First ride: Kawasaki Z900RS review - page 2

Verdict and specs


As I said at the beginning, the Z900RS receives very high levels of approval in reader comments. I can see why. The styling is exquisite. More than that, it faithfully reimagines a real bike that means somethings to many riders.

If you’re one of those riders to whom it evidently appeals, I have good news: the Z900RS is as rewarding to ride as it is to look at.

The Kawasaki Z900RS costs £9,899 in black
The green option is £10,099
And the brown/orange one is £10,199
While the Z900RS Cafe, due to arrive in March 2018, will be £10,349
