2004 Kawasaki Vulcan 750 Review
2004 Kawasaki Vulcan 750
The next step up…
After getting comfortable on the Kawasaki Vulcan 500 LTD entry-level cruiser, those who are ready to step up their ride look to the 2004 Kawasaki Vulcan 750. This mid-sized cruiser offers the same low-slung riding position of its bigger siblings, and with everything from a torquey V-twin engine to chrome-encrusted bodywork, the stylish 750 is certainly an attention-getter.
A low-maintenance shaft drive transmits power from the five-speed transmission to the beefy 15-inch rear wheel. Plus, the easy-shifting gearbox features Kawasaki’s exclusive Positive Neutral Finder, which allows for easy and accurate shifting from first into neutral when stopped. Air-assisted rear shocks with four clicks of rebound damping adjustment offer a smooth and controlled ride, while dual front discs provide reliable stopping power. Full instrumentation, including both coolant-temperature and fuel-level gauges, and a centerstand are standard fare.
Hydraulic valve lash adjusters ease maintenance and liquid cooling increases overall engine durability. Plus, the engine itself is rubber-mounted within the double-cradle, high-tensile steel frame to reduce vibration at the handlebar and footpegs.
Powered by a liquid-cooled, double overhead cam 749cc V-twin engine, the 2004 Vulcan 750 is powerful and low-maintenance.
