Here’s a YouTube teaser from Kawasaki promising a “Retrovolution,” whatever that is …
Generally, the assumption is that Kawi is about to release a Z650RS, a retro machine based around its long-running Z650 platform. This is probably the case. There have been rumours about this project for months, and Kawasaki’s Z900RS (a retro built around the Z900 naked bike platform) has already been a big success for Team Green.
Maybe we’ll see a Z400RS instead, though? Kawasaki could sell this in more overseas markets, and the 400 series is certainly mucho popular, due to its low, low pricing.
Whatever it is, it shows Kawasaki’s keen to keep playing in the retro scene. Team Green continues to protect its Meguro trademark, and maybe we’ll see this tie into the Retrovolution somehow? Stay tuned!
