TWIN CYLINDER ENGINE

Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve 649cc Parallel Twin with fuel injection delivers smooth, responsive performance, especially in the low and medium rpm ranges. The engine was tuned for rider-friendly power characteristics that will inspire confidence in new rider. The Vulcan S offers smooth starts from a standstill, smooth acceleration, and a satisfying pull when accelerating.

ABS BRAKING

The compact ABS system provides ample stopping power, while offering easy control for new riders. A large ø300mm front disc is slowed by a two-piston caliper. At the rear, a ø250mm disc is gripped by a single-piston caliper. The compact ABS unit contributes to the lightweight chassis, and is conveniently tucked away under the rear shock, which ensures a slim construction beneath the seat.

CUSTOM FIT ADJUSTABILITY

The footpeg position is adjustable with three positions available: STD, 25mm forward and 25mm back. (Alternative shift linkage rods, sold separately, are necessary when changing the position from standard). Brake and clutch levers can be adjusted to suit the riders hand size and preference. Other accessories are available to further adjust the bike to a custom fit.

SUSPENSION

Telescopic front fork contributes to the bike’s easy-to-control, light and natural handling. Offset laydown single-shock rear suspension is equipped with a linkage to enable a longer stroke for increased ride comfort.

CUSTOM UNDER ENGINE MUFFLER

Attractive bend of the exhaust pipes and an under-engine muffler arrangement contribute to the Vulcan S’s attractive styling. Dual-wall exhaust pipe design gives the header pipes a fatter appearance for a strong image.

LOW CENTRE OF GRAVITY

The Vulcan S’s low weight and low centre of gravity make it highly manoeuvrable, whether riding, paddling in a parking lot, or walking beside the bike.
