2019 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

903cc V-Twin, SOHC Engine
• Tuned to deliver lots of torque from low rpm.
• Precise tolerances for strong and reliable performance.
• Gear-driven balancer allows use of single pin crankshaft without the heavy vibration.

Liquid and Air Cooling
• Finned cylinders and heads combine with liquid cooling to provide exceptional thermal control.
• Maintains consistent engine temperatures for long engine life and sustained power.

Rubber-Mounted Engine
• Reduces excess engine vibration at all speeds.

Positive Neutral Finder(KP)
• Just lift the shift pedal from first gear at a stop to select neutral easily, every time.
• A Kawasaki exclusive.

Digital Fuel Injection (KP)
• Dual throttle bodies with dual throttle valves(KP) provide optimum performance and rideability. The sub throttles, located behind the main throttle valve, are controlled by the ECU so that the DFI® system retains more precise throttle response, similar to a constant velocity carburetor.
• Fine-atomizing fuel injectors produce a fine fuel mist for better acceleration, combustion and fuel consumption.

Kevlar-Reinforced Belt Drive
• Lower unsprung weight than shaft drive to improve ride quality and suspension action.
• More efficient so more power reaches the rear wheel, compared to shaft drive.
• Cleaner and lower maintenance than chain drive.

Double Cradle Frame
• Large-diameter box section backbone is very rigid, allows use of a larger fuel tank, and helps contribute to high stability and lightweight handling at low speeds.
• Triangular swingarm appears to be a hard tail design, but acts on a single shock hidden beneath the seat.
• Long and low for minimal seat height, maximum visual impact.
• Fork offset and frame geometry combine for light, low-effort handling at ultra-low speeds.
• Long wheelbase adds to highway stability.

Low Stepped Seat
• Ultra-low 26.4-inch seat height allows riders to easily plant both-feet on the ground at stops.
• Laid-back riding comfort for two.

Spoke Wheels
• Chromed steel rims and spokes, for retro style.
• “Spool-style” polished aluminum front hub.

Wide Rear Tire
• 180mm rear tire provides added stability while projecting a powerful image.
• Wider tire than that found on most large-displacement cruisers.
