What Is It?

The Kawasaki Vulcan S is an A2 friendly cruiser style bike which has a great following and is easy to customise. It's powered by a liquid cooled 649 cc parallel twin engine, producing 60.3 bhp at 7,500 rpm and maximum torque at 6,600 rpm.

Features include:

  • Steel tubular frame and swingarm
  • 300 mm disc up front with Nissin two piston caliper

  • Rear shock with 7-level adjustable pre-load and 80 mm travel
  • Adjustable levers and pegs

Kawasaki have included a few neat touches with the design of the Vulcan S, such as the low slung exhaust under the engine to improve the centre of gravity, a really plush seat and +/- 25 mm adjustable footpegs. The 5-spoke 18" front wheel takes a Dunlop Sportmax 120/70 tyre and the 17" rear a 160/60.
