Some twins look alike and have a special bond that is clear for all to see, yet, you get twins that don't even look related and if it wasn't for the fact they share birthdays and parents you would assume they were just good friends who share a surname. At that price point, the Vulcan S locks horns with the hugely successful Harley-Davidson Street 750 and the Harley-Davidson Street Rod What the Vulcan S offers is a slightly modern approach to cruiser styling and a proven to be refined and competent 650 cc parallel-twin engine.
The adjustable clutch and brake levers add up to the convenience front allowing the rider to experience a ride of the lifetime whenever he twists the throttle on this Kawasaki cruiser. Its 649cc liquid-cooled parallel twin is derived from off Kawasaki's Ninja 650 engine.
There's a sportbike tightly concealed under the cruiser's skin, and playing near maximum power levels - above 7,000 exhaust rpm - will drag those mpg readouts quite lower. Wheel sizes (18-inch for the front, 17-inch for the rear) are closer to those found on a sport bike than a typical cruiser model (which often have much larger front wheels).
Protecting your expensive headlights from debris kicked up from the road, our headlight shields are easy to fit, with no modification needed to your bike and they are easily removed for cleaning. It can be easily adjusted to suit the rider or when carrying a passenger and luggage, such as when the Kawasaki Genuine Accessories passenger components and luggage rack are fitted.
The braking set up consists of disc brakes at both, front as well as rear, which provide great confidence to the rider while gliding it down the straights and city streets. A colourless fully synthetic lubricant with strong adhesive properties designed for high speed, high stress applications such as motorcycle chains.
Never taking away from its stylish features, this bike takes comfort, adjustability, and Ninja®-derived power and performance to the next level. With its 14 litre tank capacity and the Parallel Twin engine's good fuel economy, the long range offered by the Vulcan S means riders can go longer between fill-ups—convenient in town, and reassuring when out on a daytrip.
