2016 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic


The Vulcan® 900 Classic offers clean, flowing lines for a look as smooth as the ride that comes from the Kawasaki® mid-size cruiser. Powered by a 903 cc V-twin, the Vulcan 900 Classic has the muscle to match its bold appearance, plush bucket seat and spacious floorboards for all-day comfort.

  • 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
  • Rider floorboards with heel / toe shifter enhance rider comfort
  • Tank-mounted instrumentation on class-leading 5.3 gallon fuel tank
  • Adding to the look and feel of the bike, the 180 mm rear tire is the widest in its class


  • 12 Month Limited Warranty
