2023 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.
