Japanese American cruiser gets a new look
The Kawasaki Vulcan S is an American cruiser with a 649cc water-cooled, four-stroke DOHC twin-cylinder engine that has not been significantly revised since its release in June 2015, allowing many riders to enjoy a comfortable ride. With a very low seat height of 705mm, easy-to-handle handlebars, and adjustable pedals, the VULCAN S allows even small riders to experience high-speed cruising and mountain cornering at the same time.
For the 2022 VULCAN S, KAWASAKI has removed the Ebony color and added Candy Crimson Red for the new year. -m/6,600rpm and the fuel consumption of WMTC Mode has slightly increased from 22.8km/L to 23.0km/L. The proposed price for the 2022 VULCAN S in Japan has been increased to ¥913,000 (approximately NT$222,000), an increase of ¥55,000 compared to the current model, and is expected to be available at KAWASAKI dealers throughout Japan from January 14, 2022.
