As the suffix “900” suggests, this Japanese two-wheeler is a superbike. The Japanese bike manufacturer has positioned the Z900 between the Z650 RS and the Z H2. The BS6 iteration of the Kawasaki Z900 has the same engine output as the BS4 but comes with a retuned suspension and is 2 kg heavier than the BS4 model. It’s tacit that this bike only caters to performance-oriented buyers.
However, Kawasaki’s Ninja bikes are among the top-selling performance bikes in the country. But if you have a budget for other 900cc bikes, such as the BMW F900R, Ducati Monster, and Triumph Street Triple R, you should consider the Yamaha Z900 as well. It’s one of the fastest bikes in the business!
Yamaha Z900 Engine and other Specifications
As mentioned before, the Yamaha F900 is one of the fastest naked street bikes available on the market. This Japan-made super sports bike has a trellis-style, high-tensile steel frame that supports a 948 cc, four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that churns out 123.64 bhp at 9,500 rpm and 98.6 Nm at 7,700 rpm. At the same time, this bike also has a Power Mode Selection feature, which allows the rider to configure the engine output as per the road condition. The Low Power Mode reduces the engine’s performance by 55%. Hence, the bike can turn out to be more fuel efficient. The Yamaha Z900 stores its fuel in a 17-litre fuel tank.
Further, this bike also has three riding modes: Sport, Road, Rain, and Rider. The Sport mode, as the name suggests, makes the bike run at peak performance. The Road and Rain modes decrease the throttle response by making the bike run at low revs. As for the Rider mode, the bike lets the rider manually configure each mode as per preferences.
Like other BS6 bikes, this Yamaha bike also has fuel injection technology that makes this two-wheeler’s engine more refined, resulting in better fuel economy. For your reference, the purpose of the transition from BS4 to BS6 was to use fuel-injected engines, especially on two-wheelers. The fuel injection system makes the fuel supply system cleaner and more efficient than the BS4 engines. Apart from that, there are several advantages of having a fuel-injected engine.
In addition, you can consider other Kawasaki bikes from the Z-Series. The entry-level Z model is the Kawasaki Z650. It has a starting ex-showroom price of Rs 6.43 lakh, Delhi, as of January 2023.
Moreover, this Japanese bike sends the power to its rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. The type of clutch used on this bike is a wet-multi-plate. This lubricated multiplate clutch is much better than the conventional dry multiplate. It lasts longer and offers buttery-smooth gear shifts at low and high revs, unlike the predecessor.
As for the suspension setup, this Japanese bike has an Inverted Fork with rebound damping and spring pre-load adjustability of 120mm. That is at the front. The rear end, on the other hand, gets a Horizontal Back-link with rebound damping and spring preload adjustability of 140mm. Since it is a performance bike, expect the rideability to be on the stiffer side. Stiffer the suspension, the better the stability. The bike will feel more planted at high speeds. That said, you can also make a sharp cornering. Speaking of which, please do not ride at high speeds in the city.

The Yamaha Z900, being an expensive bike has a dual-disc brake setup as standard. The size of the front disc brake is 300mm, while the rear disc brake has a size of 250mm.
This setup works in tandem with a dual-channel ABS. For reference, the combination of dual-disc brakes and dual-channel ABS reduces the chances of mishaps on the road. Just so you know, the dual-channel ABS make both wheels stop at the same time, which prevents the bike from skidding or making a stoppie.
