Features

Ergo-Fit®

  • ADJUST YOUR RIDING POSITION TO FIT YOUR HEIGHT AND REACH: Take command of comfort with 18 different adjustable configurations to achieve your preferred fit.
  • A PERFECT FIT: ERGO-FIT® is an exclusive sizing system that creates the perfect fit for riders of all sizes by offering adjustments to the bike’s seat, footpegs and handlebar to accommodate the rider’s height and reach. With 18 possible configurations between Reduced Reach, Mid Reach, and Extended Reach, ERGO-FIT helps produce a more comfortable and confident riding experience. After you purchase a Vulcan® S motorcycle, you’ll have the option to get fitted at no additional cost. And at dealerships with an ERGO-FIT Center, it's even more convenient to get fitted.
  • 5'6" AND UNDER: This configuration is the starting point for shorter to average-height riders. The handlebar is positioned one inch closer to you for a confident riding experience, while the Reduced Reach sculpted seat is tapered and moves you two inches forward. Footpegs are placed rearward for an optimal leg stretch*. *Accessory shift-linkage rods required when changing footpeg position from standard.
  • 5'7" TO 6'0": This configuration is the starting point for average-height riders. The handlebar is positioned to accomodate both average-height and taller riders. The Mid Reach sculpted seat is tapered for an easy reach to the ground and footpegs are placed in the standard position for optimal comfort.
  • 6'1" AND OVER: This configuration is the starting point for average-height to tall riders. The handlebar is positioned to accommodate both taller and average-height riders, while Extended Reach sculpted seat moves hip support back an inch to provide extra room. Additionally, footpegs are placed forward for optimal leg comfort.* *Accessory shift-linkage rods required when changing footpeg position from standard.

Performance

  • SPORT CRUISER PERFORMANCE: The Vulcan® S motorcycle delivers exhilarating sport cruiser performance for maximum enjoyment on every ride.
  • SMOOTH & ADJUSTABLE: Built to accommodate a variety of riders, the rear shock features a seven-position preload adjuster that can optimize the rear suspension, ensuring a smooth, comfortable ride. Adjustments can be made to suit rider preference⁠—a softer setting for a more plush feel or stiffer setting for a sportier ride.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT & RESPONSIVE: Sportbike-derived chassis and suspension provides light and responsive handling for easy maneuvering and sporty feel.
  • OPTIMAL TRACTION: Sportbike-influenced wheels and tires contribute to the light-handling feel and provide confident traction.

Power

  • SPORTBIKE DNA: Powered by a 649cc Ninja®-derived engine, the Vulcan® S motorcycle delivers potent power with ample low- to mid-range torque for an exhilarating ride.
  • SMOOTH & TORQUEY: The compact 649cc parallel-twin engine delivers smooth and responsive power. A light overall weight produces easy handling and exceptional performance for a confidence-inspiring experience.
  • FEEL EVERY RPM: Predictable roll-on power contributes to a confident riding experience as the revs climb, offering a spirited ride in the high-rpm range.
