Features

Comfort & Ergonomics

  • CRUISE IN COMFORT: Whether you’re going for a short ride around the city or touring down the highway, do it all in comfort with the Vulcan® 900 motorcycle.
  • EASY RIDER: Low seat height adds to rider confidence by enabling both feet to be placed on the ground at stops while rider floorboards with heel/toe shifter enhance rider comfort.

Engine Management Technology

  • DUAL THROTTLE VALVES: Late-model sport bikes often use large-bore throttle bodies to generate high levels of power. However, with large diameter throttles, when a rider suddenly opens the throttle, the unrestricted torque response can be strong. Dual throttle valve technology was designed to tame engine response while contributing to performance. On models with dual throttle valves, there are two throttle valves per cylinder: in addition to the main valves, which are physically linked to the throttle grip and controlled by the rider, a second set of valves, opened and closed by the ECU, precisely regulates intake airflow to ensure a natural, linear response. With the air passing through the throttle bodies becoming smoother, combustion efficiency is improved and power is increased.

Other Features

  • Wide drag bars and forward-mounted footpegs, low center of gravity for easy handling, custom styling with teardrop tank, parallel slash cut pipes.

Performance

  • SMOOTH RIDER: Ride out loud with bold performance bolstered by unapologetic Vulcan® attitude.
  • CONVENIENT & STYLISH: Tank-mounted instrumentation on a class-leading 5.3-gallon fuel tank keeps useful information visible at a glance.
  • WIDEST IN CLASS: For superb traction and bold style, the 180mm rear tire is the widest in its class.

Power

  • MUSCLE FOR THE ROAD: Bold muscle comes thanks to V-twin power that is sure to command any road.
  • POTENT V-TWIN: A fuel-injected 903cc V-twin engine delivers ample roll-on power and excellent fuel economy.
