Kawasaki Vulcan S Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • Offers a comfortable riding position
    • Has a refined 649cc engine
    • Gets good built quality
  • Could be Better

    • The rear suspension is stiff
    • Could get a better instrument cluster
    • Weight is on the heavier side

BikeWale's Take

The Vulcan S is Kawasaki’s only cruiser offering in the Indian market. It offers a comfortable riding position thanks to the forward set footrests and slightly sweptback handlebars. Moreover, it also gets a refined 649cc engine and good built quality to match. On the other hand, it could do better with an updated instrument cluster and pliant rear suspension.
