New Kawasaki Z 900 RS SE ‘ Feedback and Review

First seen on the original Kawasaki Z1 Super Four in 1972, the latest incarnation of the Z900RS will be available in an SE edition with ‘Yellow Ball’ livery and some high-quality parts in the Modern Classic heritage range.

It’s not just the styling that’s been overhauled in the latest iteration of the popular Z900RS theme, the SE model’s additional mods and specs stay true to past tuning enthusiasts, including suspension and tire updates.

An Öhlins S46 preload-adjustable rear shock with a large ø46mm piston is paired with a 41mm inverted gold front fork, hoping to create an ideal balance of front/rear balance and feel across the entire travel range.

Dual 300mm Brembo front discs are fitted with Brembo M4.32 radial mount monobloc calipers and a Nissin master cylinder with small bore radial pump (from 19.1mm standard to 17.5mm) through stainless steel braided lines for increased stopping power and linear lever progression.

Aesthetically, the Z900RS SE features the model’s fastest RS logo lettering on the side panels and is finished in striking red and topped with stylish multi-spoke gold wheels.

Hoping to touch the hearts of Z1 fans and spark the imagination of ever-growing retro sports fans, the ‘Yellow Ball’ livery is recognizable by its signature classic styling. It’s a bike Kawasaki hopes to capture the hearts of the modern classic scene and continue its decades-long Z heritage.
