When talking about custom motorcycles, the Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom is right there on top of every rider’s list.
Combining back-in-the-day styling and up-to-date imagery, the Vulcan 900 Custom draws from both current and classic styling influences that lends itself to one unique and mouth-watering package. An aggressive flat handlebar and forward footpegs place the rider in a stylish profile that enhances the overall visual appeal.There’s also a sleek and subtle fuel tank that features flowing lines that easily lead the eye along the careful and delicate curves, blending together to give the bike a highly-customized form. A matte black frame provides an understated framework for the Kawasaki artistry that is both appealing and gutsy, as are the massive rear tire, light-looking front end accentuated by a thin 21-inch cast wheel, and overall sculpted bodywork. The aforementioned front wheel features spokes arranged in pairs for a special visual appeal while the wide rear 15" cast wheel gives the rider the feeling of sitting on a one-of-a-kind, made-to-order motorcycle.
Powering the bike is a 903cc four-stroke, liquid-cooled, SOHC four-cylinder V-twin engine that produces as much as 58 lb/ft of torque at 3,500 rpm.
As far as custom bikes go, the Vulcan 900 Custom’s design versatility and premium performance capability makes it one custom bike that both owners and aftermarket tuning companies have all fallen head over heels for.
