New Kawasaki Z900 for sale in Cairns

2017 Z900

Kawasaki has long believed that Supernaked models should be more than supersport machines stripped of their full-fairing bodywork. Designed with sugomi performance for maximum riding pleasure, the new Z900 mounts a 948 cm3 In-Line Four engine in an all-new ultra-lightweight frame. The choice of a 900cc-class In-Line Four was no accident; every twist of the throttle is rewarded by crisp, smooth response and exhilarating acceleration. But although the engine becomes more exciting the higher the revs climb, its smooth power delivery makes it extremely manageable. The lightweight chassis offers the same duality; nimble handling lends itself to spirited sports riding, while the Z900's light weight and low seat height make it easy to control. Like many legendary Kawasaki 900cc-class In-Line Four machines (Z1, Ninja/GPz900R, Ninja ZX-9R), the Z900's package delivers a sublime balance of power and handling - ideal for a Supernaked model.

New Z900
Z900 Exciting In-Line Four Engine

Exciting In-Line Four Engine

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. Adding to rider exhilaration, a distinct intake note encourages you to twist the throttle. Silky smooth power delivery facilitates control while contributing to rider comfort and confidence.

Z900 Exhaust System

Exhaust System

The exhaust system features a 4-into-1-pre-chamber-into-silencer layout. The header pipes and pre-chamber are unitised. 35 mm exhaust headers contribute to high-rpm performance. Joint pipes linking the exhaust headers (headers 1-4, 2-3 are linked) contribute to stronger mid-range torque for improved feeling.

Z900 Enhanced Intake Note

Enhanced Intake Note

After the 2014-2016 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.

Z900 All-New Trellis Frame

All-New Trellis Frame

The all new frame weighs only 13.5 kg and contributes significantly to the bike's light, nimble handling. Components of the high-tensile steel trellis frame follow the ideal pipe line. The lines of the frame were made as straight as possible, and when bends were necessary their angles were made as small as possible, resulting in a design that disperses stress extremely well.
