The Kawasaki Z900 has garnered a lot of praise ever since it was launched in India. We too were smitten bit when we did a test ride of the same. Needless to say, it looks like something that the alien in ‘Predator’ movie would ride. The Z-900 is available in 2 new colures in India, which are the usual Kawasaki Lime Green and the grey and green dual-tone option. The Kawasaki Z900 carries what is called Sugomi styling and engineering philosophy. It sure does look butch. In response to the serious approval that the bike got, Kawasaki publicized that it will be launching a new color for the Z-900, for the 2018 model. The new color in question is called Candy Persimmon Red. The catch is that this announcement holds good only for European markets at present.
But we have hopes that Kawasaki India will have the good sense of bringing this colored model to India as well. Only because it looks rather good! Traditionally, Kawasaki bikes have been associated with the lime green color. The red color Z900 pictured here comes as a rather refreshing change. Apart from the new color, Kawasaki will also offer updated graphics on the other colors the Z900 is offered in. The Kawasaki Z900 will be offered in four color options, internationally. The red Z900 will be on sale from October 2017. As far as the mechanicals are concerned, the Kawasaki Z-900 still acquires a 948-cc in-line four motor, which creates 123 bhp at 9,500 rpm and 98 Nm of peak torque at 7,700 rpm. Kawasaki India recently launched a no-frills, base variant of the Z900 at an attractive price of Rs.7.68 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
