The new all-digital TFT colour instrumentation gives the cockpit a high-tech, high-grade appearance. The new meter also offers additional features unavailable on the previous model.
KTRC (Kawasaki Traction Control)
Kawasaki's advanced traction control system provides both enhanced sport riding performance and the peace of mind to negotiate low-traction surfaces with confidence. Three riderselectable modes offer progressively greater levels of intrusion to suit the riding situation and rider preference.
Latest Evolution of Z Sugomi Styling
While the Z900’s distinctive sugomi design elements (crouching stance, low-positioned head and upswept tail) remain unchanged, its eye-catching styling benefits from a number of updates that make its aggressive design even sharper.
Integrated Riding Modes
All-inclusive Riding modes that link KTRC and Power Mode allow riders to easily set traction control and power delivery to suit a given riding situation. Riders can choose from three settings (Sport, Road, Rain) or a manual setting (Rider). In the manual Rider mode, each of the systems can be set independently.
Power Mode Selection
A choice of Full Power or Low Power modes allows riders to set power delivery to suit preference and conditions. Low Power mode limits output to approximately 55% of Full Power. (The reduced power, which varies according to engine speed (rpm) and throttle position, offers enhanced manageability.)
A Bluetooth technology built into the instrument panel enables riders to connect to their motorcycle wirelessly. Using the smartphone application “RIDEOLOGY THE APP,” a number of instrument functions can be accessed, contributing to an enhanced motorcycling experience.
New LED headlamp, position lamps, licence plate lamp and turn signals† add to the Z900’s sharper new styling.
New Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tyres contribute to the Z900’s superb handling character.
ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) ensures stable braking performance by preventing wheel lock during braking.
HORIZONTAL BACK-LINK REAR SUSPENSION
Horizontal Back-link Rear Suspension arranges its shock unit horizontally, greatly contributing to efficient use of space and mass centralisation.
ASSIST & SLIPPER CLUTCH
Based on racing technology, the Assist & Slipper Clutch acts as both a back-torque limiter and a self-servo mechanism that enables a lighter clutch lever pull.
3-Mode KTRC (Kawasaki TRaction Control), Kawasaki's most advanced traction control system, offers a selection of modes to suit a variety of riding situations, from sport riding to touring.
Power Mode selection allows engine power delivery to be changed to suit the riding situation.
DUAL THROTTLE VALVES
Dual Throttle Valves offer increased power and greater ease of use care of a second set of ECU-controlled throttle valves.
ECONOMICAL RIDING INDICATOR
The Economical Riding Indicator is a mark appearing on the instrument panel to indicate favourable fuel consumption, encouraging fuel efficient riding.
Smartphone connectivity contributes to an enhanced motorcycling experience by enabling riders to connect to their motorcycle wirelessly.
