Canadian Kawasaki Motors is excited to announce new and returning street motorcycles for 2022.

New models for 2022 include the Z650RS, a retro-themed twist on the popular Z650, and the spectacular Z900RS SE featuring upgraded suspension, gold wheels, and striking Yellow Ball paint scheme. They will be joined by the Z900 SE featuring upgraded suspension, and a lowered version of the KLX230 dual sport, the KLX230 S.

They join a full fleet of returning models from the Ninja, Vulcan, Versys, Concours, Z, and W ranges, plus the previously announced KLX and KLR units. Today also marks the opening of the Ninja H2 ordering period, meaning customers can now secure their Ninja H2, Ninja H2 Carbon or Ninja H2R.

– Z900RS-inspired retro design
– Relaxed ergonomics
– Cast spoke wheels

The newest 650 twin in the Kawasaki line-up is the Z650RS, a retro sport model that combines timeless good looks inherited from the Z900RS with a compact, easy-handling package that riders will love to enjoy daily.

Based on our popular Z650, the all-new Z650RS adds some retro flair and charm to the middleweight segment. It runs on a trusted 649cc parallel-twin, paired with a 6-speed transmission and an Assist & Slipper clutch. The 17-in cast wheels are shod in a set of in Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tires.

The model was designed to be accessible with an 800 mm seat height, lightweight (187 kg) and easy to manoeuvre chassis, giving rookie and seasoned riders alike a new and delightfully retro option to consider.
