2022 Kawasaki Z900 RS 50th Anniversary

True Spirit

starting from £11,729

A special painting process was developed specially for the Z650RS and Z900RS 50th anniversary editions, replicating the iconic "Fireball" pattern of the original Z1. The candy colours of the tank and bodywork are applied in layers to bring out a deep, glossy texture that enhances the inherent beauty of these machines. Both machines feature gold-coloured wheels and "Double Overhead Camshaft" emblems reminiscent of the past and proudly show the "Z 50th" logo on the top of the tank.

Key Features

Timeless Styling

With a seamless blend of Z1-inspired styling elements and modern craftsmanship – from the iconic teardrop fuel tank to the innovative oval LED taillight – the Z900RS offers timeless good looks with an exquisite attention to detail and superb fit-and-finish that results in a very high-quality appearance.

Engine and Exhaust

Simple, Uncluttered Engine Design With a naked bike, the engine is an important styling element, and with its simple, uncluttered design the engine adds to the Z900RS'’' presence.
Carefully Considered Exhaust Shape, Construction, Material and Finish When designing the exhaust system over 20 variations were considered before arriving at the final design, one that emphasises the presence of the In-Line Four engine.

Spoke-Style & Teardrop

Spoke-Style Cast Wheels Original cast wheels feature flat spokes designed to look like classic wire-spoked wheels.
Iconic Teardrop Tank The centrepiece of the Z900RS' design, the beautiful teardrop fuel tank is reminiscent of the Z1.

Lights

Z1-Inspired Tail Cowl and LED Taillight The flowing design of the rear cowl was inspired by the duck-bill tail cowl of the Z1.
Round LED Headlamp A blend of retro and modern designs, the large ø170 mm LED headlamp casts a bright, white light for great nighttime visibility.

Dual-Dial Instrumentation with Multi-Function LCD

Analogue-style speedometer and tachometer dials are complemented by a multifunctional LCD screen, balancing retro-style looks with modern functionality. The LCD has an easy-to-read, negative (white letters on a black background) display. Bullet-shaped dial cases are a fitting touch for a retro sport model, while a spindle finish on the dial faces adds to their high-quality design.

Technology

ERGO-FIT


ERGO-FIT is an interface system that allows a wide range of riders to feel at one with their machine. Genuine Kawasaki Accessories may need to be purchased for certain Ergo Fit adjustments.

ABS


ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) ensures stable braking performance by preventing wheel lock during braking.

Horizontal Back-link Rear Suspension


Horizontal Back-link Rear Suspension arranges its shock unit horizontally, greatly contributing to efficient use of space and mass centralisation.

Assist & Slipper Clutch


Based on racing technology, the Assist & Slipper Clutch acts as both a back-torque limiter and a self-servo mechanism that enables a lighter clutch lever pull.

KTRC (3-mode)


KTRC (Kawasaki TRaction Control) offers rider reassurance by preventing rear wheel spin on various surfaces.

Dual Throttle Valves


Dual Throttle Valves offer increased power and greater ease of use care of a second set of ECU-controlled throttle valves.

Economical Riding Indicator


The Economical Riding Indicator is a mark appearing on the instrument panel to indicate favourable fuel consumption, encouraging fuel efficient riding.
