- 2003 Kawasaki Vulcan 500 LTD

Good Times™ come in small packages.

Cruising is fun. Especially when you’re aboard a smooth-running Vulcan® 500 LTD. It’s a custom In-Line Twin offering responsive performance with a big dose of value. The 500 LTD is our lightest Vulcan, and its low 28.1-inch (715 mm) seat height and Positive Neutral Finder make it extra-friendly for new riders.


Kawasaki's answer to the entry-level cruiser question is the Vulcan 500 LTD. This economically priced motorcycle combines the style, fit and finish, and laid-back riding position of a larger cruiser with a versatile, powerful engine.

 

Features:

- In-Line twin-cylinder engine with efficient 4-valve heads and digital ignition for smooth, consistent power delivery.

- A gear-driven engine balancer, efficient liquid cooling and easy-maintenance final chain drive help ensure worry-free smoothness and proven reliability.

- The 6-speed gearbox features a Positive Neutral Finder to simplify finding neutral when you stop.

- Straight flow exhaust designed to boost low and mid-range power. Small diameter pipes help low speed pulling power.

- With a 3.3-gallon (700 litre) fuel tank, low 28.1-inch (715 mm) seat height and a powerful front disc brake for more predictable braking, the Vulcan 500 LTD is a perfect platform for your first cruiser experience.

- The Vulcan 500 LTD looks long, low, lean and clean thanks to its raked front fork, its tank-mounted speedometer, the wide handlebar bend, the thickly padded stepped seat and bobbed rear fender.

- Riding comfort is enhanced by the sophisticated twin adjustable rear shocks and the plush 41mm front fork.
