Kawasaki Z900RS Unveiled

Recommended Posts

Here's an image and video of the new Z900RS.  Looks like this could be retro done right IMHO.

I have no preferred brand - there are bikes I like and dislike from just about every manufacturer. But I'm glad they went conservative with the 900RS as it is much better than the suggestions presented so far.

Hope we see this model in North America soon and that it isn't overpriced.:D

I get and understand the appeal of retro bikes. They're just not my cup of tea.

Perhaps it's the memories of personally riding bikes that looked like this back when they were considered "Modern styling"? 😄

Looks nice. I like a comfy seat and a "standard" posture but I'm not as crazy about inline 4's as I am parallel twins. I would rather have a grunty, 1200 Triumph. If only Yamaha would make an FZ-10, only in parallel twin configuration. (do you hear me now, Yamaha?!)

except apparently Kaw used up their annual allotment for creases/corners on the EX400 so there isn't one anywhere. I think it could have used a couple. But I agree, a bike that looks proper and fitting. I'm sick and tired of Gandam styling.

I'm not a fan of the paint.

I usually dislike black bikes, but the RS was very nice in black.

I'm not a huge fan of retro themed bikes, but I think they nailed it on this bike.

 

Outstanding.
