First Look: 2018 Kawasaki Z900RS Cafe

The Z900RS looks like something I might want to buy. I don't get this urge often these days as most modern bikes don't interest me in the least but this one looks sweet. I am not a fan of cafe bikes nor Kaw green bikes (sorry) so the RS version and not the cafe are on my shopping list.

I didn't see a center stand which I would want. Also, it appears to me that they could have made the seat a little more comfortable.

It is water cooled which is a great thing in my opinion. The Honda CB1100 is not. It only has an oil cooler. A couple of things I like about my old 85ZN700 is that it is shaft drive and has a center stand. Shaft drive has disappeared from the less expensive bikes because of the added expense and the added weight.

That RS looks really sweet. I am a fan of cafe bikes but not this particular take on it. The RS on the other hand looks like a great re-interpretation of the original.
