The Vulcan S utilizes a subsidiary of the Ninja 650 twin-cylinder engine, re-tuned for all the more low- and mid-range torque, and matched with a six-pace transmission to make it less demanding to navigate urban areas. While the Vulcan S unquestionably has a far distinctive style, you can see the Ninja 650 sections in the casing and the offset, lay-down rear shock.

The thin chassis makes for a narrow feeling cruiser that should feel lighter than its 498-pound control weight would demonstrate. The seat is both low (27.8 inches) and decreased at the front, to fabricate putting a leg down incredibly easy. On the off chance that that doesn't make it inviting enough, Kawasaki Ergo-Fit parts are accessible to stretch or abbreviate the reach to the bars or further raise or bring down the seat. The brake lever and clutch are both flexible to fit a mixture of riders, and Kawasaki has even moved the exhaust pipes under the bike, to keep them out of the way of your feet.

The cruiser market is developing, says Kawasaki, and the obliging new Vulcan S has all the earmarks of hitting the business at simply the correct time.
