Kawasaki has recently launched the BS6 Kawasaki Vulcan S in India. The updated Vulcan S will now cost ₹5.79 lakhs which is ₹30,000 more expensive than its predecessor. Kawasaki Vulcan S is the cruiser that is known for its performance.
However, the updated BS6 Kawasaki Vulcan S does not get any major changes apart from the engine refinement. The major missing features on the new Vulcan S is the TFT instrument cluster and LED headlamp. These features are now available on the updated Kawasaki Ninja 650 and Z650.
The 2021 Kawasaki Vulcan S remains the same as the older version. It gets the old oval headlamp, fuel tank, seat and side profile. Meanwhile, the taillamp of the Vulcan S also remains unchanged. The BS6 compliant Kawasaki Vulcan S gets a single paint option of Metallic Flat Raw Graystone with Red finishings.
The engine that powers this performance cruiser is a 649cc, parallel-twin unit. It produces a massive 61Ps of power and 62.4Nm of torque. Meanwhile, the bike still weighs 235 kgs along with a ground clearance of 130mm. The seat height also remains the same by 705mm.
Based upon the Perimeter type frame Kawasaki Vulcan S gets a 14-litre fuel tank. While the suspension in the front is a 41mm telescopic fork with 130mm up front. The rear suspension is an 80mm adjustable mono-shock unit. Braking duties on the Vulcan S are managed by the 300mm disc with a dual-piston caliper at the front. Meanwhile, the rear gets a 250mm disc with a single-piston caliper by Nissin.
The owner of the BS6 Kawasaki Vulcan S can ask for the additional ergonomic system for a personalized experience. The additional ergonomic system offers customized handlebar and footpegs as per the customer’s requirement.
With the introduction to the BS6 Kawasaki Vulcan S, Kawasaki completes its 650cc BS6 lineup in India. Other 650cc bikes by Kawasaki such as the Kawasaki Ninja 650 and Kawasaki Versys 650 already received the BS6 updates earlier.
