Wow. Looks like the Z1/ZRX theme is popular. Looks like an expensive way to make a new bike look older, kinda like the Whitehouse K10 kit for the CB11. I like it! (but probably couldn't afford it).

If Kaw were to roll out some factory version of this, I'd be very interested.

Thanks!

There are a lot of Kawi fans in the world. They actually had 2 retros back in the 90's that looked good and were before their times a 750 and an 1100 I think called Zephyrs.

Actually my CB1100 dlx reminds me a whole lot of my 1977 KZ1000

My first ride on a real motorcycle was on the back of my cousin's Z1, I think in '72 or '73. That was some bike. He misses it to this day.

If you come to a fork in the road, take it!

I'm predicting it right now. Kawasaki is going to blow away everyone else in the Retro Standard market with this release.

I say this why? Because obviously Z900RS = Z900 RLETS Standard. Bravo Kawasaki!

They've obviously been paying attention to the ever growing movement taking place.

Unfortunately, it appears this is the new Z900.

I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but that is not doing anything for and I'm being polite. Guess it is for the Transformers generation.

If the new kwaka looked anything like my old girl I could easily swap the CB1100 in the background.İmage

There are only so many retro buyers out in this world and many can't afford the payment being on social security.
