Easy-to-control 649cc liquid-cooled, 4-stroke Parallel Twin with Cleaner Emissions

Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve 649cc Parallel Twin with fuel injection delivers smooth, responsive performance, especially in the low and medium rpm ranges. The engine was tuned for rider-friendly power characteristics that will inspire confidence in new riders. The Vulcan S offers smooth starts from a standstill, smooth acceleration, and a satisfying pull when accelerating. The strong acceleration facilitates highway merging and passing.

Modern, urban styling

Flowing style with long-and-low stance and modern elements like the original headlamp and cast wheels with five spoke pair design give the Vulcan S very non-traditional cruiser looks.

Linkage-equipped offset laydown single-shock

Offset laydown single-shock rear suspension is equipped with linkage to enable a longer stroke for increased ride comfort.
The rear suspension arrangement also contributes to the bike’s compact design, freeing up space for a large-volume silencer under the engine. Rear shock features adjustable preload, with 7 positions to suit rider size and payload.

Large disc brakes

Large-diameter disc brakes balance ample stopping power with easy control for beginning riders.

Slim backbone-style rear frame

The design of the frame, rear suspension and swingarm create an integrated line running from the front of the bike to the rear hub.
A pipe frame of high-tensile steel gives the bike a lightweight appearance. 3D analysis was used to achieve the target rigidity and stress values.

Easy-to-read instrumentation

Original-design instrumentation cluster features an analogue-style tachometer and multi-purpose LCD.
Convenient features keep riders fully informed of operating conditions.

Light handling

Low overall weight, fine-tuned chassis rigidity balance, 18”/17” radial tyres and suspension settings result in a bike with light, easy handling and easy manoeuvrability.

Relaxed, foot-forward riding position

The compact engine and slim frame result in a design that is narrow at the knees and feet. Forward positioned footpegs are ideal for relaxed, cruiser style riding.

Long wheelbase

Wheelbase of 1,575 mm was chosen for a balance of light handling and superior riding stability.
The same characteristics that make it fun to ride (light handling and relaxed, rider-friendly ergonomics), also make the Vulcan S ideal for new riders.

Long range

With its 14-litre fuel tank capacity and the Parallel Twin engine’s good fuel economy, the long range offered by the Vulcan S means riders can go longer between fill-ups—convenient in town, and reassuring when out on a daytrip.

Under-engine muffler

Muffler located under the engine contributes to a low centre of gravity, and is tucked out of the way, making it easier to reach the ground when stopped. The muffler’s design conveys both power and style.

Gear Indicator

A gear indicator is standard equipment for BS-6 Vulcan S.
