0 miles pre re. Cracking retro inspired bike.

Eagerly anticipated following sight of the Z1 inspired Z900RS at the Tokyo Motor Show, Kawasaki targeted the EICMA show to debut another model in the line dubbed the Z900RS CAFE.
Taking the modern classic style of the highly received Z900RS in a new and imaginative direction, the Z900RS CAFE can also trace is roots back to the Super Four model Z1 of 1972 but adds a twist to proceedings with a bold approach to colour and graphics plus a more focussed riding position thanks to its drop-style black finish handlebar.

A step away from standard, the low handlebar creates a sporty body position matched well by a bikini cowling and stylish seat complete with racer inspired rear hump. Making sound sense, the exhaust system is Kawasaki’s first tuned specifically for tone and fits the overall attention to detail of the Z900RS CAFE perfectly with its subtle brushed satin finish.

Multi-spoke cast wheels give the appearance of traditional wire spoked items while the meticulous attention to detail manifests itself with clever engine details and a clean overall appearance uncluttered by poorly routed hoses and cables.

As with the legendary Z1, the heart of the machine lays with its formidable engine. In the case of the Z900RS CAFE this is a unit equipped with KTRC traction control and an assist and slipper clutch. Contained in a lightweight tubular trellis frame and matched to 41mm inverted front forks and horizontal back link suspension, handling and performance are totally up to date.

Lighting the way a distinctive LED headlamp is mated to a Z1 style elliptical LED rear unit while the traditional speedometer and rev counter assembly is complemented by a central LCD information panel covering the vital functions of this confident arrival on the modern classic scene.

Of course for some riders the Z900RS CAFE will be merely the starting point for further personalisation and a wide range of Kawasaki genuine accessories will be available to personalise the vintage lime green machine.

“We were delighted at the worldwide acclaim for the Z900RS when it was launched just a few weeks ago”, commented Director of Kawasaki Motors Europe, Morihiro Ikoma.

“The Z900RS CAFE widens the appeal of the new RS offering and personifies the True Spirit model tag line. Kawasaki took its time to enter the modern classic scene but the wait was worthwhile. The Z900RS CAFE and Z900RS have a unique heritage and an authenticity that sets them apart as the genuine article.”

Something tells me you don't know much about bikes . The 362kg Rocket is about as far as you could possibly get from a cafe racer.
Wow - this is one fugly machine!!
My cousin had a Z900 in 1976 I think it was , massive thing or seemed so to me at the time , he'd just passed his test on a Honda CD185 I think, then went out and bought the beast .

Make sure to ask for andy, he is a legend.
It's the one that I want, ooh ooh ooh!

2019 pre-reg, seems to be about the normal price for these.
Looks lovely this, also like the Honda CB1100
Millenium and GT Superbikes have them on eBay for £100 less and same price respectively. I was offered a new green one for 8500 a year ago. I reckon there is still a hundred or so to be saved if you play the dealers against each other. I'd be ringing M&P too, best price is always over the phone.
Nice bike and heat added. Owned one but got rid after the novelty wore off of owning a UJM again.
Love that Café Racer look
Wow - this is one fugly machine!!
That's what a bike should look like
Ask the dealer to throw in a tailpack to seal the deal so you can tell the cops your going food shopping
No idea if this is hot but this is a gorgeous bike!
Mid life crisis time
Cheapo replica. Not worth
prefer the look of an old triumph bonneville, or a harley low rider or sportster

I think with the quarantine having no end point defined, we'd be best just holding off as prices aren't going to increase. I don't think people have the money to buy bikes now, and if this stuff goes on till Christmas you may aswell wait till then I guess; as prices fall in the winter anyways.

It’s nice but it’s not a Zed.
This is ugly as hell. I do however respect the oldies remenising on the oldskool bike look. Enjoy

The majority of bikers ride with respect & filter sensibly when it is safe to do so, it's a minority that give them a bad name. People just notice things more when they differ from the norm

If you like fugly ones, yes agree.

Wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole. Sports bikes all the way, or a proper cafe bike like a Triumph Rocket.

No that’s true, nothing at all. Ridden them for 25 years, owned 34 and have 3 in the garage including a Daytona Supersports, CBR-F and R1.

I wouldn't say a triumph rocket was much like a cafe racer at all. Way too heavy.

If I was going for a triumph cafe racer it would be a thruxton or speed twin.

Rocket is not a cafe bike

Which is impressive given that in 25 years and 34 purchases you haven't found out what a cafe racer is, given that it a very distinctive and culturally significant style. I haven't even ridden a motorbike, have no idea if this Kawasaki is any good or not, but literally two seconds looking at a picture of a Triumph Rocket was all it took for someone as uninformed as me to know it's clearly not cafe racer.

It looks like a bike from the time when quite a few people used motorbikes for daily transport, not like today when most bikers are middle aged men, some of whom will be accountants, who want race bike lookalikes to ride on sunny summer Sundays.
