Before the launch of the Z900 BS6, Kawasaki had launched a Special Edition BS4 model that got the BS6 model's design and features, but with the older motor. The good news is that the Z900 BS6 is priced the same as the BS4 Special Edition, at Rs 7.99 lakh. The Kawasaki Z900 BS6 currently competes with the Triumph Street Triple R.
