Q. I am planning to buy Z900, how is the bike? One can sit on pillion seat or not?. How is the heat exhaust coming from engine?
  • The Z900 is now powered by a 948cc, liquid-cooled, inline four-cylinder engine that has been derived from the Z1000’s engine. The engine has the same bore as the Z1000 but the stroke is now shorter. Output stands at 125PS, produced at a lower 9500rpm as compared to the Z800’s 113PS that was produced at a higher 10,200rpm. Peak torque has jumped to 100Nm from the Z800’s 83Nm that was produced at 8000rpm. The crank is lighter to help the motor rev quicker, and effectively, the Z900 should feel more eager even at lower revs. This should make it feel more athletic and improve usability at low speeds in city conditions. Like the Z1000, Kawasaki claims the Z900 will also boast of a more prominent intake sound when accelerating, adding to its theatrics. Talking about pillion seat, its pillion seat cowl raises the rear to a significant amount so much that everyone who swung a leg over the Z invariably kicked the cowl at least once.

While it wasn’t perfect, Kawasaki’s hot-selling Z800 was a very tempting package. Will its successor, the Z900, stamp its authority in the mid-displacement category too?
