The added benefit of adjustable Kawasaki components make the Vulcan S the ultimate in versatility for riders of varying sizes and abilities.

The changes are made using Kawasaki Genuine Accessories.
A superb range of Kawasaki Genuine Accessories are available for the Vulcan S; Saddle Bags, Light Bars, Tank Bag, Tail Bag, Rear Rack and kits to set the Vulcan S up for solo or 2-up touring. Many of the Genuine Accessories feature the Kawasaki Quick Release system, making it easy to change your Vulcan S to suit each ride.

Tyres and Brakes
Wheel sizes (18-inch for the front, 17-inch for the rear) are closer to those found on a sport bike than a typical cruiser model (which often have much larger front wheels). The slightly larger front wheel contributes to the Vulcan S’s natural, light handling. The Vulcan S is equipped with front and rear ABS disc brakes. The 300mm front is gripped and 250mm rear brake rotors are gripped by a twin-piston caliper at the front and a single piston caliper for ample stopping power.
