Kawasaki Vulcan S Pearl Lava Orange Launched In India: Kawasaki India has launched the Vulcan S Pearl Lava Orange at Rs 5.58 lakh ex-showroom (Delhi). The new orange colour of the Vulcan S will be sold alongside the original black shade.
When first launched in December 2017 at Rs 5.48 lakh, the Kawasaki Vulcan S came only in black. After getting a good market response for the cruiser, Kawasaki India has introduced a new colour for the Vulcan S at a higher price of Rs 5.58 lakh.
The design of the Kawasaki Vulcan S is similar to that of any other conventional cruiser. The riding ergonomics has been so developed keeping both male and female riders in mind.
To personalise the riding experience, the Vulcan S gets adjustable foot pegs with three available positions: Standard, 25mm forwards and 25mm backwards.
The Vulcan S chassis is based on that of the Kawasaki Ninja 650. It is powered by a 649cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine making 60.2bhp @ 7500rpm and 62.78Nm @ 6600rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
Seat height is set at 705mm, while the kerb weight is a good 235kg. At a ground clearance of 130mm, the Kawasaki Vulcan S is an ideal cruiser for Indian roads.
On the safety front, the new Kawasaki Vulcan S gets 300/250mm front/rear disc brakes. However, the Indian version misses out on ABS.
The new Kawasaki Vulcan S rivals the Harley-Davidson Street Rod 750 and the upcoming Royal Enfield 650 Twins – Continental GT 650 and Interceptor.
Thoughts On The New Kawasaki Vulcan S Pearl Lava Orange
The new shade of the Vulcan S looks really good, although it comes at an extra cost of Rs 10,000. The Ninja 650's engine has been retuned to match the Vulcan's cruiser characteristics, which include: linear torque, smooth revs and a good exhaust note.
With more such entry-level premium cruisers appearing in the market, major players such as Harley-Davidson will witness some tough competition. What do you think?
