2020 Kawasaki Z900 ABS Buyers Guide: Specs & Prices

2020 Kawasaki Z900 ABS Buyers Guide - MSRP

The 2020 Kawasaki Z900 ABS received a well-deserved makeover this year, and it earned it by already being an excellent naked upright sport motorcycle. For 2002, the Z900 gets a beefed-up trellis frame with revised suspension settings, Dunlop Sportmax RoadSport 2 tires, a 4.3-inch TFT dash, sharper styling, and an LED headlight. We were already fully satisfied with the power, so we don’t mind that the smooth DOHC inline-4 was touched.

The new frame, suspension tuning, and Dunlops all conspire to improve the handling of the Kawasaki Z900 ABS. Thanks to a curb weight of just 468 pounds, the Z900 is highly maneuverable, making it easy to get the most out of its 948cc displacement powerplant. It is a comfortable motorcycle that you can ride in the canyons all day long, make your way through town on the weekend, or use as a daily commuter.

With the base model 2020 Kawasaki Z900 ABS under $9k, this motorcycle is an outstanding value.
