There are plenty of retro motorcycles on the market now – they often borrow styling from older models, but do they capture the essence of what made the originals special? Nathan and I took a new Kawasaki Z900RS up to Hollister, California to visit Bike-urious reader Don Potter. He owns Z1 #265, and I thought it’d be great to get his thoughts on the Z900RS stacks up.

Check out the video here:

They both look great together! For more of my thoughts on the Z900RS, you can check out my First Ride review from the US launch here.

UPDATE: Apparently Don really liked the Z900RS, as he ended up buying one himself and tweaking it a bit (note the Ohlins fork, aftermarket shock, Akrapovic exhaust, and Brembo brakes):
