressure on the clutch plates reducing back-torque and controlling rear tyre hopping and skidding.
