Bike Description for
VULCAN 900 ( CLASSIC )
|Every wonder why cruisers always look so sharp? Because they’re just as much fun to polish as they are to ride. It’s called pride of ownership. The VN900 Classic shares many of the long-and-low styling cues from the stunning VN2000. Easy to ride and very rider friendly, the VN900 offers the look, feel and craftsmanship found in bigger cruisers. Like a beautiful woman, the VN900 looks good from every angle. Whether rolling down the street or parked in front of a café, this is one sharp-looking machine.|
Satisfying V-Twin Power
Liquid-cooled, 903 cm³ V-Twin power plant features the same combustion chamber and intake/exhaust porting design concept as that of the mighty VN2000.
Wide Fuel Tank
The wide fuel tank tapers at the rear, contributing to the VN900’s curvaceous figure. The fuel tank’s curves have constantly varying radii, giving the bike a dynamism that is both powerful and sexy. Its hand-sculpted contours are pleasing to both the eye and to the touch.
At the seat, the fender is as wide as that of the VN2000, but like the fuel tank it tapers elegantly at the rear. The length of the fender was designed to best show off the massive rear tyre.
Fat Rear Tyre
Second only to that of the VN2000, the massive 180 mm rear tyre gives the rear of the bike a powerful image. (At 180 mm, this tyre is wider than most large displacement Cruisers, including all of Kawasaki’s 1600cc models !)
Frame / Swingarm
Truss-style triangulated swingarm like that on the VN2000 has a matt black finish.
The fuel tank and fenders follow the same design theme: twin valleys running the length of the bike. At the seat, the fender is as wide as that of the VN2000, but like the fuel tank it tapers elegantly at the rear. The length of the fender was designed to best show off the massive rear tyre.
Large-faced speedometer features an easy-to-read multi-function LCD display, warning lamps – and even a fuel gauge (instead of a reserve setting on the fuel petcock – the norm for this class).
Dual Disc Brakes
While rear drum brakes are the norm for mid-size Cruisers, the VN900 comes with large diameter disc brakes front and rear.
