2021 Kawasaki Z900 RS Cafe Launched in the US

2021 Z900 RS cafe front

The Kawasaki Z900 RS Café 2021 version has been introduced in the United States. The cosmetic modifications are minor, but it does appear to be more refined than the previous version. Instead of the old Pearl Storm Grey paint scheme it is now offered in a new Metallic Diablo colour. The fuel tank’s grey lines are now thinner and continue up to the front cowl. A dual-tone black and brown seat has also replaced the full-black seat.

The Kawasaki Z900 RS’s other features have stayed unchanged. It has a spherical headlamp encircled by a big cowl, a teardrop-shaped fuel tank, and a tapering tail section, just like an old-school café racer. A 948cc inline four cylinder, 16-valve, liquid-cooled engine producing 111bhp and 98Nm of peak torque sits under its vintage bodywork. This engine is connected to a six-speed transmission with an assist and slipper clutch. 

On the feature front, the Z900 RS is quite simple for a bike with this displacement. It gets a dual analogue instrument cluster with a small LCD at the centre. Traction control and switchable ABS are the only rider aids available. The motorbike is supported by a trellis frame and is suspended in the front by 41mm upside down forks and the rear by a horizontal back-link monoshock. The front brakes are twin discs, while the rear brakes are single disc.
