Kawasaki has launched the 2021 BS6 compliant Vulcan S, in India at Rs 5.79 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi). That means the Vulcan S is Rs 30,000 more expensive than its BS4 version.
Vulcan S remains its modern cruiser styling by keeping the oval-shaped headlamp, fuel tank, split seat and a long, swooping rear fender and other design elements keep unchanged. The changes have been made in the paint scheme. Kawasaki has introduced Metallic Flat Raw Gray stone. It features a red stripe on the fuel-tank and alloy wheels.
The new Kawasaki 2020 Vulcan S is powered by the same 649cc liquid cooled, parallel-twin cylinder engine mated with a six speed gearbox. This engine can produce a maximum power of 60bhp at 7500rpm and a peak torque of 62.4Nm at 7000rpm.
The same perimeter type frame suspended on 41 mm telescopic forks with 130 mm travel at front and an offset preload adjustable monoshock with 80 mm travel at the back. Vulcan S comes equipped with dual-channel ABS as standard braking system. This bike provides dual 300 mm disc brakes at the front and a single 250 mm unit at the rear.
Some other features of Vulcan S are 14-litre fuel tank, up-right adjustable handlebar, well cushioned seats and foot pegs giving more preference for long-distance travelling.
