EXCITING IN-LINE FOUR ENGINE
With Digital Fuel Injection the powerful 948 cm³ liquid-cooled, 4-stroke In-line Four engine has a quick-revving character and a strong mid-range hit that pulls strongly to the redline.

KTRC (KAWASAKI TRACTION CONTROL)

MORE EXCITING EXHAUST SOUND
Revised internal construction for the pre-chamber and silencer contributes to a more voluminous exhaust note - much more audible on startup, when idling, and when snapping the throttle.
ENHANCED INTAKE NOTE
After the 2014-2017 Z1000, the Z900 is the second model to benefit from “sound research” in crafting its intake note. Shape of the airbox was designed based on acoustic tests. The distinct intake note of the Z900 is clear and exhilarating. The frequency of the note varies with engine speed, adding to riding impact – especially at high rpm. Airbox inlet faces upwards, making the intake note easier to hear for the rider.
EXTRUDED ALUMINIUM SWINGARM
Extruded aluminium swingarm weighs only 3.9 kg, contributing to low unsprung weight, which in turn contributes to the bike’s light, nimble handling.
Bluetooth technology built into the instrument panel enables riders to connect to their motorcycle wirelessly. Using the smartphone application "RIDEOLOGY THE APP". a number of instrument functions can be accessed, contributing to an enhanced motorcycling experience, features include, Vehicle log, Riding log, Telephone notices, tuning and General settings.
ERGONOMICS FOR CONTROL

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. Wide steering angle facilitates low-speed maneuvering.
SPORT RIDERS SEAT
