Kawasaki Vulcan S Motorcycle | Its first cruiser in India gets a new paint option
Kawasaki Vulcan S Motorcycle: If you enjoyed the Kawasaki Vulcan S but did not enjoy the fact that it might only be had in a matte-black complete, here is some great news: Kawasaki has introduced a ‘bead lava crimson’ paint scheme on its own very first cruiser offering for India.
The business features the introduction of the new color to the “positive response obtained from the clients to the current version”.
It sports a tall handlebar, a digi-analog instrument, five-spoke metal wheels, a lavish split-seat set-up and includes a 120/70 R18 tyre front plus a 160/60 R17 tyre in the back.
Powering this bicycle is a 649cc, fuel-injected, parallel-twin motor, mated into some six-speed transmission. The motor generates 61hp in 7,500rpm and 63Nm of torque at 6,600rpm. Additionally, it has a 41mm telescopic fork along with an offset monoshock that is adjustable for preload.
Braking duties are cared for with a dual-piston 300mm disc brake front along with also a single-piston, 250mm disc in the back.
The Kawasaki Vulcan S in pearl lava orange is priced at Rs 5.58 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), making it just Rs 10,000 more costly than the initial matte-black version.
The Vulcan stocks its 649cc, eight-valve, liquid-cooled parallel-twin together with all the previous-gen ER-6n, but using different camera profiles, a revised intake tract, exhaust, and ECU, along with a heavier flywheel. The motor packs a punch, but electricity delivery is completely linear, with rather a keen bottom end from as low as 2,000rpm. Cleverly chosen gearing allows for great tractability — you are able to creep over rate breakers in 2nd gear, and fourth is very good for anything over 45kph. The six-speed gearbox itself includes a thick texture but slots with adequate precision and even enables the occasional clutchless upshift.
