Vul­can S hits the road

Auto Today - - Update! -

KAWASAKI HAS launched their first cruiser in India, the Vul­can S. With its long and low pro­file, al­loy wheels and off­set monoshock at the rear, the mo­tor­cy­cle looks more pow­er­cruiser than out­right cruiser.

At the heart of the Vul­can S sits the 649cc en­gine, bor­rowed from the Ninja 650. With a dif­fer­ent tune, the fa­mil­iar par­al­lel twin cylin­der en­gine pro­duces 60bhp at 7,500rpm and 63Nm torque at 6,600rpm.

The six speed gear­box is car­ried over. Sus­pen­sion com­po­nents are the same with 41mm di­am­e­ter front forks and the off­set rear monoshock, ad­justable for preload only. Brak­ing is han­dled via a sin­gle 300m disc up front and 250mm disc at the rear, with dual chan­nel ABS stan­dard. The Vul­can S is priced at Rs 5.44 lakh, ex-show­room.

Kawasaki also an­nounced the Ninja 650 ABS in a new blue colour for the new model year, that will re­place the black op­tion from the lineup. The Ninja 650 is pow­ered by a 649cc, par­al­lel twin cylin­der en­gine. In this ap­pli­ca­tion it is tuned to make 68bhp at 8,000rpm and 66Nm torque at 6,500rpm. The price of the Ninja 650 re­mains the same at Rs 5.33 lakh, ex-show­room.
