2017 Kawasaki Z900: All You Need To Know

Kawasaki is on a roll. One of the Big Four from Japan, the brand makes some great motorcycles. They range from the small displacement Ninja 300 to the mind-boggling supercharged H2R. Between these two poles are a number of bikes that you can buy. One of them is the Z900. This bike is one of the motorcycles you can use on a daily basis. Why? Its ergonomics are upright and the lack of fairing means that it does not scream all sporty and/or racy. So, let’s get into the 2017 Kawasaki Z900 price in USA, specifications and features.

Yes, the 2017 Kawasaki Z900 can be had in two variants. However, we suggest you go with the ABS variant as it is not as costly as you may think. Shelling out an additional $400 on a bike costing more than $8,000 should not be a big deal now, should it?
