2016 Kawasaki Vulcan 900

Wearing its vintage appearance proudly, the 2016 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic features fat whitewall tires, valanced fenders, chrome where appropriate and a roomy sculpted flowing fuel tank that holds 5.3 gallons of regular.

Adding a dash of the modern, the 55-degree V-twin had an overhead cam above each cylinder, as well as water-cooling. The seat is dished, giving the Classic an approachable seat height below 27 inches. The relaxed rake and low swingarm, with the hardtail-looking rear end, means the Vulcan 900 Classic is easy to ride. A 300mm disc brake slows down the 130mm front tire.
