Having just published our initial review of Kawasaki’s new Z900, the bike’s fresh in our mind, and at $8,399 it undercuts Yamaha’s newly updated FZ-09 by $600. That doesn’t mean to imply the new Kawi will defeat the FZ in a shootout, but the Z900 is an obvious bargain for price-conscious shoppers. The Z doesn’t boast any cutting-edge technology, but you’re not going to find a liter-size four-cylinder with this kind of performance anywhere else for less than $8,400.
