2018 Kawasaki Z900RS - September 2018 Window Bike

2018 Z900RS Kawasaki Window Bike at Town Moto

When we found out we were getting the Kawasaki Z900RS for our window in September we were super excited for the chance to take a closer look at it.

It's a homage to Kawasaki's groundbreaking Z1 from 1973. While the two bikes share a few styling cues that have always stood out to me: The tear drop tank, round taillight with duckbill tail section and bullet shaped tach and speedo bottoms the updated Z900RS has a host of well thought out details that leave the retro tag in the rearview.

The engine is a liquid cooled inline four that is smooth, strong and tuned for low to mid range torque. We found higher rpms pack just as much punch in the too-short couple of days we were riding it before sticking it in the window. The styling on the engine invokes the old air-cooled engines of the Z1 with cast alloy cases and the appearance of cooling fins.

The suspension is a real upgrade with 41mm adjustable USD forks on the front Kawasaki’s Horizontal Back-Link rear suspension for modern performance and a sportier feel than traditional twin rear shocks.

At the end of the day if you're looking for a 'retro' looking bike that performs like a modern and gives you a fun, intuitive ride whether you're in the city or carving up some curvy country roads the Z900RS is a great motorcycle give some consideration to. We have it in our window for the rest of the month so if you'd like to take a closer look be sure to stop by!
