If the name is any indication of the mechanical specs, the Z900RS should share an engine with the Z900 which is a liquid-cooled, DOHC, four-valve-per-cylinder, fuel-injected 948cc inline-four linked to a six-speed transmission. In the Z900, which only weighs 463.1 lbs, this engine makes 125 horsepower and 72.7 lb-ft of torque.
