The 2020 Kawasaki Z900 was recently launched in India. It is to be noted that the 2020 Kawasaki Z900 is the automaker’s first BS6 complaint offering in India which costs between Rs 8.5 lakh to Rs 9 lakh (ex-showroom). Also, the 2020 Kawasaki Z900 is a Euro5 compliant. The motorcycle made its world debut at the 2019 EICMA in Italy. It comes with the much-needed upgrades. On the competition front in India, the 2020 Kawasaki Z900 is up against the Triumph Street Triple S, Suzuki GSX-S750 and the KTM 790 Duke.
Visually, the motorcycle’s design is slightly revised as compared to the current model. However, it gets a new LED headlamp, smartphone connectivity via the Kawasaki Rideaology App, and a new 10.9 cm TFT instrument console. It comes with four riding modes - Sport, Rain, Road and Manual, three-level traction control and two power modes. It is worth mentioning here that the bike continues to get its signature Z-shaped LED tail-lamp.
Under the hood, the 2020 Kawasaki Z900 comes equipped with a 948cc, inline-four engine that meets BS6 norms. The powertrain belts out 125hp at 9,500rpm and 98.6Nm at 7,700rpm. It is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Interestingly, the front and rear suspension units are the same, and so are the brakes.
