Kawasaki’s new Z900RS Café Racer is living up to its promise. So often a new bike looks the part, but doesn’t deliver either the styling, authenticity or riding engagement suggested through striking press images. They tend to look stunning but handle like a wheelbarrow with a flat tyre, or have ‘Monet’ aesthetics (look great at a distance, and like a kid’s art project up close) but go like stink. The Z900RS Café Racer is the best of both worlds, looking and riding significantly better than I expected it might. Even before throwing a leg over Kawasaki’s new Zed we're smiling. It’s a stunner. So often manufacturers try to copy historic designs and fall short. Kawasaki have hit the retro nail squarely on the head. It's a blend of nostalgia and modernity This Kawasaki Z900RS Café Racer is a beautiful blend of nostalgia and modernity. The classic Kawasaki green really looks the business, especially with that single headlight and 1970s throwback nose cowl. Settle into the saddle and the journey back in time continues. The seat is wide, and surprisingly high. Chief Road Tester, Adam Child, is only 5ft 6in and he says it’s a stretch around the large fuel tank to the dropped bars. Chrome analogue clocks are a lovely touch, with only the modern switchgear detracting from the authenticity. Take a look at our first rides video review to see the Z900RS in action.
