Kawasaki kicked off the competition in the middle weight segment of motorcycles when it launched the Ninja 650R few years ago. After offering two different motorcycles in the same space, Ninja 650R and ER-6N, Kawasaki is bringing its third motorcycle in the 650cc motorcycle segment, the Vulcan S, to India.
The Vulcan S is a cruiser motorcycle which is based on the same platform on which the Ninja 650R as well as ER-6N are built. A typical Japanese cruiser, the ER-6N boasts of both modern and retro elements which make it a distinctive motorcycle. The powertrain as well as chassis have been shared with the Ninja 650R, which already has gained a cult status among the motorcycling enthusiasts in the country.
The Vulcan S is supposed to be the first cruiser from the stable of Kawasaki for the Indian market, and will give a tough fight to the entry level roadster/cruiser models of Harley Davidson and Triumph. Let’s have a quick look on the credentials and aspects of the Kawasaki Vulcan S.
