- 2001 Kawasaki Vulcan 800 Classic
.

With a nostalgic look of the '50s, the Vulcan 800 Classic features deep valanced fenders and a big, fat front tire on the spoked front wheel. Chromed covers enhance the fork downtubes and are topped off by a large chromed headlight housing. Two-tone paint graces the fuel tank while a tank-mounted speedometer gives it a custom look. The low-stepped seat adds to the low cruiser look and provides feet-on-the-ground comfort and stability when stopped.

 

2001 KAWASAKI VULCAN™ 800 CLASSIC

Style, image and a great value!

The Kawasaki Vulcan™ 800 Classic motorcycle provides all the attitude and image one expects from a classic-styled cruiser motorcycle. Add modern performance features and a great price and this V-twin cruiser is one of the best values in its class.

With a nostalgic look of the ’50s, the Vulcan 800 Classic features deep valanced fenders and a big, fat front tire on the spoked front wheel. Chromed covers enhance the fork downtubes and are topped off by a large chromed headlight housing, while a tank-mounted speedometer gives it a custom look. The low-stepped seat adds to the low cruiser look and provides feet-on-the-ground comfort and stability when stopped.

Powering the Vulcan 800 Classic is a rubber-mounted 805cc V-twin engine, featuring a single-pin crankshaft with a gear-driven balancer to reduce vibration. Finned cylinders and four-valve heads are liquid cooled for optimum thermal control. Concealed automatic cam chain tensioners preserve the engine’s clean lines and allow precise cam timing without maintenance. A spin-on oil filter helps make maintenance a quick and easy job.

The 36mm Keihin carburetor is equipped with an accelerator pump for quick throttle response. To take advantage of the engine’s broad torque curve, the five-speed transmission produces strong acceleration and a relaxed engine pace at highway speeds. The transmission also features Kawasaki’s exclusive Positive Neutral Finder, which simplifies finding neutral while at a stop.

The single backbone, double cradle frame design gives the Vulcan 800 Classic stability at highway speeds and maneuverability on city streets. At the rear of the frame, a sleek, triangulated steel swingarm and hidden Kawasaki UNI-TRAK® linkage rear suspension system provide a smooth ride while maintaining the look of a hard tail cruiser. A 41mm front fork adds to the handling and offers a wide stance for the classic cruiser look.

By combining modern performance and handling with the styling of a classic V-twin cruiser, the Vulcan 800 Classic does more than make a statement about style; it’s a value that lets the good times roll.
