The Kawasaki Vulcan 900 has been bestowed the designation of ’classic’ for a reason: it draws on styling cues from days when everybody who was anybody had a muscle car, 8-tracks pumped out the tunes, and a low-slung motorcycle turned heads. Essentially, that’s the Vulcan 900 in the modern setting; it’s an all-business bike that certainly doesn’t play around.
The Vulcan 900 Classic definitely gets noticed, especially when its offered with a classic profile, combined with an improved rear-end styling, a low seat height and a tapered front bucket seat that’s easily suited for riders of all shapes and sizes. The Vulcan 900’s design is the personification of comfort, with the front bucket seat flowing nicely into the largest capacity fuel tank in its class, and the lower chassis rails provide a narrow shape for an abbreviated reach to the pavement. The rear pillion pad makes it painless to share the two-wheeled experience whereas the wide handlebars, seat, and floorboard layout offer an ideal ergonomic relationship.
The Vulcan 900 is also a bike that means serious business. It’s powered by a 903cc four-stroke, liquid-cooled engine that offers excellent performance and smooth roll-on acceleration. Its easy-to-control fuel injection makes for ultra-low-speed riding surprisingly easy and comfortable while the abundant low-rpm torque provides thrilling roll-on acceleration, anywhere and anytime. The Vulcan 900 Classic is also equipped with an auto-fast idle system that uses an rpm feedback relay to help ensure a fixed engine speed in all starting conditions.
When it comes to a no-compromise, in-your-face classic cruiser, the Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic does not apologize for being one of the best in the market. After all, it’s been blazing trails for years and doesn’t figure to slow down anytime soon.
