Christmas Gift: Kawasaki Unveils Z 900 RS Motorcycle in Time for Holidays

Kawasaki just unleashed some monster motorcycles for 2018. There's something for everyone, that much is for sure.

Santa Claus probably delivered a lot of the same old, same old.  You know - socks, ties, soap!

So, maybe you should 'Go Green' and treat yourself this holiday season! 

Kawasaki recently  introduced to North America bikes for everyone, from the beginning biker to the high-end rider (Z900 RS, Ninja ZX 10R SE, Ninja H2 SX SE, Ninja 400 ABS KRT).

Earlier this month, these bad boys were unveiled at a swanky, exclusive media event just ahead of Progressive International Motorcycle Show in New York.  The motorcycle I can't stop thinking about was the Z 900 RS. It's a supercharged retro bike! I'm a Harley Girl at heart.  See this picture for proof. Somehow though Kawasaki tugged at my heart strings with the Z 900 RS. 

It's a throwback to Kawasaki's 1973 Z1, one of the most iconic modern motorcycles ever made.

Nostalgia is a theme for Harley Davidson Inc. (HOG) - Get Harley-Davidson, Inc. (HOG) Report , BMW and Indian (owned by Polaris (PII) - Get Polaris Inc. Report ). Are shifting strategies for these motorcycle makers working? Well, Goldman Sachs called for weaker-than-expected fourth quarter sales for Harley, but feels the company could be setting itself up for a strong 2018 showing. Read more here.

I'm happy to take the Kawasaki Z 900 RS for a spring test drive just outside of NYC in Upstate New York. Hint Hint.

Watch the fun/slick video produced by TheStreet's Vanessa Fayzulin. We traveled to AIMExpo in Ohio where there was plenty of Kawasaki eye candy on display for motorcycle enthusiasts.
