There could be another version of the RS range from Kawasaki, as reported by Young Machine.
We usually ignore baseless rumours, but considering the allegation comes from the most reliable Japanese publication, we know there is more to it than rumours.
Team Green recently expanded the RS range with a new Z650RS – prompted by the well-received Z900RS – powered by the same parallel-twin engine found in the Z650 and Ninja 650.
While it is unclear the type of engine to be used on the Z400RS, the Japanese firm is said to introduce an overhauled 400cc engine taken from the Ninja 400.
Nonetheless, it is an exciting time for Kawasaki as the company recently announced plans on dedicating significant resources to developing an all-new hybrid engine to phase out all fossil-fuel vehicles by 2035.
