Kawasaki has introduced the 2022 Vulcan S in the Indian market. The changes to the 2022 iteration of the middleweight cruiser motorcycle are limited to cosmetic upgrades. The motorcycle is now available in Metallic Matte Graphenesteel Gray colour. The new paint theme includes a silver and gray colour combination on the fuel tank and on the radiator shrouds.
The Vulcan S already complied with the BS6 emission norms. Thus, the mechanical specifications retain the 649cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled motor that makes 59.94bhp of maximum power at 7,500rpm and 62.4Nm of peak torque at 6,600rpm. The engine is paired to a six-speed gearbox.
The feature list remains unaltered and the 2022 Kawasaki Vulcan S retains a halogen headlight, a semi-digital instrument cluster with gear position indicator, 18-inch front/17-inch rear wheels, a 14-litre fuel tank, an under-engine exhaust canister, and relaxed ergonomics. The hardware on the Vulcan S includes telescopic front forks, a rear mono-shock, single discs on both wheels, and dual-channel ABS.
The Kawasaki Vulcan S rivals the Benelli 502C cruiser in the Indian market. The Chinese-owned Italian brand offers the 502C at a lower price tag than the Kawasaki Vulcan S.
