The upcoming 2018 Kawasaki Vulcan S features a laidback cruiser design with a low seat. The all-black cruiser features a blend of vintage and modern tech on board. The curvy tank, reflector based headlight, huge seat and the lack of windscreen add to the vintage part of the design. On the other hand, alloy wheels, monoshock on the rear, underbelly exhaust and sports bike derived diamond frame add to the modern appeal. Kawasaki aims at targeting a versatile customer base and these factors will help the company in selling the Vulcan S to anyone looking for either of the factors.
