Japanese motorcycle manufacturer Kawasaki has revealed the all-new Z900RS Cafe at the 2017 EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan Italy. The new motorcycle from Kawasaki is the cafe racer version of the Z900RS that was revealed a few weeks ago at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show.
The new Z900RS Cafe gives the naked Z900RS the full cafe racer treatment with a fairing that houses the round headlight along with lowered handlebars and seat height. Also present is steeply raked windscreen and seat with a hump which adds to the new bikes' cafe racer look.
The new Z900RS is 20mm slimmer, 40mm taller and its seat height is 15mm lower than the naked Z900RS it is based on. However, the wheelbase of both bikes remains the same at 1,470mm.
The Kawasaki Z900RS cafe is powered by a 948cc, four-cylinder engine that produces 109.48bhp @ 8,500rpm and 98.5Nm of torque @ 6,500 rpm which is sent to the rear wheel via a 6-speed gearbox. Braking duties are handled by a set of 267mm discs up front and a single 216mm disc at the rear.
The Kawasaki Z900RS Cafe gets a green paint job and features a white strip that goes across the front, sides, and rear of the new bike and gives it a very old-school look.
The all-new Z900RS Cafe takes the naked Z900RS from the Tokyo Motor Show and turns into a breathtaking cafe racer that hearkens back to an era where racing from cafe to cafe on your own bike was something that people enjoyed doing together.
The bewitching bike is now on sale in Europe and we really do wish that Kawasaki would bring this beauty to India roads, if only so that the crowds can drool over it at next year's Auto Expo.
