Soon after introducing the Ninja H2 in India, Kawasaki plans to go on a product offensive in 2015. The Japanese manufacturer will finally enter the popular cruiser segment with the Vulcan S.

The Vulcan S will be priced in the range of Rs. 6 lakh, and will compete with the likes of Harley-Davidson Street 750. The Vulcan S will be brought to India via the CKD route.

Powering the Vulcan S is a 4-stroke, DOHC, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin petrol motor coupled with a 6-speed gearbox. Although the engine would sound similar to the Ninja 650, expect changes and more cruiser friendly engine response. Gearing will also be changed to make it a more effortless commuter on the highway as well as within the city.
