In 1985 Kawasaki launched, worldwide, the Vulcan VN700A, its first cruiser powered by its first V-twin engine. The VN700A has a shaft drive. Kawasaki also made the now rare VZ 750 variant with chromed wheel arches and other subtle differences.

The Kawasaki Vulcan is equipped with a single-pod semi-digital instrument console with a large analogue tachometer taking centre stage. An interesting aspect of the Vulcan is the fact that the rider can alter the riding position depending on his need. It is offered with three-way adjustable handlebar and footpeg position so riders of varying sizes will be comfortable on the new cruiser bike. Despite its cut-throat pricing, Kawasaki haven’t skimped on ABS as the Vulcan S comes equipped with dual channel ABS, which is a good move.
