Kawasaki India has updated its product portfolio with the launch of the BS6-compliant Vulcan S. The latest iteration of the middleweight cruiser gets a BS6-compliant motor and a new paint option. The design, on the other hand, remains similar to the BS4 model. Here we list the top five highlights of the Kawasaki Vulcan S BS6.
The design of the 2021 Vulcan S remains similar to the BS4 model. Thus, the cruiser motorcycle continues to feature a muscular styling, teardrop-shaped fuel tank, inverted triangle headlamp, split-style seat, low-slung profile, laidback riding position, blacked-out components and the short exhaust. The handlebar, seat and footpegs are adjustable. The motorcycle, unlike the Ninja 650 and the Z650, does not get the 4.3-inch full-colour TFT screen.
