The Vulcan S is not your average cruiser. It stands apart, with its Parallel Twin engine, unique frame and suspension layout, and its very non-traditional looks. Designed for independent-minded riders, it does not require the rider to conform to any herd mentality fashion or lifestyle. Special attention paid to ensuring high levels of fit & comfort, and confidence in riding make the new Vulcan an attractive option for new riders and female riders looking for a stylish, accommodating motorcycle. Accessible in all senses of the word, with the Vulcan S riders can come as they are, and just get on and go.


As the kind of bike a rider chooses to ride is often a reflection of the rider’s character, so too the bike’s styling reflects the rider’s tastes. For riders who prefer not follow the crowd, the unique design of the Vulcan S offers a stylish, modern alternative to the traditional cruiser image.


Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve 649 cm3 Parallel Twin with fuel injection delivers smooth, responsive performance, especially in the low and medium rpm ranges. The engine was tuned for 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 facilitates highway merging and passing.


Curved, flowing style blended with a powerful, long-and-low stance and modern elements creates a unique, eye-catching design.
* Inverted triangle headlamp contributes to the Vulcan S’s fresh, unique design. A position lamp is built into the upper portion of the headlamp unit.

* Tapered handlebar is fatter in the middle, contributing to a strong appearance of the handle area.


Foot pegs position is adjustable with three positions available: STD, 25 mm (1”) forward, 25 mm (1”) back. (*Alternate shift linkage rods, sold separately, are necessary when changing the position from standard.
