Kawasaki Reveals Vulcan S ABS Cafe at AIMExpo

Byron Wilson | October 15, 2015

Kawasaki got up bright and early on the opening day of the AIMExpo in Orlando, Florida, to reveal some of its new motorcycles slated for the 2016 model year. At the top of the list is the previously announced ZX-10R, which received a significant overhaul that we outlined in this First Look review. Next came a Matrix Camo Grey edition of the workhorse KLR650, a blacked-out ZX-14R ABS SE which features Brembo brakes and stainless steel lines along with a new LCD dash. We also got a look at the new Z800 ABS followed by a café version of the company’s Vulcan S, a model which first debuted during last year’s Expo.

The Vulcan S ABS Café is primarily a BNG reveal, highlighted by a three-tone paint scheme on the tank and a dark-tinted windshield. Mechanically speaking though the Vulcan S ABS Café is the same machine as the standard version Vulcan S ABS.

Here are some photos from AIMExpo which display the new 2016 models.
