Westrand Car Show - 2013 Kawasaki VN 900

Kawasaki VN 900

The Kawasaki Vulcan 900 motorcycle (VN900) is a mid-sized motorcycle “boulevard cruiser” motorcycle which was first introduced in 2006. The cycle follows the formula of a smaller but powerful engine fitted into a one-size up frame. It is a a popular combination also in use the other top three Japanese manufacturers in their respective “Boulevard cruiser” lines.

Food and Drink

The VN900 is similar in appearance to the Harley-Davidson Softail Deluxe or the Fat Boy. It is powered by a water cooled 903 cc V-Twin engine, with a five-speed transmission.

Other standard equipment includes a 20 L fuel tank, front and rear disk brakes, electronic fuel injection, and a belt for the final drive.

The VN900D or Classic LT is the touring edition of the basic VN900. The major differences include factory installed windshield, saddlebags, and a backrest. Additionally, a studded seat replaces the standard unit.

Then there is the VN900C Custom, which is regarded as the more aggressively styled sister of the VN900. Major changes are cast alloy wheels (solid on the rear, and spoked for the front), a much larger diameter 21 in 80/90 front wheel, redesigned fenders, forward controls with pegs (as opposed to floorboards), a smaller headlight, and drag-style bars. Also different is the slimmer one-piece seat, which is still capable of carrying a passenger, but not quite as comfortably as the VN900.
