The Breakdown: 2016 Kawasaki Vulcan S ABS

SPORT CRUISER PERFORMANCE – the 2016 Kawasaki Vulcan S ABS


Whether you’re commuting to work or enjoying a day trip, the Vulcan® S inspires confidence in riding and delivers exhilarating sport cruiser performance for maximum enjoyment on every ride.

 Kawasaki’s Key Points

SportBike-Derived chassis and suspension provides light and responsive handling for easy maneuvering and a sport feel.


7-Way adjustable rear spring preload allows suspension to be set softer for added cruising comfort or stiffer for a sportier feel.


SportBike-Influenced wheels and tires contribute to the light-handling feel and provide confident traction.


What is one of the toughest parts about getting into a new bike? Besides whether or not your feet touch the ground, footpegs, rear controls, front lever controls, and seat positioning/comfortability.


The ERGO-FIT Extended Reach (6’1 and over) provides 3 positions for your footpegs, adjustable handlebar levers, and an extended reach seat which improves hip support for the taller riders.

The ERGO-FIT Mid Reach (5’7 to 6’0) setting helps with the adjustable footpeg/handlebar variations. The front of the sculpted seat is tapered for an easy reach to the ground.

The ERGO-FIT Reduced Reach (5’6 and under) settings provided handlebar levers are positioned inward, while the ERGO-FIT Reduced Reach handlebar decreases reach by one inch. Three-position footpegs* like the other ERGO-FIT settings have also been adjusted one inch closer to your body for maximum comfort and confidence. Plus, you can cruise comfortably on a seat that moves you two inches forward on the tapered portion.

What is also cool, is that accessory shift-linkage rods can be used when changing footpeg position from standard. Meaning this could potentially help the reselling or swapping of these bikes depending on the owner/new owner.
