The EICMA 2019 saw the new Kawasaki Z900. The good news is it gets two separate variants with power. One is highly capable to produce 125 hp, and the slightly lower gets 95 hp of power. Now Kawasaki has officially unveiled the new Z900.
Four different driving modes, including two power modes, are new compared to the earlier version. However, now we have more information on the new Kawasaki Z900 as the price and release date was under the hood.
In Japan, we may see two paint schemes Senna Gray Green and Chinakuro Red. However, there are four more paint schemes Metallic spark black / Metallic flat spark black, Metallic sparkle / Metallic spark black, Candy lime green / Metallic spark black, and Pearl blizzard white / Metallic spark black. We feel they are for Europe.
Kawasaki Z900 was born in 2017 and had released this via there Sugomi design concept. Sugomi essentially is the state of the art design concept that allows the rider to have better handling of the bike with great focus and low crouching position.
The chassis is very well built with the trellis frame. New Z900 has a natural aura that is matched to its Sugomi design.
Plus, Kawasaki has built the right balance for Z900 with power that makes the handling better and more comfortable.
To control torque, Kawasaki is said to assemble the air filter design so that air intake is more relieved. It weighs around 210 kgs and 209 for Non- ABS models and also gets itself align with Euro 4 Standards. It also comes with Assist & Slipper Clutch.
Now in 2020, Kawasaki Europe released the new colour of the Z900.
However, we feel the paint schemes that Europe gets may well come to Asia, although there is no guarantee.
