2017 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom


Right off the showroom floor, the Kawasaki® Vulcan® 900 Custom V-twin has all the style and attitude of a one-of-a-kind build. With its tall front wheel, drag-style chrome handlebars and low-slung seat, the appearance of this Kawasaki V-twin stands in almost stark contrast to its smooth ride and steadfast reliability. Enjoy the dynamic fusion of hand-built design and production quality with the Vulcan 900 Custom.

  • Fuel-injected 903 cc V-twin delivers ample roll-on power and excellent fuel economy
  • Low seat height adds to rider confidence by enabling both feet to be placed on ground at stops
  • Wide drag bars enable plenty of leverage from the comfortable and roomy one-piece seat, and forward-mounted footpegs complete the relaxed, nonchalant riding stance
  • Low center of gravity for easy handling
  • Custom styling with teardrop tank, parallel slash cut pipes, pinstripe wheels and engine fins
