Kawasaki Review: 2013 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic

The 2013 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic draws its styling cues from days when everyone who was anyone had a muscle car, 8-tracks pumped the tunes out and a low-slung motorcycle turned heads. The two-tone Special Edition pearl flat stardust white and flat ebony paint scheme and whitewall tires, it is definitely one bike to get noticed on, with its spoked wheels, low-slung seat and dual slash-cut mufflers. 

Just like on previous model, it is powered by a 903cc V-twin, an engine offering excellent performance, traditional styling and modern dependability. Rider floorboards and a heel/toe shifter enhance rider comfort and strengthen this motorcycle’s ties to tradition. Curved cooling fins on the big, classic-looking V-twin, which bristles with modern touches inside including four-valve-per-cylinder performance and liquid-cooled reliability.

The 2013 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic has low seat height and tapered seat suitable for shorter riders. Comfortable enough for any distance, the new front bucket seat features additional lumbar support for the rider and a longer seating area for the passenger. 

Wide handlebars, seat and floorboard layout offers an ideal ergonomic relationship, making for a relaxing mount. Rugged and reliable belt final drive keeps the overall weight down, improves rear-end styling and provides the rider with additional customizing opportunities. 

A wide audience are a fork offset and rake designed for light, effortless maneuvering at low, in-town speeds. It is equipped with an auto-fast idle system that uses an rpm feedback relay to help ensure a fixed engine speed in all starting conditions.
