Kawasaki GPZ900R Might Return. Rumours From Japan

Kawasaki is teasing us with a video showing the evolution of the GPZ900R

Top Gun movie appearances and a history of 20 years. Can all this mean that the GPZ900R is about to make a return on the bike market? This is what we know so far.

Kawasaki launched a video on social media showing the evolution of the GPZ900R. The bike was on the market for 20 years and was the first liquid-cooled DOHC inline-four sport bike from the brand. It was also the first motorcycle to use the name "Ninja". Adding a quick appearance in the trailer of the Top Gun: Maverick movie it might all mean that the Kawasaki GPZ900R is coming back.

We know that retro bikes never get old and the Green Machine has in its model range the Z900RS. Thus, the new GPZ900R can be based on the inline-four Z900 platform. 

The interest for retro bikes is growing and already Suzuki made a throwback to the ‘80s with the Katana Model. Taking in to count that this year is the 35th anniversary from the launch of the first Kawasaki GPZ900R bike, we can all expect to see a return of the iconic bike from the 1986 Top Gun movie.

  1. Would be beautiful if they brought out a new gpz900r I would buy one straight away as I still own the original 1984 GPZ900R today & still very fast..

  2. bought a brand new A1 in ’84 and I still drive another A1 I just bought used with 12000km , but fitted it with a Yoshimura 4 into 1 pipe 🙂
    if Kawasaki keeps the awesome styling and reasonable comfort , but shave off at least hundred lbs and update to EFI , then count me in.

  3. Wow the video blew me away! Back in 1984 I grabbed one of the first Ninja 900s in the country. Eventually it amassed 185,000 kms and still ran and looked like new.

    A real 900 Ninja with fangs would turn the world upside-down. The tuneabilty of the chassis was a huge bonus, it would race or tour with ease. Sometimes at the same time! Typical Ninja stuff.
