No matter what type of motorcycle you’re looking for, Kawasaki’s 2024 lineup has the model for you as it welcomes the return of several retro sport, hypernaked, supernaked, mini naked, hypersport, supersport, sport, retro classic, cruisers, adventure touring and dual-sport models to its street motorcycle lineup. These 2024 model-year motorcycles are set to arrive in Kawasaki dealerships during the fall months so that riders can continue to “Let the Good Times Roll.”

Retro Sport

Updated Z650RS ABS

The Kawasaki Z650RS ABS continues to be a staple in the Z motorcycle lineup in 2024. It’s a true middleweight retro sport that combines timeless looks inherited from the Z900RS with a compact, responsive package that riders will love to enjoy daily. The Z650RS ABS has a fun and easy character and features a parallel-twin 649cc engine, lightweight trellis frame, telescopic front fork and horizontal back-link rear suspension, dual-dial instrumentation with multi-function LCD screen, round LED headlight, spoke-style cast wheels, disc brakes with standard anti-lock brakes (ABS), assist and slipper clutch, and a relaxed retro-style riding position. Distinguishing itself from its bigger Z900RS sibling is a slimmer fuel tank and a shorter, more compact tail.

For 2024, the Z650RS ABS receives Kawasaki TRaction Control (KTRC), Kawasaki’s advanced traction control system that provides both enhanced sport riding performance and the peace of mind under certain conditions to negotiate low-traction surfaces with confidence. The system looks at a number of parameters to get an accurate, real-time picture and allows riders to select between two modes to suit their riding situation and preference. Mode 1 is the least intrusive, helping to manage traction during cornering and designed with sport riding in mind. This mode facilitates acceleration out of corners by maximizing forward drive from the rear wheel. In Mode 2, intervention occurs earlier, meaning when excessive wheel spin is detected the engine output is reduced to allow grip to be regained. This helps riders navigate wet pavement or bad stretches of road. Additionally, riders may elect to turn the system off.

The Z650RS ABS is available in Ebony/Metallic Matte Carbon Grey with an MSRP of $9,599.

Z900RS ABS/Z900RS CAFE ABS/Z900RS SE ABS

Reigniting the classic style of the original Z1 900 motorcycle, the Kawasaki Z900RS ABS retro-sport motorcycle calls upon timeless design elements with minimal bodywork and no fairing for a pure retro-style look.

For 2024, the Z900RS ABS comes in a Metallic Diablo Black paint scheme with an MSRP of $12,149. The Z900RS CAFE ABS adds café-racer styling, including a front cowl and a café-inspired seat along with a drop handlebar and is available in Metallic Diablo Black with an MSRP of $12,899. The 2024 Z900RS SE ABS pays homage to the iconic old-school Z models with its timeless looks and features several high-performance upgrades, including an Öhlins S46 rear shock with remote preload adjuster, Brembo front brake package featuring M4.32 calipers and special suspension settings. It’s available in Metallic Diablo Black with an MSRP of $14,149.

Superior power requires matched stopping power, and the Z H2 SE ABS comes with Brembo Stylema Monobloc brake calipers, a Brembo front brake master cylinder and steel-braided lines, offering riders strong braking performance and enhanced control.
