Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Z900 (2018-2020)
- In line 4 cylinder
- Z900 is comparatively more aggressive, riding and sitting posture vise too. if you want the bike for long rides, il personally select a bike which won't be stressfully to ride. on long rides everything is fine till 3 fuel stops i.e till 500kms aft that you will start feeling it on your body if the bike doesn't suit you or the riding position doesn't suit you. personally it all depends on you. there are riders who have took busa to ladakh as well or do 1k km in a day on a busa. if you are fit enough you can ride z900 also if you ride and you know wat hurts and you really like z900 then you will work on it and figure out a way to ride it longer. hope that helps. ride hard ride safe bro 👍
- Both are very different as you are comparing bullet vs ktm rc it depends on person taste of ride if you want fast and power of inline 4 cylinder engine go for z900 of you are torque lover and like classes look then go for street rod but if you ask me i would definitely choose z900 better test ride both then decide your self i think after test ride you cannot say no to z900
- Z900 is best and most power full bike in segment
- No its not but you can do it it varies from person to person
- If it is first time to ride 4 cylinder bike then definitely you will face difficulty in riding it is quite bigger for beginners don't get me wrong we feel that we can ride easily but it is way different for normal bike's like duke etc. they both are no similar to explain easily the difference between splenor and duke 390 and ns z900 = 1 : 2: 6 🤣🤣if you ask me first take test ride If possible try to ride more powerful bikes of your friends then decide it's height is somewhere around (RE GT 650)
- Try to ride and gain experience with torquish bikes like a duke, rtr 300, yamaha R3 and then jump for a z900. If its your first time don't rush directly for a z900 or even for z800. I understand human greed and passion is hard to control and if you really wish for a high powered bike start with gsx750
- You should have no problems if you know how to ride a powerful motorbike
- Definitely you can if you have prior experience of riding any bike.Before purchasing this beast i was also curious like you and 80% suggestion on internet was not to buy this bike if you don't have experience to handle any sports bike before.Although this bike is enough powerful but if you are good to control your temptation for high speed you are good to go.Also if you are buying 2020 model use rain mode for 1 month before trying road or sports mode. Just chill and enjoy.✌😀
- Better to upgrade between 400-700cc segment. My very first motorcycle was Bajaj pulsar 180 it was the first bike in my state I still remember that feeling of my first motorcycle. Then I got re 350 that I sold out in 3 months was not satisfied with it. Then I waited 6 years for a motorcycle I wanted. It was ktm Rc 390 that I booked in 2014 and it was also the first in state, after that upgraded to Kawasaki er6n (first in my state) and now upgraded with Kawasaki Z900 (first in my state). We need to upgrade slowly if we want to master something.
- Too powerful for you, go to a midsize first, devellop a good feel for it and than go bigger, these big bikes can be lethal!
- These bikes are in two different price rantand engine capacity, so you can’t compare both.Overall I’m using Benelli 600i and using it for past 4 years its really a good bike in terms of power and service.
- Which one has the better dealer network?
- Double power full than 600i

Far batter then a Harley...!! I owned a Harley 48 before... Sold it couple of months back and got this one for me. Performance is much better and the service cost is very low as compared to a harley.
Excellent performance.Great handling great mileage even when you cruise at very high speeds.Best bike for city and highways.Need to be careful on wet roads, Stock tyres are not good enough.

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?
