/
THE KAWASAKI DIFFERENCE

THE VULCAN® 900 CLASSIC OFFERS CLEAN, FLOWING LINES FOR A LOOK AS SMOOTH AS THE RIDE ON THIS KAWASAKI MID-SIZE CRUISER. POWERED BY A 903cc V-TWIN, THE VULCAN 900 CLASSIC HAS THE MUSCLE TO MATCH ITS BOLD APPEARANCE, WITH A 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 the 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 180mm rear tire is the widest in its class
