2020 Kawasaki Z900 First Ride Review

  2020 Kawasaki Z900 First Ride Review 2020 Kawasaki Z900 First Ride ReviewThe overall feel of the Z900 has come a long way from 2019 with the addition of switchable traction control, independently selectable power modes, four ride modes, and the 4.3-inch full-color TFT through which it’s all controlled. For a price increase of $600, the added safety, comfort, and performance benefits are significant. The more time I spent on the bike, the more impressed I was with both the motorcycle and its price tag.

Kawasaki’s Z650 ABS has always been an affordable option for smaller-sized riders looking for a capable naked bike that won’t be as easy to outgrow as Team Green’s smaller-displacement offerings. Read the 2020 Kawasaki Z650 ABS First Look Preview to get up to speed on this year’s updates. In this video, we swing a leg over it and evaluate its capability and how it slots into the naked bike segment.
