The good news is that it is expected to be assembled in India, putting a very attractive sticker price of around Rs 6 lakh (ex-showroom).

Vulcan S

In the international market, the Vulcan S is offered with customized ergonomics - dealer-installed seat, footpeg and handlebar options at no extra cost. That certainly makes it an attractive consideration for the average Indian and even riders of short stature, to customize the ergonomics according to individual preference. ABS is standard on the Vulcan S, but could be offered as an option here in India.

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.
  • I have 6 bike including the Versys 650 the Vulcan is a way better choice it has great mileage I am not 100% sure about how it would preform on the roads down there. It is a really good bike for a really good price and i would highly recommend it.

Q. HOW IS THE OVERALL PERFORMANCE OF THIS BIKE - Vulcan S?
  • There’s no question on its performance as its well refined Engine is the same as the one in the acclaimed Ninja 650 ( but tuned differently for a Cruiser). Power and Torque are more than enough for touring. It has reasonably good maneuverability for city riding even though its heaviness and long turning radius can be felt at times. Suspension isn’t great and lower ground clearance is a real pain around speed bumps. If you’re looking for an ‘Entry level Premium Cruiser’ for long highway rides and non-peak hour City commutes, this is perhaps the best available option among Street 750 and Aquila 650.
  • 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.
