Description

LOW SEAT HEIGHT AND FRIENDLY POWERBAND





The Kawasaki Vulcan® 500 LTD is a great, first-time buyer's bike for those who want to enter the cruiser lifestyle, because its low seat height, friendly powerband and affordability make it easy to develop those all-important riding skills.





The Vulcan 500 LTD gets its power from a 498cc parallel-twin, based on the same engine that powers the Ninja® 500R sportbike. Liquid cooling helps this cruiser maintain consistent operating temperatures for longer engine life and sustained power. The engine has also been tuned to deliver power as suited to boulevard cruising as it is to more spirited riding. The six-speed transmission, complete with Kawasaki's exclusive Positive Neutral Finder, allows riders to use the engine to its full potential.





Equally user-friendly is the chassis, which has a long and low steel frame that contributes to the 500 LTD's classic cruiser looks, and with a saddle that's just 28 inches from the ground, it puts just about any size rider at ease.





As for style, the Vulcan 500 LTD's nod to the custom

crowd includes a stepped seat, bobbed rear fender, tank-mounted speedometer and chrome-plated wire-spoke wheels. Admire it as is, or select enhancements from Kawasaki's Fire & Steel™
