2018 Kawasaki Z900RS ‘Goose’ By Deus Ex Machina

If you were an officer in the Main Force Patrol, wouldn’t you don’t have a little extra steez on your whip? Jim Goose knew how to throw added shimmer on his pursuit weapon of choice, and Deus Ex Machina pays homage to the Mad Max comrade with their 2018 Kawasaki Z900RS build, known simply as ‘Goose.’

With the aim of the build to emulate the classic look of the ‘77 KZ1000 used in filming the original George Miller flick, the Deus crew started by adapting a fiberglass fairing from Airtech to match the lines of the brand new standard stallion. The fairing then was hacked by the Australian artisans to accept the supplemental perforated steel panels that extend the edges of the body panels while keeping the bike looking light. Similar treatment was given to the rear cowling, which complements the brown leather seat perfectly. The factory pipes got chopped and and capped before being given a ceramic coating, for an ultra clean, stubby look. Final touches was a shot of midnight metallic green for the body and the Kawasaki Motorcycle Australia monogram on the tail, ensuring Toecutter knows exactly who’s locked onto his niner.
