2015 Kawasaki Vulcan S Extended Reach Motorcycle Review

2015 Kawasaki Vulcan S Extended Reach Motorcycle Review
I had been wanting to try this guy out since seeing the introduction last year, excited to see how the new tech and design would feel on the road. It was another good example of how paper stats don’t always translate to what you might expect on a ride, so always test ride before buying. Overall, it has potential. Certainly the variable dimentioning parts do a wonderful job, covering small to tall riders very well. It had some minor issues that I’m sure will be addressed in an upcoming version but no big deal breakers if you are looking for a sporty naked cruiser, whatever that is 😉

  1. hi, i am 5 foot 8′” ands 170 pounds. do you think i will suffer with that rear suspension issue with this bike?

  2. I went trough some videos and mainly they recommend to get  Yamaha R3 or Honda CBR300 for very first time rider. Would you recommend this or Vulcan 2016 for first time rider? tnx

  3. Very informative for people curious about bikes, so far Vulcan is my favorite style looking bike but I’m thinking I want something smaller to learn on and something that maybe is easier to tell when you shift.

  4. All the controls and gear lever and brake are adjustable i have the Vulcan s and my shifter is a lot lower than i see in these youtube videos its comfortable .

  5. Not trying to be a troll but isn’t the Vulcan actually truly the entry level cruiser? It’s the cheapest one they sell….$7000 for a 2017 non-abs….

  6. “this is a little brother of an Indian Scout” i love that sentences, thank you very much for this review, now i`m going for a Vulcan S. Greetings.

  7. good review !!!! not sure if I want one our not !!!! good my heart set on a triumph speed master !!!!!

  8. Did your bike have the special seat you get if you choose the “tall” fitting? I was really looking forward on a comfortable seat

  9. They whent from a beautifull bike to… this. I hate the new vulcan look. It’s not a cruiser anymore.
