The Z spirit finds its latest expression in the Sugomi-styled Z900. Power to the max, instinctive handling and traction control redefine the supernaked experience. LED lights and a TFT display bring the newest tech. Push boundaries and dominate your ride.

Superb Balance of Power and Handling

With an optimised power-to-weight ratio, the Z900 delivers the ultimate supernaked performance.

Modern & Lightweight

The 948 cc In-Line Four engine delivers raw power with incredible torque, broad power delivery and exhilarating acceleration.

Agile & Responsive

The Z900 chassis is lightweight, narrow and features a strengthened swingarm pivot area. Front and rear suspension settings are designed to match the frame. Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tyres—made of high-performance rubber—boost handling and provide optimum grip.

Sporty & Responsive

The o41 mm inverted front fork with adjustable rebound damping and spring preload is responsive and progressive for confident handling with a high level of feedback.

Performance & Comfort

The Horizontal Back-link rear suspension with adjustable spring preload and stepless rebound damping contributes to a high level of handling response, ride comfort and rear wheel traction.

Superb Acceleration

The Z900 features short gearing for quicker shifts and exhilarating acceleration in urban environments and backroads.

Assist & Slipper

An Assist & Slipper Clutch provides a lighter feel at the lever and a back-torque limiting function that helps prevent rear-wheel hop during more aggressive downshifts.

Raw & Refined

A dominant front face and sharp, minimalist bodywork are complemented by an exposed trellis frame to give the Z900 its head-turning looks.

Fierce & Predator-like

Key sugomi design elements, like its crouching stance, low-positioned head and upswept tail, give the Z900 a distinct silhouette, making it instantly recognisable as Z Supernaked model. Aggressive lines and minimalist bodywork draw attention to functional beauty.

Sleek & Stylish

Built with symmetry and balance in mind, the seamlessly-integrated front cowl, windscreen and meter impresses with clean, precise design.

Sharp & Aggressive

The LED headlight, taillight, position lamps, license plate lamp and turn signals are aggressively designed and unmistakable.


4.3-inch all-digital TFT (thin-film transistor) colour instrumentation gives the cockpit a high-tech, high-grade appearance and visibility. The screen’s background colour is selectable (black or white), and screen brightness adjusts automatically to suit available light.

Become One

Sporty and relaxed upright ergonomics with heads-up visibility creates a commanding ride position that places the rider “in” the bike for a confident and connected riding experience.

Easy & Relaxed

Seat and footpeg position is an integral part of the rider triangle. Low seat height and tapered seat shape enable easy foot placement at stops. Seat shape is wider at the rear for added comfort and cornering leverage. The footpeg position of the Z900 offers a relaxed knee bend for rider comfort.

Wide & Comfortable

The flat handlebar is wide to provide ideal leverage for higher-speed cornering and low-speed manoeuvring in the city and confined environments.

Thrilling & Lively

Riding a Kawasaki Z Supernaked is a visceral experience. The Z900 makes rider experience a top priority whether you’re throttling through twisty back roads, city streets or cruising the open highway.

Unobstructed Visibility

Sporty upright riding position and minimalist bodywork promotes forward view and places the rider in the environment for heightened excitement and intensity.

Tactile Sensation

The relationship between pegs, seat and handlebars was designed to enhance communication between rider and machine, giving the rider a confidence-inspiring feeling of control that complements its agile handling.

Exhilarating Intake Sound

The infectious intake sound enhances the sensation of acceleration. The engine “inhales” in response to opening the throttle.

Next-Level Tech

Fitted with high-grade electronics, the Z900 merges raw power with the latest advancements in motorcycle technology.

Take Control

Kawasaki TRaction Control (KTRC) features three modes that allow the rider to set the level of electronic assistance for increased rider confidence. Mode 1 provides the least amount of assistance with sport riding in mind. Mode 2 offers earlier assistance and features balanced sport riding support. Mode 3 offers the most assistance, allowing riders to navigate challenging road conditions with confidence.

Personalised Power

Set power delivery to Full Power or limit output (to 55%) with Low Power mode for enhanced manageability, giving you the extra control you need.

Choose Your Style

Riding modes combine KTRC settings and Power Modes to optimise your riding experience, adapting to conditions and preferences. Select between Sport, Road, Rain or Manual and tailor the trip to a variety of situations.
