About Vulcan S

The Vulcan S is Kawasaki’s middleweight cruiser offering in the Indian market and a direct rival to the Harley-Davidson Street 750 and the Hyosung Aquila Pro GV650.

The Vulcan S is Kawasaki’s middleweight cruiser offering in the Indian market and a direct rival to the Harley-Davidson Street 750 and the Hyosung Aquila Pro GV650.

The bike sports the design language of a modern cruiser and gets a muscular styling, low-slung profile and a laidback riding position, blacked out components and the short exhaust. However, the bike also gets elements like the teardrop shaped fuel-tank and inverted triangle headlamp to set it apart. The instrument cluster is similar to the previous generation Ninja 650 and ER-6n, and comprises of an analogue tachometer and a digital display.

The Kawasaki Vulcan S is powered by a retuned version of the Ninja 650's liquid-cooled, 650cc parallel-twin engine that produces 60bhp and 63Nm of torque. This motor is mated to a six-speed gearbox that transfers power to the rear wheel via a chain drive. It rides on an 18-inch front alloy wheel with telescopic forks and a 17-inch rear alloy wheel with an offset monoshock. Braking power comes from a single 300mm disc up front and a 250mm disc at the rear with ABS offered as standard.

The Vulcan S tips the scale at 226kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 14 litres. Kawasaki offers the bike with ‘Ergo-Fit’; a three-level adjustment for the seat, handlebar and foot pegs, making it suitable for riders of different heights.

The bike was only available in a black colour option at launch, but since then an orange version has been added as well. It is priced at Rs 5.44 lakhs (ex-showroom) and the orange variant costs Rs 10,000 more.
