The 2015 Kawasaki Vulcan S ABS

With the introduction of the Kawasaki Vulcan S, Kawasaki's Vulcan cruiser lineup had a more classic look for the most part, and in turn, were the only traditional models to do so. With the introduction of the Kawasaki Vulcan S, the cruiser family is beginning to delve into sport territory with the Kawasaki Vulcan S leading the charge.

But the Kawasaki Vulcan S is not all about sportiness; the major highlights for the Kawasaki Vulcan S are in the area of ergonomics, with Kawasaki placing extra emphasis on a tailored fit. The manufacturer boasts that it's the only motorcycle in its class to come with adjustable, forward-position footpegs as standard, which accommodates a broader scope of riders through three changeable positions, known as “forward”, “backward” and “normal”. This feature is categorized as Ergo-Fit, a line that includes a whole slew of optional Ergo-Fit add-ons.
Let's get back to sportiness, though, since that's what the “S” in the Kawasaki Vulcan S stands for, isn't it? The inverted triangular headlight and teardrop 14-liters fuel tank exemplify the sporty look along with the motorcycle's newly designed perimeter frame that incorporates a new rear subframe with a slim backbone. But, of course, its slimness also has another purpose: it helps the rider reach the ground. The sportiness, as expected, runs not just on out the outside but deep in the motorcycle's DNA. The Kawasaki Vulcan S' 649cc parallel-twin powerplant is derived from the high-performing Kawasaki Ninja 650.

When compared to the Kawasaki Ninja 650, the flywheel mass on the Kawasaki Vulcan S has been increased, and its 38mm Keihin throttle bodies are larger than its cruiser counterparts. The Ninja 650's 180-degree crankshaft-driven balancer shaft also calms the powertrain.
