re: Kawasaki Z900 RS (W800 replacement), now launched at 16.47 lakhs

Pricing in the UAE is absurd as well.

The dealer in Dubai charges about AED56k (~INR 11Lakhs) for the Z900RS and AED60K (~INR 12 Lakhs) for the Cafe Racer for the 2019 models.

Compare that to the 2019 US pricing of $11,199 (~INR 8.1 Lakhs) for the Z900rs and $11,699 (~INR8.4 Lakhs) for the Cafe Racer.

Wow! Congrats.

Dream bike for many of us, except for the ridiculous pricing from Kawasaki. Looking forward to your ownership experiences.

Sir, first request would be a video of the glorious motor revving.

When you ride along, if we ever cross paths in Coimbatore, would be good if we could have a closer audience of the beauty as well. Wishing you happy and safe miles ahead.

Definitely. Watch out for my Initial Ownership Report wherein I will try to cover all these points.

I am a fan of the RS too .. but unfortunately, it was out of my budget, the way it was priced in India.

My excitement and happiness was so short lived :( nevertheless Congrats on the Z900. The black on green frame color looks amazing. Sad they stopped the grey colour - that was the best color on the Z.

Apologies on that one - I was not paying attention to the Title of the thread when I made that post.

And I opened this thread thinking there was a massive sale on the left over RS with discounts of 5 to 6 lakhs and would have been rushing to call the dealership!

There was one sold by the Mumbai dealership Anzen Kawasaki.

Below is a video of the bike before it was delivered to the owner.



Wonder what will be the landed cost in India of the SE variant if it is launched in India.

The Z900 costs 8.5 ex-showroom.

Iíd be willing to pay 12-13l ex-showroom for the Z900RS SE. About 1-2l more than the Street Triple RS.

Even if itís a CBU, which means 20% road tax in MH, itís fine. This is such a delicious bike!

Anything more than 13l ex-showroom would be excessive.

The SE version is a more premium version of the regular Z900 RS as it has an Ohlins rear suspension and Brembo callipers upfront among other tweaks.

As the regular version is priced at over 15 lacs in India this will definitely command a premium over it if its launched in India as currently its limited to UK only.
