2008 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom
MSRP $7,349

A motorcycle should make its owner proud, whether cruising through town or simply parked at one of the many motorcycling hangouts throughout the country. With the Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom, riders get the seamless blend of comfort, big bike feel, and customized appearance.
The Vulcan 900 Custom is the crown jewel in Kawasaki’s mid-size cruiser family. This chrome-laden cruiser is more than just good looking. Like its 903cc siblings, the 900 Custom’s big-bike feel is generated by a powerplant that pulls cleanly around town and boasts exceptional roll-on acceleration that matches the get-up-and-go of much larger motorcycles.
