2020 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom : BLACKED OUT DRAG STYLE.

2020 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom.

The Vulcan 900 Custom is a factory built custom bike that really stands out from the crowd – it is the result of Kawasaki’s pursuit of the essence of a true custom motorcycle. A study in contrasts, its low-set rear, massive rear tire and solid disc wheel are juxtaposed against a clean and lightweight front end.

The Vulcan® 900 Custom shares all of the attributes of the Vulcan 900 Classic but features custom styling with 21-inch front tire, drag-style handlebar and blacked-out parts that help present a more aggressive appearance.

The Vulcan® 900 Custom cruiser’s styling exudes attitude, from its tall front tire to blacked-out mufflers. In addition, the low-slung gunfighter-type seat, massive rear tire, stylish front-end accentuated by a thin 21” cast wheel and meticulously sculpted bodywork are standout features. For 2020, the Vulcan 900 Custom motorcycle is available in Metallic Matte Graphite Gray/Metallic Flat Spark Black.

The 900cc V-twin powered Kawasaki Vulcan® 900 motorcycle has all the style and attitude of a one-of-a-kind build. From the detailed paint job to the intense exhaust, the Vulcan 900 is an artful expression of individuality. Enjoy the dynamic fusion of hand-built design and premium fit and finish of the Vulcan 900—a tantalizing combination that could only come from Kawasaki.

2020 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features




2020 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

903cc V-Twin, SOHC 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 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 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.
  • Ultra-low 27-inch seat height allows riders to easily plant both-feet on the ground at stops.
  • Laid-back riding comfort for two.

Front and Rear Disc Brakes

  • A 300mm front and 270mm rear disc have twin-piston calipers for some of the best stopping power in the class.
  • Designed by hand, the cast wheel’s 18 “spokes” are tapered and flanged in two directions for an exquisite custom appearance.
  • Narrow profile for that custom American chopper look.
  • 180mm rear tire mounted on a solid 15-inch cast wheel provides added stability while projecting a powerful image.

Wider tire than that found on most large-displacement cruisers.
