India Kawasaki Motors has launched its first ever cruiser Vulcan S in India at Rs 5.44 lakh, ex-showroom. The bike will be displayed at the 2018 Auto Expo near Delhi.
The cruiser is very suitable for all riders including new riders and female riders, the company said.
Yutaka Yamashita, Managing Director, India Kawasaki Motor, said – “After our sports bikes, tourer bikes, naked bikes & off road bikes settled in India, we felt it was a right time for us to bring this cruiser in the market. There cannot be a better way to start a new year by introduction of our world-wide known Vulcan brand.”
Powering the Vulcan S is a Liquid-cooled 649 cc Parallel-Twin engine, producing 61 PS @ 7,500 rpm and 63 Nm of torque @ 6,600 rpm, paired to a 6-Speed gearbox.
The bike features adjustable foot pegs (3 positions), handle and seat. ABS comes as standard.
Yutaka Yamashita further added, “FUN TO RIDE is Kawasaki’s global ideology, which perfectly fits to Vulcan S. It is different than any other cruiser mainly because of its powerful, yet easy-to-control engine, easy manoeuvring, light weight, yet stable, and highway riding and important to mention 14 litre fuel tank with good fuel economy.”
Vulcan S will be assembled in Chakan plant in Pune. Bookings open and will be available only in flat ebony colour.
