As seen in the case of the recently announced 2023 Kawasaki ZX-10R, the new Z900 has been introduced in two color options – Metallic Phantom Silver/Metallic Carbon Gray or Ebony/Metallic Matte Graphene Steel Grey. Except for this update, the rest of the details remain unchanged on the bike.
At the heart of the bike remains the same 948cc, inline-four, liquid-cooled engine. This unit was designed to deliver 125hp of peak power at 9,500rpm and 98.6Nm of peak torque at 7,700rpm. This engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission.
For suspension duties, the bike uses a 41mm USD fork and monoshock. Both of these units are preload and rebound adjustable. For braking, there’s a pair of axially mounted Nissin four-piston front calipers biting onto two 300mm discs and a single-piston rear caliper biting onto a 250mm disc. These brakes also come standard with a dual-channel ABS unit.
Some of the key features of the new Kawasaki Z900 include full LED lighting, a 4.3-inch color TFT instrument panel, two power modes (Full and Low), four riding modes – Rain, Road, Sport and Rider ( customizable) – and three levels of traction control (in addition to the possibility of turning it off completely).
