KAWASAKI’S VULCAN® 900 CLASSIC BRINGS BIG BIKE STYLE TO THE MID-SIZE CLASS
The Kawasaki Vulcan® 900 Classic LT motorcycle takes the class-leading attributes of its Vulcan 900 Classic sibling and ups the ante with additional custom touring features and enhanced style. Kawasaki accessorizes the Vulcan 900 LT with saddlebags, a special seat, passenger backrest and an adjustable windshield. The only add-on that doesn’t show-up on the showroom hang-tag is the riding enjoyment that this new Vulcan addition will provide its owners.
This mid-size entry from Kawasaki not only delivers the same excellent riding characteristics as the Vulcan 900 Classic –featuring a category-leading 903cc engine displacement combined with “big-bike” look and feel– but does it with eye-catching features for riders that think touring represents the ultimate get-away.
The stylish saddlebags are made of reinforced top grain cowhide that has been carefully selected to minimize leather flaws and deep-dyed so the finish can’t be scraped off. These perfectly sized bags provide a slant-top opening, fastened with two 1.5-inch wide leather straps that feature chrome buckles and quick release stealth fasteners. Rounding out the look of these bags is an embossed Vulcan logo on the reinforced, dual panel lids, and chrome plated brass stud accents. Helping to protect both the bags and their contents are metal reinforced upper edges to help maintain shape, and rolled and riveted top lids to help keep unwanted moisture out.
The rider’s seat and passenger backrest combine to offer both comfort and a look that allows the Classic LT to take its place among the most stylish motorcycles on the highway. The seat is detailed with chrome plated brass studs to match the bags, while the classic, tombstone-shaped passenger backrest sports identical studding. In addition to comfortable seating, this long, low cruiser offers some serious wind protection; thick, optically correct acrylic plastic is used in a windscreen that’s shaped to smooth airflow around the rider.
