- Kawasaki Z900RS prioritizes comfortable riding over aggressive performance
- Stunning retro-inspired design with dual-pod instrument cluster and LCD console
- Equipped with radial callipers, dual 300mm front discs, and 250mm rear discs for braking duties
Good news for bike enthusiasts Kawasaki Z900RS is back in India; yes, that’s correct, the company has re-launched the retro-style classic bike back to India. However, there are no assembly units for the vehicle, and the classic beauty is making its way to India via CBU (Completely Built-up Unit) route, and that might be the reason it will be quite pricey.
Kawasaki Z900RS price in India
The price of the Japanese retro-style roadster has increased significantly by Rs 1.17 lakh, bringing the total cost to a whopping Rs 16.47 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). However, there are hardly any additional features or upgrades that come with this price hike. The only notable change is the availability of two new paint options: Candy Tone Blue and Metallic Diablo Black.
Just to compare, the currently available fully loaded Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R superbike is Rs 32,000 cheaper than the Z900RS. The ZX-10R comes with all the advance features like wheelie control, electronics, LED cluster, and more.
Kawasaki Z900RS Specifications
The Kawasaki Z900RS prioritizes a relaxed and comfortable riding experience over aggressive cornering and fast lap times. Its 948cc inline-four engine delivers 111PS and 98.5Nm of torque, which is slightly lower than the Kawasaki Z900’s output by 14PS and 0.1Nm. Therefore, the Z900RS provides a smooth and creamy ride rather than an overly powerful performance.
The retro-inspired design of the Kawasaki Z900RS is definitely going to be a head-turner. It outshines even the Z650RS with its chunky USD, wider rear tire, and larger inline-four engine. The bike’s classic appearance is further enhanced by a dual-pod instrument cluster that features an inset LCD console for added functionality. However, it’s worth noting that the Z900RS does not offer smartphone connectivity, despite its modern features.
The Kawasaki Z900RS comes equipped with dual 300mm front discs and a 250mm rear disc to handle braking duties. Notably, the bike features radial callipers, which is a feature absent from the sportier Z900. However, it’s worth noting that the Z900RS has a slightly tall seat height of 835mm, and its 215kg kerb weight is relatively heavy.
