Suspension duties on the motorcycle are taken care of by 41mm inverted forks on the front side and horizontal back-link, gas-charged shock absorbers on the rear end.
The Kawasaki Z900RS SE carries a price-tag of £12,499 (around Rs. 12.7 lakh) in the UK and will be up for sale from next year. However, no details related to its availability in India have been disclosed.
