28 February 2018 Z900RS Akashi Custom Paint

The favourite custom paint design as voted for by the public was unveiled at the MCN London Show this weekend. The chosen design is the Z900RS Akashi, inspired by the original Z1 colours of the early 1970’s and the Akashi Works in Japan which has developed Kawasaki motorcycles for over 50 years.
Heritage is a central theme in the RS Akashi design, the name itself references Akashi city in the Hyogo Prefecture where Akashi Works, one of Kawasaki’s mother factories, is located. Established in 1940, Akashi holds the heritage of over 50 years of motorcycle development and 150 years of diverse manufacturing. Initially manufacturing aeroengines, the plant began producing Kawasaki motorcycles in 1960.
