    Re: Who is going for the new Z900RS?

    If it was $8995 and had the z900 engine with 125 h.p. (not detuned)
    And a helmet lock like the ZRX

    I would buy one today.

    The xsr900 is not detuned. Sheesh

    Re: Who is going for the new Z900RS?

    It is about $1500 more than the Z900

    "‘But it’s higher spec than the Z900, with radial-mounted front brake calipers and added traction control, with two levels of intervention plus off.

    ‘It’s got a “fundamentally different chassis” to the Z900, according to Kawasaki - still tubular steel but with the top tubes closer together to accommodate the new teardrop-shaped tank and the sub-frame straighter to make for a more horizontal rider and pillion seat.

    ‘The 948cc in-line-four has been detuned. Claimed peak power is now 111hp at 8,500rpm instead of 125hp at 9,500rpm. Peak torque is down very slightly, from 72.7lbft to 72.6lbft, but now occurs at 6,500rpm instead of 7,700rpm. Kawasaki says the pay-off is stronger low-to-mid-range torque and that seems to be the case. First gear has also been shortened.

    IF it has more lowend, then why the shorter first gear?
    ...that's right...

    The build quality is also better. This is made in Japan where the Z900 is made in Thailand.

    Not so sure I'm buying that. People in all countries are equally capable. As long as they are trained and supervised the same way, using the same resources, there shouldn't be a difference in quality.

    Still... there are. In an ideal world it should be like that. Unfortunately we don't live in an ideal world.

    I should have mentioned that Mama Kaw's reputation is on the line. They have to keep their product's quality in line with their competitors and their own standards, so they have sufficient incentive to hire, train and supervise properly. Where the factory is located shouldn't make a difference.

    Just have a look at the 2 bikes side-by-side and you'll see what I mean. It may not be because it's built in Japan-land, but it's built better nonetheless.
    Also, look at a VW Jetta built in Germany vs. a Jetta built in Mexico. We got the Hybrid over here for a while which was built in Mexico, while the 'normal' Jetta's came from Germany.
    Same car but they are WORLDS apart.
