Features

Ergonomics & Experience

  • MAN AND MACHINE BECOME ONE: Everything built in and around the lightweight chassis of the Z900 supernaked is designed to become an extension of you.
  • Natural upright seating with heads-up visibility. Commanding ride position places the rider "in" the bike for a confident and connected riding experience.
  • Low seat height and tapered seat shape makes the ground easy to reach at stops. Seat shape is wider at the rear for added comfort and cornering leverage.
  • Footpeg position offers a relaxed knee bend for rider comfort.
  • Flat handlebar is wide to provide ideal leverage for higher-speed cornering and low-speed maneuvering in city and confined environments.
  • Sporty upright seating and minimalist bodywork exposes the rider to the environment for heightened excitement and intensity
  • Upright ergonomic position promotes forward view
  • Intake sound is accentuated to enhance the sensation of acceleration. Engine "inhales" in response to throttle.
  • Chassis and suspension provide lively feedback from engine and road to make the bike feel alive

Performance

  • SUPERB BALANCE OF POWER AND HANDLING: Power-to-weight ratio is optimized for ultimate supernaked perforamance
  • SPORTY, HIGH-SPEC SUSPENSION: Responsive and progressive for confident handling with a high level of feedback.
  • MODERN, LIGHTWEIGHT 948 CC INLINE 4-CYLINDER ENGINE: Raw power with incredible torque and broad power delivery that makes the bike exciting yet easy to ride.
  • ASSIST & SLIPPER CLUTCH: A light pull at the lever (assist) and smooth shifting enables confident downshifts with minimal rear wheel chatter (slipper).
  • SHORT GEARING: Exhilarating acceleration in urban environments and backroads.
  • HORIZONTAL BACK-LINK REAR SUSPENSION: Contributes to high level of handling response, ride comfort and rear wheel traction.
  • LIGHT OVERALL WEIGHT AND NARROW CHASSIS: Contributes to easy and responsive handling while allowing easy foot placement on the ground at stops.

Z Styling

  • AGGRESSIVE Z STYLING: Dominant front face and sharp, minimalist bodywork. Exposed trells frame juxtaposes against refined fit and finish.
