Kawasaki has introduced expanded its Vulcan S line-up with the introduction of a new orange paint scheme. This variant has been priced at Rs 5.58 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi), making it Rs 10,000 expensive than the black variant.
The company claims that the Vulcan S has received positive response from the Indian buyers. So in order to offer more options, the Japanese manufacturer decided to bring in the orange variant. Positioned as an urban cruiser, the Vulcan S is the first and the only cruiser Kawasaki has in India. The Vulcan S gets the typical cruiser styling, large fuel tank, beefy fenders and wider tyres. The wheels and the frame have been blacked out to give the bike an urban feel and character.
The Vulcan S gets its power from a 650cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine that produces 60bhp at 7500rpm and 63Nm of peak torque at 6600rpm. This motor is mated to a six-speed gearbox that transfers power to the rear wheel via a chain drive. Braking is done via disc brakes on both ends and ABS comes as standard. The fuel tank capacity of the bike stands at 14 litres that should give a riding range of approximately 300 kms. The Vulcan S tips the scale at 226kg.
The Kawasaki Vulcan S sees the Harley-Davidson Iron 883 as the closest rival, but a close look at the BikeWale visitor statistics shows the Street 750 is the most compared bike with the Vulcan S.
