2018 Kawasaki Z900RS Review

Video first impressions of Kawasaki’s Retro Sport 900

Kawasaki Motors Corp. recently invited us to ride the new Z900 Retro Sport along the Pacific Coast Highway and through the hills of Malibu, California. While we only covered about 60 miles, we rode straight and fast highways, congested city streets, and some pretty tight and technical canyons—giving us a small glimpse of how the bike performs in a variety of situations.

From the classic paint scheme to the iconic tailsection, the Z900RS harkens back to the glory days of superbikes while still looking and performing like a modern motorcycle. We love the aesthetics and think this bike has incredible potential once the engineers work out that twitchy throttle!

Check out the more in-depth written review here and stay tuned for more once we get an in-house model for further testing.
