[motorcycle.com] - 2018 Kawasaki Z900RS Teaser


Kawasaki has an impressive stable of naked Z bikes (including our MOBO Best Standard winner, the Z900) but not everyone’s a fan of the line’s aesthetic. Sure, some people might like the Michael Bay Transformers look, but some people want their Bumblebee to look more like a classic VW Beetle than a modern Camaro.


If you’re that type of person, then your hopes may be answered, as Kawasaki released a new video teasing a new retro-styled Z900RS.



We broke the news when Kawasaki trademarked the Z900RS name last year, and our early speculation that the RS would be a retro throwback model looks to be correct. Early in the video, Kawasaki shows a classic Z1, suggesting the new model is heavily inspired by the original.

What glimpses we see of the new Z900RS support that premise. We see a clear shot of a circular headlight, a welcome sight for those who are turned off by the modern Z models’ robotic faces. Other glimpses of the new bike show a black and orange color scheme resembling the original Z1.

From the name, we can surmise the RS uses the same 948cc Inline-Four as the Z900, and likely the same frame. Beyond that, we’ll have to wait until Oct. 25 when the 2018 Kawasaki Z900RS makes its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show.
