The Kawasaki Vulcan S is a middleweight cruiser that ticks all the right boxes. A rival to the Harley-Davidson Street 750 and the Hyosung Aquila Pro GV650, it is comfortable and easy to ride, gets a long list of features and is priced aggressively too. Here is a photo gallery of the Kawasaki Vulcan S from our first ride review -
The Kawasaki Vulcan S gets characteristic urban cruiser styling cues like a low-slung profile, stretched wheelbase and laid-back riding position.
Components like engine, exhaust, wheels, frame, headlamp and the handlebar have been blacked out which give the Vulcan S a sinister look.
The unique styling cues like the teardrop fuel-tank, inverted triangular headlamp and the offset monoshock make it stand out in a crowd.
The Vulcan S is offered with Ergo-Fit, with three-level adjustment for the seat, handlebar and foot pegs, to make it suitable for riders of different heights.
The analogue tachometer is paired with a digital display which integrates a trip computer, gear position indicator and shift light apart from the usual functionalities.
The Vulcan S is powered by the tried-and-tested 649cc parallel twin engine, which is retuned to offer better low-end and mid-range performance.
The engine churns out 60bhp and 63Nm of torque, which is delivered through a six-speed cassette-type gearbox.
The Vulcan S rides on an 18-inch front and a 17-inch rear alloy wheel. The suspension setup consists of telescopic front forks and a rear monoshock.
The brake setup consists of a single 300mm disc up front and a 250mm disc at the rear. ABS is offered as standard.
