A Motorcycle Review of the Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic LT

Ready for a Middleweight Tourer with All the Amenities? The Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic LT Might Be Your Answer

In the space between heavyweight cruisers and beginner bikes, there is one of the most popular segments of motorcycling, the middleweights. This segment of motorcycles consists of any motorcycle with a displacement of between 650cc and 1000cc. At the upper end of that range sits the Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic LT.

This middleweight motorcycle presents a practical approach to touring for someone looking for two-up riding capability in a motorcycle which has great range and better fuel economy than heavyweight cruisers. Where it steps away from smaller motorcycles is in its size. The Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic LT is one meaty looking motorcycle. It invites you to stretch out with its rider floorboards, and parks comfortably beside much larger bikes without looking like a toy.

Not quite a beginner motorcycle, riders looking to downsize from an 1800cc+ motorcycle will appreciate the power available to them with the Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic LT, combined with the effortless handling they’ll find in a lighter, more nimble motorcycle.

The Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic LT is Kawasaki’s light touring motorcycle, designated by the LT moniker at the end of its name. The LT means that this Kawasaki is equipped with touring features such as a special touring seat, saddlebags, adjustable windshield, and a passenger backrest. The Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic LT’s leather saddlebags, unlike some brands of bags, are dyed in a process which is simply called deep drum dying.

This means simply that the leather for the bags isn’t just dipped in the dye quickly, but is left to sit so that when the leather gets older, it won’t flake the way that some manufacturer’s leather products will. The adjustable windshield can be set at several heights to suit the rider’s comfort, and rider floorboards are a welcome addition. The only oversight on amenities on the Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic LT is the missing passenger floorboards.

Passengers would certainly appreciate not having to deal with the scrawny foot pegs on the Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic LT, but perhaps the next model year will see the Kawasaki engineers get it right.
