Unwrapped at the ongoing EICMA show, Kawasaki had a wardrobe makeover for the Z900RS retro motorcycle to give us the 2018 Kawasaki Ninja Z900RS Cafe.

The Cafe is not much different. Its underpinned by the same mechanicals as the standard RS but gets the obvious headlamp cowl, scalloped lower seat that is ribbed and lowered bars to give it a sportier progress and feel.

And that beautiful looking lairy green and white paintjob, a reminiscent of the KR250/500 of the late ’70s. It compliments the blacked out frame, forks, footpegs wheels and engine to give out a bold appearance. Enough for it to stand out amidst the rest of the Cafe-Racers flooded in the market.
