The Kawasaki Vulcan S was designed to transport riders into the sporty world with plenty of style. By blending a more sporty ride with retro style and a powerful 649 cc engine, it offers an experience never seen before.

Whether going to work or enjoying a ride, the Vulcan S is your reliable partner for any occasion.


The chassis is a tubular steel type Diamond and has great rigidity; its geometry, even with a more open caster angle, doesn’t hinder low-speed maneuvers in tight traffic. It’s very easy to drive in traffic, the low seat height also helps with maneuvers and placing your feet on the ground, agility is one of its strong points, even weighing 228 kg in running order.
The handlebars and pedals are quite wide and may limit passage in the corridor, but slightly. It’s also good on high-curve roads, where it shows its potential to corner them with superior stability, compared to other bikes in the same segment.
