Kawasaki celebrates the 50th anniversary of its iconic Z line with limited production runs of the Z900, Z650, Z900RS and the Z650RS in throwback colorways.
2022 is the 50th anniversary of the legendary Z lineup of motorcycles and Kawasaki celebrating in a major way. It was in 1974 when the Kawasaki super4 900 received the moniker of Z1. The Z, being the last letter of the English alphabet, was based on the notion that there was nothing coming after it as, at the time, it was the ultimate.
The Kawasaki Z line continued to grow and introduced more models to the range. In 2014, the Z line took on a new direction with the Z1000 which featured Sugomi styling. Thisl blazed the trail for Kawasaki’s dominance in the super/hyper naked class.
To mark 50 years of legacy, Kawasaki announced limited production runs of the Z900, Z650, Z900RS and the Z650RS for 2022. Both the Z900 ($9,499.00) and Z650 ($8,299.00) are offered in an exciting “Firecracker Red”.
The Z900RS ($12,049.00) and the Z650RS ($9,249.00) will be available in a “Fireball” paint scheme, similar to the original 1972 Kawasaki Z1.
The 2022 Kawasaki Z 50th anniversary motorcycles will include a coffee table book commemorating 50 years of the Z line of bikes.
