8 November 2016 Iconic Z900 is Kawasaki’s new Refined Raw Supernaked

A cutting edge rider-focused Supernaked, the sublime balance of power and handling offered by Kawasaki’s new sub-litre class machine is such that only one model name would be appropriate; Z900.
With the same attitude and presence of the world famous Kawasaki Z1 and GPz900R lines, the new-for-2017 Z900 is also a four cylinder machine with a high revving sports ability mixed with generous low to mid-range assured pulling power.

Housed in an all new lightweight tube trellis frame with extruded aluminum swinging arm combination, the sense of exciting urgency from first to fifth gears finds a clever counterpoint in the longer overdrive sixth gear that befits the variety of riding scenarios the Z900 is capable of excelling in.

A supremely versatile package, the 2017 Z900 has been created to be easy to maneuver offering thrills and reassurance to a wide range of riders from those well versed in the ways of Z to enthusiastic newcomers to the historic Kawasaki brand.

Features such as an Assist and Slipper clutch, rev adjustable gear shift indicator and a tachometer that offers three selectable display modes are matched in style terms by the Z shaped LED tail light and lightweight star pattern 5-spoke wheels.

Stylish and practical, the fuel tank narrows reassuringly at the rear combining with a low seat and wide-flat handlebars to deliver an aggressive yet ergonomically pleasing stance while allowing consummate control whatever the rider skill level or riding challenge.

You, your Z, the roads you ride, ridden your way. For over four decades riders who know have relied on Z to deliver the thrill of motorcycling at its most intense and elemental. The no-compromise spirit of Z continues to evolve undiminished in every Supernaked Z. Kawasaki Z900, Refined Raw.

Using Kawasaki’s unique Sugomi design philosophy which treats engineering and technical innovation as being on a par with advanced styling, the contemporary direction for all 2017 Z models is Refined Raw – something which the new Z900 personifies very well.
