Thoughts About The 2022 Kawasaki Vulcan S Launched In India

The Kawasaki Vulcan S is placed in the middle-weight cruiser segment with almost no direct rivals in the Indian market. Earlier, the Japanese cruiser rivalled the Harley Davidson Street 750. However, since the American motorcycle was discontinued in India, the Vulcan's closest rival is now the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650.

But, the Chennai-based manufacturer will introduce a new cruiser motorcycle soon that will directly rival the Vulcan S in India. For now, if anyone is looking to buy a middle-weight cruiser, then Kawasaki Vulcan S seems to be the only option. 2022 Vulcan S carries the new price tag after the recent price hike issued by the company — here are more details.
