A new liquid-cooled in-line four-cylinder heart will power Kawasaki’s new retro fighter. The mill will reportedly have retro-styled cooling fins designed into it as well, harking back to the legendary Kawasaki Z1 here in fact.

Initially, many thought that Kawasaki would unleash a new supercharged retro bike first. However, recent developments say that the naturally aspirated bike will debut first instead. The new Kawasaki Z900RS will make an appearance during EICMA later this year.

Reports further suggest that the Z900RS will be accompanied in EICMA with a 675cc three-cylinder supercharged retro – likely dubbed as the H1 – that adopts a smaller version of the same powerplant that’s expected to hit markets in 2018.
