Kawasaki has launched the new Vulcan S in India at Rs 5.44 lakh (ex-showroom). The Vulcan S will be assembled at its plant in Chakan. It is the first cruiser bike from Kawasaki to be launched in India. The new Vulcan S has a modern cruiser styling and is based on the Kawasaki Ninja 650 sports tourer.It is powered by a liquid-cooled 649cc parallel twin derived from the Ninja 650, but with revised cam profiles, modified intake tract, exhaust and ECU. This means the engine displacement is same but has been detuned for more torque than peak power.
In terms of engine specifications, the engine produces around 61Ps of power at 7,500rpm and 62.8Nm of maximum torque at 6,600rpm. Power is transmitted via a six-speed transmission. A low seat height and friendly power delivery makes the Vulcan S a perfect cruiser for beginners or for riders who want to get back to leisure motorcycling. The overall dynamics and friendly power delivery make the Vulcan S a friendly bike, around town, on the highway and even on twisty mountain roads.
In India, the Kawasaki Vulcan S will compete against the likes of Harley-Davidson Street 750 and the upcoming Royal Enfield Interceptor 650. The Vulcan’s USP will be modern, cruiser looks with a proven engine and Kawasaki reliability.
