Tyres and Brakes
The 18-inch front and 17-inch rear wheel sizes are closer to those found on a sport bike than a typical cruiser. The slightly larger front wheel contributes to natural, light handling. 300mm front and 250mm rear ABS disc brakes are gripped by a twin-piston caliper at the front and a single piston caliper for ample stopping power.
Curved, flowing style blended with a powerful, long-and-low stance and modern elements creates a unique, eye-catching design. Inverted triangle headlamp contributes to the Vulcan S’s fresh, unique design. A position lamp is built into the upper portion of the headlamp unit.
Analogue-style tachometer and multi-function LCD screen use blue LED backlights for excellent visibility at night. Include a fuel gauge, digital speedometer, clock, odometer, dual trip meters, remaining range, average/instant fuel consumption and the Economical Riding Indicator.
Low Comfortable Seat
The low (705mm height), comfortable seat features thick 62mm padding with a wide surface and excellent hip support, ensuring ample comfort for city riding and short tours. The seat bracket is rubber-mounted, reducing vibration transferred through the seat.
Teardrop-style fuel tank adds a cruiser-style touch. With its 14 litre 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.
Offset Rear Shock
Offset laydown rear single-shock suspension is distinctive styling element, contributing the trend setting design. Pre-load adjustment is via an easy access 5-way cam wheel.
Liquid Cooled Parallel Twin
The liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve 649 cm³, fuel-injected Parallel Twin engine delivers smooth performance in the low and medium rpm ranges. Tuned for rider-friendly power characteristics that will inspire confidence in all riders.
Tail fender shaped to hug the rear wheel as closely as possible, creating a compact cruiser-style design. The design was made possible in part by the offset laydown rear shock.
