2020 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic LT Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Tour Ready

Saddlebags

  • Slant top opening lid, fastened with two 1.5-inch wide leather straps with chrome buckles and quick release stealth fasteners.
  • Dual panel lid construction with embossed Vulcan logo detail.
  • One-half inch diameter chrome plated brass stud accents.
  • Metal reinforced upper edge so bags hold their shape.
  • Rolled and riveted top lid minimizes water entry.

Seat

  • Detailed with ½-inch diameter chrome plated brass studs.

Passenger Backrest

  • Classic tombstone shape.
  • Strong chrome plated steel supports.
  • Pad cover detailed with chrome plated brass studs.

Windscreen

  • Thick, optically correct acrylic plastic windscreen is shaped for smooth airflow and cruiser style.
  • Strong chrome plated steel supports.
  • Adjustable height to fit riders, needs.

Two-Tone Paint

  • Rich color combinations highlight the elegant fender and tank design.
  • Vulcan LT models feature a 24-month factory warranty.

 

ENGINE

  • Tuned to deliver lots of torque from low rpm.
  • Smooth and reliable.
  • Gear-driven balancer allows use of single pin crankshaft for that classic V-twin rumble 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.
  • Automatic fan keeps things cool even in traffic.
  • Includes temperature warning light.

Rubber-Mounted Engine

  • Eliminates 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.
  • Dual throttle bodies(KP) 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.

 

FRAME

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 hardtail 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.
