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?
