India Kawasaki Motor has silently launched the Z900RS naked motorcycle at ₹ 15.30 lakh (ex-showroom). The motorcycle based on the Z900 but it’s been redesigned to the extent you wouldn’t recognise it, with styling inspired by the Z1 of the 1970s. The motorcycle is a full import from Japan through the completely built unit (CBU) route, a  reason for the high price tag.
