Unique and different

Stands out in its segment

The Kawasaki Vulcan S stands out from the crowd with its Parallel Twin engine based on the superb Kawasaki Ninja 650 and Versys 650. Its very modern and urban looks will ensure that it is always noticed wherever you decide to take it.Compared to most other smaller-displacement cruisers, the Kawasaki Vulcan S has a significant weight advantage thanks to its compact engine and chassis design. Weighing in at just 228 kg wet, the bike’s lightweight is apparent as soon as you lift it off of the side stand.


Your Way

Dare to be different

Vulcan S, not your average cruiser. Standing apart, with its Parallel Twin engine, unique frame and suspension layout and designed for independent minded riders, Vulcan S does not require the rider to conform to some “herd-mentality”, outdated fashion or lifestyle. Accessible in all senses of the word, accommodating new Vulcan S encourages you to go Your Way! Configure your Vulcan S with Ergo-Fit solutions!


Classic Cruiser Lines

Low and long stance

Together with the compact engine and backbone-style rear frame, the frame’s design creates a package that is slim, low, lightweight and compact. Low overall weight, 18″ front and 17″rear tyres coupled with quality suspension results in a bike with light, easy handling and easy manoeuvrability which all adds to the fun of riding it. A key feature of the new Kawasaki Vulcan S is the low seat height. Being able to easily put your feet on the ground when stopped is one of the most important factors in feeling comfortable and confident on a motorcycle. At only 705 mm, the Vulcan S can be an option for everybody.


The Parallel Punch

Grunty, smooth and usable

A liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve 649cc Parallel Twin with fuel injection is at the heart of this urban cruiser and delivers smooth, responsive performance especially in the low and medium rpm ranges. The engine was tuned for rider-friendly power characteristics that will inspire confidence in new riders as well as the more experienced. The Vulcan S offers smooth effortless starts from a standstill and smooth acceleration.
