Kawasaki Z900 gets TFT display with Bluetooth connectivity as well as electronics safety package
As we updated before about the Kawasaki Z650 getting the required modernisation upgrades, similar updates have been done to the monster of a motorcycle, the Kawasaki Z900. In the 2020 iteration of the Z900, it gets the LED headlight along with electronics aids for the rider as well as BS6 compliant engine.
The first thing to speak about is the electronics package as the bike will now come with a three-level traction control system, two power modes along with four riding modes (Sport, Road, Rain, and Manual) all of which were absent in the previous-generation Z900 which is currently on sale in India.
There is an inclusion of full LED lights as well as a 4.3-inch full-colour TFT display. The instrument display can be connected to the rider’s smartphone via Kawasaki’s Rideology app. Through the application, you can change the power settings, traction control levels as well as choose the ride mode. You can also get all the bike’s information, service reminders, ride logs in the app.
Powering the new 2020 Z900 is the same 948cc inline 4-cylinder engine which is now BS6 compliant. This powerplant pumps out 123bhp at 9500rpm and 98.6Nm at 7700rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox which is fitted with assist and slipper clutch.
Rest of the bike is remained untouched with the frame, suspension, and brakes continue to work their part as they did in the old version.
At present, the Kawasaki Z900 retails at Rs 7.69 lakh ex-showroom. Kawasaki will bring the bike on Indian shores next year with a premium of at least Rs 1 lakh. Hence, the price of 2020 Z900 will be around Rs 8.70 lakh ex-showroom.
