New Kawasaki Vulcan S Tourer

Metallic Flat Raw Greystone RRP £8049Stock: 2 Available

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and designed for independent minded riders, Vulcan S does not require the rider to conform to some “herd-mentality”, outdated fashion or lifestyle.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, the accommodating new Vulcan S encourages you to go Your Way! 

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 on a motorcycle. At 705 mm, the Vulcan S’s low seat is very accommodating.

Large disc brakes

Large-diameter disc brakes balance ample stopping power with easy control for beginning riders.

Adjustable footpegs

3-position footpegs allow riders to adjust foot position to suit size and preference. Three positions available: STD, 25 mm forward, 25 mm back.

Long range

With its 14 litre fuel tank capacity and the Parallel Twin engine’s good fuel economy, the long range offered by the Vulcan S means riders can go longer between fill-ups—convenient in town, and reassuring when out on a daytrip.

Easy-to-read instrumentation

Original-design instrumentation cluster features an analogue-style tachometer and multi-purpose LCD.
Convenient features keep riders fully informed of operating conditions.

Easy-to-control 649 cm3 liquid-cooled, 4-stroke Parallel Twin

Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve 649 cm3 Parallel Twin with fuel injection 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. The Vulcan S offers smooth starts from a standstill, smooth acceleration, and a satisfying pull when accelerating. The strong acceleration facilitates highway merging and passing.

Slim backbone-style rear frame

The design of the frame, rear suspension and swingarm create an integrated line running from the front of the bike to the rear hub.
A pipe frame of high-tensile steel gives the bike a lightweight appearance. 3D analysis was used to achieve the target rigidity and stress values.
