Superior Suspension
The large-diameter gold-colored inverted fork with greater adjustability is complemented by a Öhlins S46 rear shock for increased ride comfort and a superior sense of grip and handling.  The rear suspension is also equipped with a remote preload adjuster, which makes it easy to adjust settings without tools to suit tandem riding or luggage. 

Brembo Brakes
The front brake package with Brembo components offers stronger stopping power and contributes to even more precise control and greater ease of use. The ø300 mm Brembo front discs and M4.32 radial-mount monobloc calipers are complemented by a Nissin radial-pump master cylinder with stainless-steel braided lines to deliver greater stopping power and a more linear progression when operating the brake lever.

All-LED Lighting
New LED headlamp, position lamps, licence plate lamp and turn signals† add to the Z900’s sharper new styling.

TFT Colour Instrumentation
The new all-digital TFT colour instrumentation gives the cockpit a high-tech, high-grade appearance. The new meter also offers additional features unavailable on the previous model.

Latest Evolution of Z Sugomi Styling
While the Z900’s distinctive sugomi design elements (crouching stance, low-positioned head and upswept tail) remain unchanged, its eye-catching styling benefits from a number of updates that make its aggressive design even sharper.

KTRC (Kawasaki Traction Control)
Kawasaki's advanced traction control system provides both enhanced sport riding performance and the peace of mind to negotiate low-traction surfaces with confidence. Three riderselectable modes offer progressively greater levels of intrusion to suit the riding situation and rider preference.

New Tyres
New Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tyres contribute to the Z900’s handling character.

Integrated Riding Modes
All-inclusive Riding modes that link KTRC and Power Mode allow riders to easily set traction control and power delivery to suit a given riding situation. Riders can choose from three settings (Sport, Road, Rain) or a manual setting (Rider). In the manual Rider mode, each of the systems can be set independently

Power Mode Selection
A choice of Full Power or Low Power modes allows riders to set power delivery to suit preference and conditions. Low Power mode limits output to approximately 55% of Full Power. (The reduced power, which varies according to engine speed (rpm) and throttle position, offers enhanced manageability.)

Smartphone Connectivity
A 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.
