Following the launch of the 2019 Kawasaki Versys 650, India Kawasaki Motors has launched the 2019 Kawasaki Z900 in India, priced at INR 7.68 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
Bookings for the 2019 Kawasaki Z900 are open at Kawasaki dealerships across the country. The new Z900 is available in three colour options - Metallic Moondust Grey / Ebony, Pearl Flat Stardust White / Metallic Spark Black, and Metallic Flat Spark Black / Metallic Spark Black.
Apart from the three paint schemes and new graphics, the 2019 Kawasaki Z900 continues unchanged. According to Kawasaki, the Z900 is a rider-focused naked streetfighter that offers a perfect balance between power and handling. The Z900 uses an all-new lightweight frame along with an aluminium swingarm.
Speaking on occasion, Mr Yutaka Yamashita, Managing Director - India Kawasaki Motors, said -
Z900 is considered as one of the most affordable in-line 4 superbikes in India. But not only the price, but due to its all-round package, Z900 has done really well in the Indian market. It is an ideal commuter during the week and fun to ride on a track. We would like to see our customers opting for Kawasaki genuine accessories to enhance the bike further.
The 2019 Kawasaki Z900 employs the same 948 cc, liquid-cooled, In-line four-cylinder engine. The fuel-injected motor produces 123.3 bhp of maximum power and 98.6 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission with a standard slip-assist clutch.
