Versys seat

2 up riding.Low seat height.Versys seat is way to hi for any passenger to climb onto.

Very comfortable, reliable

Very comfortable, Reliable and plenty of power to cruise at highway speeds.I've put 5000miles on mine in the first year just chain maintenance and oil changes and the bike will run forever.It has lots of low end torque so off the line this bike moves but if you cruising at 70 mph mostly any other parallel twin naked bike will leave you in the dust.But that fine with me this bake checks all the boxes and it looks good as well for the price.

Reliable cruiser

4.2

Most reliable cruiser.Solid, High quality frame and parts as expected from kawasaki.Having a forward placed parallel twin engine, There is minimum heat felt around the thighs giving it more advantage over the popular v twin engine cruisers.Also parallel twin reduces the vibration of the vehicle, Elongating the life of all the parts.Engine mapping could have been improved as it is still sporty like the other models of kawasaki fitting with the same 650cc engine.The bike always seems to be in an accelerated mode and never seems to settle down at cruising speeds between 100 to 125 kmps.Having listed the pros here are few cons too: poor ground clearance due to bulky catalytic converter and long wheel base.Uninteresting exhaust note.Expensive spare parts.In my opinion: the most practical and reliable cruiser that is available in india at the moment if it is within the buyer's budget.

Exhaust sound

4.2

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.

Best Bike

It's an incredible cruiser machine with a design and engineering that connects with your soul. The precision and ease of riding bring sheer joy, whether in the city or on the highway. The switchgear is top-notch, offering a great feel and rider's delight. The proven 650cc twin engine is constantly updated for performance.

It is one of the best bikes

4.6

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.
