Kawasaki, a Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer, has introduced the middleweight sport-naked 2023 Z900 motorcycle in India. In addition, the new 2023 Kawasaki Z900 costs Rs. 8.93 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
Two new colour combinations are now available for the 2023 Kawasaki Z900 middleweight sport-naked motorcycle: Metallic Phantom Silver/Metallic Carbon Grey and Ebony/Metallic Matte Graphene Steel Grey. The 2023 Kawasaki Z900 also includes a few graphics to give the motorcycle a slightly more interesting appearance.
Overall, despite having new colour options, the 2023 Kawasaki Z900 middleweight sport-naked motorcycle is largely unchanged from the model it replaces. The 2023 Kawasaki Z900 middleweight sport-naked motorcycle, however, commands a price premium of Rs 51,000 over the outgoing model despite the minimal changes.

Further, the tried-and-true steel trellis frame is still used in the middleweight sport-naked motorcycle. Furthermore, the Kawasaki Z900 sport-naked motorcycle still benefits from the large 17-inch fuel tank’s muscular stance.
Although winglets are popular among two-wheelers and are a newer model, Kawasaki has not added any aerodynamic features to the 2023 Kawasaki Z900, nor does it have a “Ram Intake” system like the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R motorcycle.
