Some twins look alike and have a special bond that is clear for all to see, yet, you get twins that don't even look related and if it wasn't for the fact they share birthdays and parents you would assume they were just good friends who share a surname. So there you have it the Interceptor 650 although is a powerful motorcycle compared to their other RE Cruisers but anyone riding it can use all that power making it a fun to ride and daily useable motorcycle. Neither Vulcan S owners I spoke to have experienced this issue, so I think it's safe to say it's been sorted out by Kawasaki on the bikes now.
In India, the Kawasaki Vulcan S will compete against the likes of Harley-Davidson Street 750 and the upcoming Royal Enfield Interceptor 650. The Kawasaki Vulcan S is one of the best cruisers in the middleweight segment. So it's pretty much going to fit any sized rider and despite my initial impressions, it doesn't look or feel like a small bike once it's on the road.
This Triumph is the ying to the Vulcan's yang when it comes to styling and so will appeal to riders that like the original Bonneville's 1959 styling Triumph was known for mixed with new technology like fuel injection, ABS, traction control, Torque assist clutch and optional cruise control.
It combines the low silhouette of a Vulcan cruiser and mixes it with Kawasaki sportbike-derived power and Review handling, as well as a custom fit concept, designed to comfortably fit a wide range of riders. Developed with the feedback of racers and road riders alike.
There is a strange storage compartment located in front of the rider in what should be the fuel tank, accessed by opening two separate covers. The new Vulcan S has a modern cruiser styling and is based on the Kawasaki Ninja 650 sports is powered by a liquid-cooled 649cc parallel twin derived from the Ninja 650, but with revised cam profiles, modified intake tract, exhaust and ECU.
The cruiser sits on the perimeter frame, which is more than capable of offering appreciable comfort to the rider and the pillion. An off-set single-shock rear suspension has an adjustable preload, with 7 positions to suit rider size and payload, also important given the apparently roomy pillion seat.
