Contact us direct HERE for more information.

 

Kawasaki have now been out of stock of the Vulcan S for some time so it gives me great pleasure to announce
The 2020 colour variants of the "Standard" bike. (Please be aware that the "Café" version is not in the
2020 model line-up)
Available as a standard bike in Metallic FLAT Spark Black plus two special versions
both with Metallic Spark black as a base but one with Gold detailing and one very
cool looking version with green highlights and Hydro dipped detailing.

 

Firstly I am very pleased to announce that the price remains the same as 2019 Vulcan S at £6449 for the standard and £6649 for the Special colour versions.

Limited numbers of Base model and Gold detail are starting to land with immediate availability. The Hydro Dipped version is due to be available from mid-September.

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not require the rider to conform to some “herd-mentality”, outdated fashion or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!

Light handling

Light handling

Low overall weight, fine-tuned chassis rigidity balance, 18”/17” radial tyres and suspension settings result in a bike with light, easy handling and easy manoeuvrability.

Comfortable seat

Comfortable seat

Sculpted seat design with thick padding offers excellent comfort and good hip support.

Long range

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

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.

Modern, urban styling

Modern, urban styling

Flowing style with long-and-low stance and modern elements like the original headlamp and cast wheels with five spoke pair design give the Vulcan S very nontraditional cruiser looks.

Adjustable footpegs

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.

Adjustable clutch/brake levers

Adjustable clutch/brake levers

Multi-position levers allow riders to adjust lever position to suit hand size and preference.

Linkage-equipped offset laydown single-shock

Linkage-equipped offset laydown single-shock

Offset laydown single-shock rear suspension is equipped with linkage to enable a longer stroke for increased ride comfort.
The rear suspension arrangement also contributes to the bike’s compact design, freeing up space for a large-volume silencer under the engine.
Rear shock features adjustable preload, with 7 positions to suit rider size and payload.

Easy-to-read instrumentation

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. Including a gear indicator.

Relaxed, foot-forward riding position

Relaxed, foot-forward riding position

The compact engine and slim frame result in a design that is narrow at the knees and feet. Forward positioned footpegs are ideal for relaxed, cruiser style riding.

Low seat height

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.

Under-engine muffler

Under-engine muffler

Muffler located under the engine contributes to a low centre of gravity, and is tucked out of the way, making it easier to reach the ground when stopped. The muffler’s design conveys both power and style.

Large disc brakes

Large disc brakes

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

Long wheelbase

Long wheelbase

Wheelbase of 1,575 mm was chosen for a balance of light handling and superior riding stability.
The same characteristics that make it fun to ride (light handling and relaxed, rider-friendly ergonomics), also make the Vulcan S ideal for new riders.

Slim backbone-style rear frame

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.
