  1. General Details

    HAND-CRAFTED BEAUTY MEETS THE JOY OF CRUISING

    The new Vulcan 900 Custom is a factory built custom bike that really stands out from the crowd – it is the result of Kawasaki’s pursuit of the essence of a true custom motorcycle. A study in contrasts, its low-set rear, massive rear tyre and solid disc wheel are juxtaposed against a clean and lightweight front end. This dichotomy adds to the dynamism of the svelte bodywork whose seductive curves trace voluptuous lines that machines alone are incapable of forming.
