Video: Kawasaki offers a second glimpse of its 2018 Z900RS

Kawasaki has released a second video, teasing the release of its long-awaited Kawasaki Z900RS.

The retro bike market is massive at the minute. There’s Triumph’s ever-popular Bonneville range, Ducati’s set of Scramblers and BMW’s range of R NineT’s all vying for position – but Kawasaki has decided to renter the ring after the limited success of its W800, launching its latest retro-styled machine, the Z900RS.

The Z900RS is Kawasaki’s new modern classic, taking styling cues from its iconic Z1 Super Four 900 of the ‘70s. The ‘Retro Sport’ Z900RS builds on the success of the standard Z900, blending past, present and future and is set to be unveiled at the Tokyo Motorshow on October 25th.

We expect that beneath its retro exterior, the Z900RS will share plenty with its modern cousin, the Z900 – but, we’re still waiting for tech specs to be revealed, so can’t say with any confidence what’ll be beneath its fairing. Thankfully, we won’t have long too wait, with the Tokyo Motor Show just around the corner.
