Kawasaki has ensured every rider regardless their capabilities gets to ride a Kawasaki Z900 by introducing a model that is compliant with an A2 licence in Europe.
Kawasaki has retained the aggressive styling of the street bike, along with the inline four-cylinder engine but detuned to produce 93bhp. Also, should a person's licence demands decrease in power, Kawasaki has a solution — flash the ECU to restrict the power output to 46bhp.
As mentioned earlier, the A2 licence Kawasaki Z900 will look identical to the fire-breathing 123bhp version of the motorcycle, and will not carry any 'A2' badging. The Kawasaki Z900 A2 compliant motorcycle will carry forward the slipper clutch found on the stock motorcycle too.
The A2 version of the Kawasaki Z900 will be a great platform for riders keen on graduating to a big motorcycle, as the Kawasaki is identical in every way apart from the power output.
The A2 licensing system is an important aspect in Europe and something that needs to be considered in India too. Amature riders or beginners have access to some of the most powerful motorcycles in the world in India, and the only barrier between is cash, which is something easy to get around.
