New Z900 rs Cafe Racer Video (official)

The original Z1 café racer was the Z1-R.
Don't see much styling taken from that into this one.

One of them ladies is a bloke (TULA) :shock:
First sex change model caused a right old rumpus at the time.

Still not sure about the bike maybe a grower?

Hmm ....

Nope, sorry guys you missed that by a country mile. This offering is pure crap. :roll:
Why do I persist in debating with idiots ? I really should know better :)

Not a fan of these “New Pretenders”, but I must admit I quite like this Cafe Racer model.
And on the 7th day... Zeds were created!

The great thing about biking is individuals with different tastes and backgrounds sharing a common interest. Modern Retros will always be Marmite that is what makes it interesting. I doubt Kawasaki ever set out to recreate the Z1 or even the nostalgia of the era. Just great modern bikes with a hint of retro as an alternative to the bland looking plastic race reps.

Personally I prefer the Cafe Racer to other one, would I part with my Z1b for one? Probably not.
