A Performance Edition Z900 is also available from Kawasaki dealers as a once more in 2021 – featuring a large smoke meter cover, a gel tank pad, a colour coded seat cover plus the sporty sound and extra performance of an Akrapovič exhaust, finished off with carbon heat shield.

With Power Mode selection plus advanced traction control and rider modes, the support and subtlety of the electronic rider aids is matched to the precision of such features as a smooth to operate Assist and Slipper clutch offering a riding experience that is generally recognised as taking the Z ethos to the next level of engagement and refinement.

The 2021 Z900 will be available in dealers from this coming December and prices will be announced shortly.
