STRONG, USABLE POWER
The Vulcan 900 Classic’s 903cm³ V-Twin engine boasts the highest power and torque output in the mid-sized class. Utilising a single-pin crankshaft for that meaty V-twin sound and feel, it delivers smooth, usable power throughout the low to mid rev-range. Tuned to deliver a healthy dose of torque at low rpm.
FOUR VALVE CYLINDER HEAD
Provides maximum valve area for optimum flow, resulting in more power and more low-end torque. Single overhead cam design is simple, lightweight and practical. Extremely efficient intake tracts feature ports that narrow near the combustion chamber to increase intake flow speed for more efficient filling and increased torque.
Exceptional thermal control with finned cylinders and cylinder head, combined with liquid cooling maintains consistent engine temperatures for long engine life and sustained power. Automatic fan keeps things cool even in traffic. Includes temperature warning light.
CLASSIC LOOKS AND COMFORT
Rider footboards and heel-toe shift give the look and style of the Classic Cruiser. The seat features improved lumbar support for the rider and a wider and longer rear section for passenger comfort. the ultra-low seat height allows riders to easily plant both feet on the ground at stops. Laid-back riding comfort for two.
Lower unsprung weight than shaft drive to improve ride quality and suspension action. More efficient so more power reaches the rear wheel compared to shaft drive. Cleaner and lower maintenance than chain drive.
EASY TO READ
The instrument panel gives you the information you need at a glance in a compact design complements the bike’s clean look. 20L fuel tank is made for those days where you just want to keep on riding.
SMOOTH FRONT END
41mm front forks provide excellent rigidity and 150 mm of travel – the most in its class. 32-degree rake angle for excellent straight line tracking while having a low and solid look. Wide fork pitch for classic cruiser feel.
The 300mm front and 270mm rear brake rotors are gripped by twin-piston calipers for some of the best stopping power in the class.
The CLASSIC’s ultra low seat features lumbar support for the rider and with a long and wide passenger pad for excellent passenger comfort.
SLICK AND WIDE
Chromed steel rims and spokes with “Spool-style” polished aluminum front hub. The 180mm rear tyre provides added traction while projecting a powerful image. Wider tyre than that found on most large-displacement cruisers.
The tank-mounted instrument console is slim and lightweight, contributing to the bike’s elegant lines.
