The 948cc inline four-cylinder engine delivers raw power with incredible torque, broad power delivery and exhilarating acceleration.
The Z900 ABS chassis is lightweight, narrow and strong. Front and rear suspension settings are designed to match the frame. While Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tires—made of high-performance rubber—boost handling and provide optimum grip.
The 41mm inverted front fork with adjustable rebound damping and spring preload is responsive and progressive for confident handling with a high level of feedback.
The horizontal back-link rear suspension with adjustable spring preload and stepless rebound damping contributes to a high level of handling response, ride comfort and rear wheel traction.
The Z900 ABS motorcycle features short gearing for quicker shifts and exhilarating acceleration in urban environments and backroads.
An Assist and Slipper clutch provides a lighter feel at the lever and a back-torque limiting function that helps prevent rear-wheel hop during more aggressive downshifts.
With an optimized power-to-weight ratio, the Z900 ABS motorcycle delivers the ultimate supernaked performance.
The muscular image is inspired by Sugomi™, a design philosophy that integrates aggressive lines with minimalist bodywork to draw attention to functional beauty.
Built with symmetry and balance in mind, the seamlessly-integrated front cowl, windscreen and meter impresses with clean, precise design.
The LED headlamp, position lamps, license plate lamp and turn signals are agressively designed and unmistakable.
4.3-inch all-digital TFT (thin-film transistor) color instrumentation gives the cockpit a high-tech, high-grade appearance and visibility. The screen’s background color is selectable (black or white), and screen brightness adjusts automatically to suit available light.
Featuring Sugomi™-inspired styling, the Z900 ABS motorcycle has noticeably aggressive shrouds, fuel tank cover, and under cowls. They're compact and undeniably contribute to the sharp image.
Seat and footpeg position is an integral part of the rider triangle. Low seat height and tapered seat shape for easy foot placement at stops. Seat shape is wide at the rear for added comfort and cornering leverage. The footpeg position of the Z900 ABS motorcycle offers a relaxed knee bend for rider comfort.
A wide flat handlebar provides ideal leverage for higher-speed cornering and low-speed maneuvering in the city and confined environments.
Sporty and relaxed upright ergonomics with heads-up visibility allows for a commanding ride position that places the rider “in” the bike for a confident and connected riding experience.
Sporty upright riding position and minimalist bodywork promotes forward view and places the rider in the environment for heightened excitement and intensity.
Constructed from high-tensile steel, the stronger trellis frame adds strength to the swingarm pivot. Along with highly capable suspension settings, the horizontal-backed linked rear suspension positions the shock unit and linkage above the lightweight aluminum swing arm to deliver sporty performance and comfort.
The infectious intake sound enhances the sensation of acceleration. The engine “inhales” in response to opening the throttle.
The Z900 ABS motorcycle makes rider experience a top priority whether you’re throttling through twisty back roads, city streets or cruising the open highway.
