Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The Z900 is back in Kawasaki's lineup, although this naked bike bears little resemblance to the behemoth that first bore the name in 1972 (The RS version is the tribute model). It's not as silly-fast as the Z1000R, but still has plenty of power to appease your inner hooligan, and might save you some money on insurance, although those savings will vanish if you get a ticket for stunting … An ABS version is also available for an extra $500.
