Kawasaki VN 900



Being half way through the Vulcan the Kawasaki Vulcan 900 demonstrates it being caught in the middle. of this fact is the bike’s lines inspired from the Vulcan 2000 and the mid-size which is characteristic for these of motorcycles.

Like you’ve gotten used to, 900s awesome roll-on acceleration the help of good power and but when these bikes their credit by featuring bike” looks that is you know you have a successful This is also the case this Kawasaki.


The 900 isn’t a long-standing model in history but I do know it is one hell of a Introduced in 2006, this cruiser was the first in Kawasaki’s to ever feature a belt and a fuel injection system. two features practically set it as a customer’s from the first day it started produced.

Also, the 900cc was appreciated by the motorcycle press for a jewel and a great performer as the innovations clearly did their

Being good looking, performing and marking a new beginning at the Vulcan 900 remained unchanged but to further enjoy its success. It just that as a 2008 year.


The closest competitor for the of this review is the Suzuki C50, a bike built by the recipe and featuring almost the success as the Kawasaki Vulcan The bike features classic and a torque 50 cubic inch so it delivers strong low-end and torque for strong acceleration, like the Kawasaki.

Honda’s to the 900cc Vulcan is the Shadow a cruiser featuring full-sized and 750cc performance with the of being cheaper than the Honda aims at success by a cruiser featuring a long and low covered with retro-styled As the Vulcan, the other most feature is its engine, in this a 750cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin ready to be put to the test the fuel injected V-twin on the Kawasaki.

The Yamaha V Star doesn’t quite dispose of a motor, but it is still a middleweight so it is suitable for the fight against the I’ve just talked More important, it features final drive, so it is well mentioning it in this heading.


First, the Kawasaki catches its future rider’s with clean classic which are inspired from its siblings and it then uses the ergonomics in order to get him completely. We all that we like mid-size to look bigger, more and implicit more able, and is what the Kawasaki Vulcan 900 does.

The bike gets its cruiser curves from its fenders and nicely shaped tank but what really for itself is the chrome found all this bike. On the headlight and the air cleaner, on the exhaust and signal cover, or on the rear fender Kawasaki knows that it have the needed effect.

The wheels accentuate the old-bike but what I appreciate most are the pullback handlebars found on thing.

If you are already thinking on a color, you will be glad to out that it can be painted Ebony, Titanium, Candy Caribbean or Candy Caribbean Blue. so many colors available, it sure to look awesome on the boulevard and down the highway.

Test Drive

It is an absolute to ride the Kawasaki Vulcan 900 (you will agree me on this one), the bike has a bit of You will be comfortably accommodated in the seat and start to enjoy the impressive riding position the engine produces a healthy sound.

On the boulevard, the Vulcan 900 really some heads and I have to I had a great time admiring the and myself in the shiny windows. But bike is built to be ridden so as I its throttle, I noticed the responsive coming from the fuel-injected, SOHC, 4-valve cylinder V-twin. This is no arm stretching but you should prepare yourself for acceleration as a result of the power and produced by the mid-sized V-twin.

The cars look nice in its view mirrors as the bike its wheels rapidly from signs but once again, do not to get a fever from it.

Plenty of for highway passing in top gear, the riding position becomes in this environment, and the ride a dream incursion. I decided to get the out of it and for me that means reaching the TopSpeed. I managed to hit 100 mph, level where the vibrations in the and handlebars become obvious.

are not disturbing and the bike could go like this forever, but it is of a reminder of what bike you are on.

I always say that a cruiser be enjoyed at decent speeds and I change my opinion now, but if you are in a with bigger cruisers, it is worth giving it a bit of gas.
