Kawasaki launches the Z900RS Café. Oddly worded name – trick looking motorcycle

Eagerly anticipated following sight of the Z1 inspired Z900RS at the Tokyo Motor Show, Kawasaki targeted the EICMA show to debut another retro sport machine – the Z900RS Café.


A step away from standard, the bike gets a low handlebar, a bikini cowling and stylish seat complete with rear hump.

Multi-spoke cast wheels give the appearance of traditional wire spoked items and the bike also gets KTRC traction control and an assist and slipper clutch. As with the Z900RS, the frame is a lightweight tubular trellis frame matched to 41mm inverted front forks and horizontal back link suspension.


Director of Kawasaki Motors Europe, Morihiro Ikoma, said: We were delighted at the worldwide acclaim for the Z900RS when it was launched just a few weeks ago.

“The Z900RS Café widens the appeal of the new RS offering and personifies the True Spirit model tagline. Kawasaki took its time to enter the modern classic scene but the wait was worthwhile. The Z900RS Café and Z900RS have a unique heritage and an authenticity that sets them apart as the genuine article.”
