Kawasaki Is Known For making Blistering Fast Motorcycles that are Ultimately Death Machines if not handled and Controlled Properly, But there is a Soft Side of Kawasaki Motorcycles that make Cruiser Motorcycles. One of the Entry Lineup Cruiser Motorcycles is the Vulcan S. It's A 650cc Motorcycle. The Heart of this machine is a 649cc Engine that Produces 61 Horses and 63 Nm Of Torque. The Performance is Very Good for a cruiser Motorcycle. Also, the Good Amount of torque Present helps In a Good Pickup and also Helps In Highway Overtakes. It's Fuel Injected and Comes with a 6 speed Manual Transmission. Also As per a 650cc Motorcycle, It Gives an Excellent Mileage of 23 Kmpl in City and 26 kmpl on Highway. On the Suspension Side, you Get 41mm Forks up Front. The Rear Monoshock is Adjustable. The Tyre Duty is Being Handled By an 18 inch,120 Section Tyre Up Front and a 17 inch,160 Section Rear Tyre. At 130mm Ground Clearance, it should Handle the potholes well but could be an issue over larger Speed Bumps. The Motorcycle Is heavy, very Heavy 235 Kg of Kerb Weight! It Might be pretty Difficult to lift it if it falls. The Headlight is a LED unit and has a Very Good throw at Night. The Shape of the Headlight is Not Circle, it's Slightly Curved from sides. Some People like it and Some people Don't As Usual. The Tail Light is also an LED unit and Looks Good. You Get Dual Channel ABS as Standard. The Instrument Cluster is an Analog, Digital Unit. The Speedometer is Digital and The Tachometer is Analog. Well, I personally Like the Analog Tachometer Design More than The Digital. The Instrument Cluster provides almost All the Information Needed. Well Talking about the seating Comfort, It's Good but Might Become Uncomfortable for Taller Riders because of the Low Seat height and Centre Set Footpegs. The Pillion Seat Is Nice, large and Comfortable but the Slight Rear Incline Makes you Sometimes Feel that you Might Slip and Fall back, But That's Not the case, the seat holds you in your position and is good. Now coming to the Braking Performance, it's Very Good. Has A good Initial Bite and is Confidence Inspiring. The Fuel Tank has a capacity of 14 Litres but Could Have been Bigger for Longer Rides as it is a Cruiser and People would like to go the Long distance on it. Now Talking About the Competition It's Arch Rival is the Harley Davidson Street 750 which has less Power, less Torque and Not a Good Overall Package. The Vulcan S is a Little Bit Higher in price but is Worth that Money. The Vulcan S is the better overall and Value For Money Package. But Sadly, The Brand Name of Harley Davidson has made the Street 750 cross the sales Number of Vulcan s. If People Stop Praising Brand Value Too Much than Each and Everyone could Have a Better Motorcycle and more VFM Products. It's Not that The Street 750 is Not good, It's also a Wonderful Motorcycle but my Question is that why to buy the Street 750 if we can Get a Better Motorcycle at just a Little More Price. Also, The Street 750 heats a Lot and Creates a problem for the Rider. Thus the Vulcan s Gets a Big Thumbs Up from my side and is a Good Buy if you are Looking For A Middleweight Cruiser Motorcycle in the Market.
