Year 2016 - 66 reg
Mileage 6,905
Engine 649cc

Registered September 2016 on a 66 plate and now with just 6,905 miles. Presented in Metallic Matt Carbon Grey the Kawasaki Vulcan is listed within the Cruiser section of the firm's range. Someone should really inform trade descriptions. Sure, the 649cc parallel twin looks like a laid-back device for sauntering about, admiring yourself in shop windows and perhaps considering getting a tattoo or growing a ponytail. However, this is a perky, light, exploitable roadster; a fun-to-ride middleweight naked, just one that happens to be low and with long raked-out forks.Riding the Vulcan is as taxing as remembering to blink. Steering is light and accurate, despite the stretched-out 31 degrees of rake and 120mm of trail, and it rolls cleanly into, through and out of corners with its easy-turning 160/60 rear tyre. Though 228kg sounds chubby for a 649cc parallel twin, the Kawasaki is flyweight for something with cruiser-style geometry and the mass is all carried somewhere below the low-slung 705mm seat. So the Vulcan is amazingly manageable. Even pushing it around the 650 feels like it weighs about half what it actually does.This particular Vulcan S is in excellent condition and benefits from Saddle Bags and a Sissy Bar.For further information on this vehicle, please call our showroom on 01273-020988.Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the above information, but errors may occur.
