The Kawasaki Vulcan S was a cruiser motorcycle manufactured by Kawasaki since 2015. The bike was part of the Vulcan series that debuted in 1984 with the VN700A as their first cruiser motorcycle powered by their first V-twin engine.

The bike's engine and instruments were borrowed from the Kawasaki ER-6, while the engine was modified and packed a 30 percent larger flywheel and different camshafts, being limited to 10,000 rpm.

The 2015 motorcycle had standard features, such as a single headlight unit up front, a wide handlebar, a single seat with a low riding position, an under-belly-mounted exhaust system, and lightweight five double-spoke wheels.

The bike was built around a perimeter high tensile steel frame with a 41 mm telescopic fork on the front and an offset lay-down preload-adjustable shock absorber on the rear, delivering excellent suspension performance and handling.

In the braking department, the bike packed a 300 mm disc coupled to a dual-piston caliper on the front wheel and a 250 mm disc with a single-piston caliper on the rear wheel, offering excellent stopping power enhanced by an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS).

As for performance, the 2015 Kawasaki Vulcan S ABS had installed a 649cc four-stroke parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine underneath its fuel tank, delivering 61 hp with a peak force at 7,500 rpm and 63 Nm (47 lb-ft) torque at 6,600 rpm.
