Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve 649cc parallel twin with fuel injection delivers smooth, responsive performance, especially in the low and medium rpm ranges. The Ninja® 650-based engine is retuned for even more rider-friendly power characteristics that will inspire confidence in new riders.
The Vulcan S offers smooth starts from a standstill, smooth acceleration, and a satisfying pull when accelerating. The strong acceleration helps with highway merging and passing.
Intake porting, camshaft profiles and long-type intake funnels contribute to strong low-mid rpm performance, contributing to the smooth acceleration and good pull feeling.
Crankshaft design includes a heavier flywheel mass than the Ninja 650. This contributes to the easy-to-use engine character so it is very smooth when rolling on and off the throttle which makes pulling away from a stop easier.
Connector tube joining the header pipes helps eliminate peaks and valleys in the torque curve, resulting in smoother power delivery.
The design of the under-engine muffler contributes to strong torque in the low-mid rpm range wich helps with control at lower engine speeds.
Parallel twin engine is compact and helps reduce the dimensions of the entire motorcycle to keep it small and nimble.
180-degree crankshaft plus balancer shaft for extremely smooth engine operation.
Triangular crank and transmission shaft layout makes the engine very short from front to back, a semi-dry sump(KP) oil system reduces overall engine height, while the narrow pitch of the chrome composite(KP) plated aluminum cylinders helps reduce engine width.
Positive Neutral Finder(KP)
Just lift the shift pedal from first gear at a stop to select neutral easily.
A Kawasaki exclusive.
Digital Fuel Injection (KP)
Fuel injection settings provide smooth low end response while contributing to the engine‘s quickrevving character.
Dual 38mm Keihin throttle bodies feature sub-throttle valves(KP) for high power output with smooth, sensitive throttle response. The sub throttles, located behind the main throttle valves, are controlled by the ECU so that the EFI system has smooth throttle response.
Precise fuel injection plus exhaust catalyzer significantly reduce emissions.
Fine-atomizing fuel injectors produce a fine fuel mist for better acceleration, combustion and fuel consumption.
The chassis is slim and lightweight, due in part to the compact design of the engine. Light, easy handling is complemented by a reassuring low seat height and a slim design that makes it easy to reach the ground. The low overall weight is apparent as the bike is lifted off its side stand, making the Vulcan S one of the most accommodating bikes for new riders available.
The compact engine allows use of a slim, minimalist frame, resulti
