Kawasaki Reveals Z650 RS and Z900 RS 50th Anniversary Editions

– Commemorate 50 years of Kawasaki Z1

– Get a special color scheme

– May be launched in India later this year

Kawasaki has removed the 50th Anniversary Editions of the Z650 RS and Z900 RS for international markets. The bikes, which will be available in limited numbers, are built to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the iconic Kawasaki Z1.

So, in true Anniversary Edition style, the Z650 RS and Z900 RS are inspired by the Z1 and are decorated in the ‘Firecracker Red’ livery. The color scheme, which now seems a long way off for Kawasaki, was once the most requested option and in a way fits perfectly with today’s retro-styled RS models. And to complete the look, both bikes also get contrasting gold rims and a chrome handle.

However, other than the cosmetic changes, the Z650 RS and Z900 RS remain the same in terms of engine, hardware and features. Both motorcycles will make their way to the Japanese market next month before being introduced to other global markets. Although it has not been confirmed, the motorcycles could make their way to India later this year.
