• 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.

24-Month Warranty
• Vulcan LT models feature a 24-month factory warranty.

ENGINE

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.

Digital Fuel Injection (KP)
• 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.

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.
