Kawasaki Vulcan S (2015 onwards)
The Vulcan S is one of flagships in the cruiser category of Kawasaki bikes. It is a middleweight motorcycle equipped with a 650c parallel twin engine that makes the bike feel more like a standard naked rather than a classic cruiser.
The motorcycle offers a lower seating position, which makes it suitable for beginners and short riders. The handling is very good and the engine is extremely responsive, especially for a cruiser. Despite its 228 kilograms, the Vulcan S feels lightweight and you will be able to push the bike without any hassle.
In terms of equipment, the Kawasaki Vulcan S is pretty straightforward. The bike features a simple dashboard that might feel dated by today’s standards, but it is tolerable for this type of motorcycle. Other than that, there is also a basic ABS system and adjustable levers.
