Kawasaki: Z1’s 50th anniversary could mean a new Z900RS SE


Yesterday Kawasaki released a small teaser video in commemoration of the Z1’s 50th anniversary (see above).

Although this appears to be the standard preview of a new machine, RideApart argues that we could very well have something a little… bigger in our hands.

And bigger is always better, right?

The clue can be found in the stylized naked bike we see hovering over the “Z50th” tag towards the end of the video. Young Machine – the source of Rideapart’s thoughts – thinks the new beast coming our way could very well be a candy brown Z900RS SE – a tribute to the classic Z1 and a really nice addition to the Team Green fleet.

Young Machine has more to support their case. Apparently, when the yellow SE balloon bound for the EU was unveiled, “the publication asked if it was the 50th anniversary bike. At that point, Kawasaki categorically said that was not the case. ”

Additionally, when the Japanese motorcycle maker unveiled five new bikes in early October, it also posted another image on its social media platform, alluding to three more bikes to be revealed, with the date set at EICMA 2021. , November 23.

Either way, we think RideApart is right – and if there is is is going to be a candy brown Z900RS SE coming out of the Kawi factories, we’ll likely see it at EICMA (along with the other two critters) by November 23.

Time will tell what Team Green does; in the meantime, stay tuned for updates, be sure to check out Kawi’s plans for “Concept J,” their three-wheeled track bike, and as always, stay safe on the corners.
