Drawing from Kawasaki’s collection of legendary machines, the Z900RS SE’s styling is reminiscent of the iconic “Yellow Ball,” a black and yellow version of the orange and brown “Fireball” paint of the original Z1.
Assist & Slipper Clutch
Race-inspired clutch technology offers both a much lighter feel at the lever, as well as a back-torque limiting function that helps prevent rear-wheel hop when downshifting.
Front brake package with Brembo components (discs, calipers, pads) offers stronger stopping power and contributes to even more precise control and greater ease of use
Kawasaki’s First Tuned Exhaust Note
While Kawasaki In-Line Four engines are historically renowned for their great-sounding exhausts, this the first time that Kawasaki has conducted sound research to craft a model’s 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 exhaust’s deep rumble.
Complementing the large diameter inverted fork, Öhlins rear suspension offers both increased ride comfort and a more planted feel.
KTRC (Kawasaki TRaction Control)
Contributing to rider reassurance, the Z900RS SE is equipped with advanced Kawasaki rider support technology. KTRC features two modes that cover a wide range of riding conditions, offering either enhanced sport riding performance or the peace of mind to negotiate slippery surfaces with confidence. Riders may also elect to turn the system off.
Strong, Smooth In-Line Four Engine
Like the Z1, the Z900RS features a 948cc-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.
