2006 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic
MSRP $7,299

Cruising motorcycle enthusiasts, whether experienced or new to the fold, find themselves seeking that perfect combination of power, torque, styling, and comfort. For those just joining the mid-size cruising “family” prior choices have been short on many attributes that signify the rider’s perception of “why” they found motorcycles so appealing. And, for the experienced “big bike” riders, the inclination to seek a better balanced mid-size with the look and feel of the larger V-twins hasn’t been an option. Kawasaki evens the playing field for 2006, with the introduction of the Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic, a motorcycle that will find a quick home with both of these groups.
