2016 Milano Show: Kawasaki displays 3 models including Z900 and Z650

Kawasaki displayed three new models at the Milano Show in Italy, which opened its doors November 8. The three models were the Z900, Z650 and Versys-X300.

The Z900 is the new model of the naked sport Z series. Its 948cc liquid cooling 4-cylinder engine and newly built trellis frame give it both a powerful engine performance and sporty handling. Its standout features are its aggressive design and luxury exterior.

The new middle-class model for the Z series is the Z650. Its 649cc liquid cooling 2-cylinder engine, which performs especially well at the low and mid rotation range, and new frame’s light construction give it a comfortable and agile riding performance.

The Versys-X300 is the new model for the Versys series, which aims to produce bikes that are fun to ride anywhere and anytime. It adds off-road riding to the series’ wide range of uses. Its excellent performance on unpaved roads aims to make it a bike that’s fun and easy-to-ride in a wide range of conditions.

It also made the world premiere the Z1000R Edition at the show. The Z1000R Edition was already unveiled in Europe, but this was the public’s first glimpse of the actual model. A variation model of the Z series’ Z1000 largest engine displacement model, it has a Brembo brake system and Ohlins rear suspension.
