        Kawasaki’s popular middleweight cruiser receives a new variant in the US in the form of the Vulcan S Café. Despite what the name suggests, this bike is still very much a cruiser, complete with a low seat and relaxed ergonomics. What the café version does introduce is a new smoked headlight cowl, a passenger seat delete, and a new three-tone paint scheme called Ebony/Pearl Robotic White/Candy Steel Furnace Orange.

        The Vulcan S Café is mechanically the same from the standard model. At the heart of this beginner-friendly cruiser is a 649cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine pumping out 61.6hp at 7,500rpm and 64Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. This approachable twin is mated to a six-speed manual transmission and a chain final drive.

        The telescopic front fork and single rear shock have both been tuned to prioritize comfort, ease of handling, and natural feel. The rear shock is offset to allow for a more compact frame, and equipped with linkage to enable a longer stroke for better ride comfort. Preload adjustability can be found on the rear only, with seven positions to suit different rider sizes and payload weights.

        Sportbike-influenced wheels and tires contribute to the Vulcan’s lightweight feel and handling, while single discs front and rear bring the bike to a stop. The chassis also derives some inspiration from the Ninja, making for easy maneuvering and a sporty feel.

        One of the Vulcan S’s standout features is Kawasaki’s Ergo Fit system. Riders will be able to adjust the foot pegs, handlebars, and seat to more comfortably fit their frame. Brake and clutch levers are adjustable too, meaning riders with smaller or larger hands will have an easier time operating the motorcycle.
