Kawasaki Vulcan S Bike Latest Updates

Kawasaki has launched the 2022 Vulcan S in India at Rs 6.10 lakh (ex-showroom). The mid-displacement cruiser gets a new grey colour for a premium of Rs 6,000 over the outgoing model. Apart from this, the cruiser remains unchanged.

It's powered by a BS6-compliant 650cc liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine (mated to a 6-speed transmission), making 61PS at 7500rpm and 62.4Nm at 6600rpm. The Vulcan S features a diamond-type frame, a conventional telescopic fork, and a 7-way adjustable monoshock. The bike is anchored by a single 300mm disc up front and a disc at the rear with Nissin calipers. It weighs in at 235kg (kerb weight), with a fuel tank capacity of 14 litres.

Kawasaki has provided the Vulcan S with ‘Ergo-Fit’ ergonomics adjustability. While the India-spec model already has a 3-step adjustable footpeg, the new sizing system allows you to adjust the bike’s seat, footpegs, and handlebar. You can choose from 18 possible combinations, ranging from reduced to extended reach.

    Exhaust sound

    After a 2000 km ride and much more experience with Vulcan S bike. I am surprised by its performance. It is quick and fast for a cruiser. It is a sportbike with a cruiser body. Because it is an expensive bike. I just wish it has more features like riding modes etc. Builds quality is awesome. I can't feel the vibration at all. It's heavy, but again because of the low seat height. You cannot feel the weight. The con side of the bike is that I hate the exhaust sound, and there are very limited accessories in India. The maintenance is high.

    Personal experience

    Probably one of the best cruiser a cruiser is not supposed to have such good speed pickup but vulcan nails it. It can reach upto 180kmh my personal experience and comfort is 100/100 on my part specially when you get an extra back rest for the back passenger it sounds decent too and When it comes to looks it is like a gentleman in a tuxedo in a highend party😅

    It is one of the best bikes

    It is one of the best bikes in 650 cc cruiser segment.It has the feel of a cruiser yet a heart of a sports bike.For long trips or short fast rides, It suites and completes all your needs.Probably it has been underrated for 4 years now but once you have your eye on this, You can’t miss it and once you have your hand on it, You have to take it.

More Questions
Q. I am planning to buy my first bike. My shortlisted choices are very small Vulcan S650 and Versys 650. Considering Indian road conditions, which bike would you recommend me? My budget is around 6.5 lakhs INR. Any other options are also welcome.
  • These are entirely different types of bikes - Cruiser and Semi ADV. Secondly Versys is more expensive and it isn’t available for Rs 6.5 Lac (assuming you are not buying a used one). I paid Rs 7.08 Lac for Vulcan itself (Bengaluru). Both are big bikes. Versys is a little more gigantic/bulky than Vulcan making it difficult to be a daily commuter. Vulcan May be slightly better on this aspect, but it has a pathetic 130 mm ground clearance which makes it somewhat difficult to ride over speed bumps and potholes in Cities. But Versys is a better All-rounder compared to Vulcan since it has some off-roading capability.If you are ok with the might/bulk of Versys and its higher Price, Versys May be a better choice.( I wanted Cruiser, so I chose Vulcan ).However, if your rides are a good combination of daily commute and touring, Z650 and Ninja650 are better options compared to Versys and Vulcan.
  • Yes.. You can either install an Aftermarket exhaust or get ‘fork raisers’ installed.. Since I live in Bengaluru where cops seem to be very strict about aftermarket exhausts ( and also due to these exhausts being very expensive ), I got ‘fork raisers’ installed which raise the frame by a couple of inches thereby increasing the ground clearance by about an inch..Note that these fork raisers are not some standard accessories you can buy.. These were fabricated and installed at a workshop owned by a member of one of the riding clubs, so you need to check if such fabrication and installation can be done by someone in your city..
  • Hi,I would suggest you to decide priority and need first .Every segmented bike have different purpose .Versys meant to be for off touring purpose including some off road capabilities.Vulcun is good for city ride and for daily commuting but sometimes it will create problem as ground clearance is not so good.Ninja 650 is a good sports tourer with comfortably adjusted upright clip on handlebar also you can enjoy weekend rides in city as well as on highway.Decide what you want take test ride of all the bikes and choose accordingly

Q. I am planning to buy Vulcan S. Is it easy to ride in city? I am worried about low ground clearance.
  • Vulcan has a surprisingly good maneuverability for a bike of its size and weight. I (weighing just 65 KG) can weave through City traffic without much difficulty. However, note that the maneuverability is less than that of Thunderbird and Karizma (the other two bikes that I have). Secondly, its long turning radius makes it a little difficult to take U turns. Yes, its Low ground clearance is a bit of concern in cities. You need to be extra careful when you\'re approaching Speed bumps. If your plan is to use it mostly for City commute, Vulcan may not be a good option. If you plan to use it for a mix of City and Long rides ( frequent or occasional), you can go for it. In my case, I needed to buy a Cruiser in 6 - 7 Lac Price range and Vulcan turned out to bt the best option ( Kawasaki's engines are much more refined than Harley's or Hyosung's )
  • It does hinder the ride around Speed bumps. Rider needs to get the bike to almost complete halt while going over the Speed bumps. Trust me - I’ve been riding a Vulcan for 8 months !
  • You need to almost stop at speed breakers because the way these morons make them is horrible especially with a pillion rider and get a silencer protection or else it will scrap often.

Q. Can I go for long rides with my wife on Kawasaki Vulcan S?
  • Yes, me and my wife always go on rides together. We have completed rajasthan tour of 2500+km in 20 days. Ratlam to dehradun and nearby hill top locations (3000+ kms), Ratpam to pachmari (1500+kms) Ratlam to alibaug, goa and nearby areas ( 3500+kms) Still I will point out few things. The seats (rider and pillion both) of vulcan are bit hard, especially as the width of pillion seat is not enough, it gives lower back and Gluteus. Even for rider seat after few hours even with interval rests, the rider starts feeling stress in lower back, Shoulders, Scapula and Gluteus too. (Usually shoulder and scapula pains started after 10hrs of rides)For that I started using air seats for me and my wife, aditionally we both started using level 2 riding jackets, that gave both of us support on back and shoulders, padded gloves as after long time driving due to vibrations forearms starts to pain.So finally We are riding really good and the longest performed ride of ours with about 32 kg luggage was dehradun to ratlam which took us about 18 hrs (including 10-20 minutes rest about every 1 ot 1.30 hrs.
  • Sure you can.. Vulcan S is meant for long leisurely rides on highways ( rather than weaving through bumper to bumper City traffic ). I got my Pillion backrest made by Dochaki Customs, Pune which provides added comfort to the pillion.
  • Absolutely. Adding a backrest for the pillion makes things significantly better though.
