Kawasaki to launch the 2015 Vulcan S cruiser
The Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer, once again, are in the limelight revealing their entry-level cruiser – the Vulcan S – which will officially make its début at the EICMA this November.
The Vulcan S is powered by a 649cc, 4-stroke, parallel twin engine, also seen in the Ninja 650 and ER-6n, producing 61 PS and 63 Nm of torque in its cruiser avatar, and is mated to a 6-speed transmission. The 2015 Vulcan S boasts of an array of features which include adjustable foot pegs, comfortable “Ergo-Fit” seat, adjustable handlebars, optional ABS and an analogue/digital instrument console.
Kawasaki are offering the 2015 Vulcan S in four colour options- Metallic Royal Purple, Pearl Crystal White, Candy Lime Green and Flat Ebony. It has been reported the Vulcan S will be priced at approximately $7,000 (Rs 4.2 lakh) and $7,400 (Rs 4.5 lakh) with ABS.
Kawasaki already have the Z250 and the ER-6n motorcycles in India so it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that Kawasaki’s new entry-level cruiser, the Vulcan S, will also arrive in India soon.
