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. It's lighter than the outgoing Z800, with more power, and comes in at the same price. An ABS version is also available.
