Vulcan® 900 Classic



The name may be Vulcan® 900 Classic, but you should hear “definitive.” This midsized cruiser has the timeless goods wrapped in a long, low package with a presence that’s larger than its name. From its two-tone ebony and metallic gray paint scheme to its spoked wheels, this Vulcan garners attention wherever it goes. Details, like rider floorboards and tank-mounted instrumentation that includes a handy fuel gauge and an easy-to-read analog speedometer, only strengthen the bike’s ties with tradition.

Key Features

• 903cc V-twin provides an optimal balance of performance and manageability in a stylish package

• Digital fuel injection delivers precise throttle control with improved fuel economy

• NEW seat features improved lumbar support for the rider and a wider and longer rear section for passenger comfort

• Rider floorboards with heel and toe shifter enhance rider comfort and deliver a stronger connection to the motorcycle

• Class-leading 5.3-gallon fuel tank

• Classically styled tank-mounted instrumentation includes fuel gauge

• Fat 180-series rear tire is widest in class and aids in the big bike feel

• Efficient belt drive runs cleaner and with less maintenance than a chain while adding to the timeless style of the drive train

903cc V-twin

• Tuned to deliver a healthy dose of torque at low rpm

• Smooth and reliable

• Gear-driven balancer allows use of single pin crankshaft without excessive vibration

Four-valve Cylinder Head

• Provides maximum valve area for optimum flow, resulting in more power and more low-end torque

• Single overhead cam design is simple, lightweight and practical

• Extremely efficient intake tracts feature ports that narrow near the combustion chamber to increase intake flow speed for more efficient filling and increased torque

• Long intake tracts for great low-end response

Liquid and Air Cooling

• Exceptional thermal control with finned cylinders and cylinder head, combined with liquid cooling

• Maintains consistent engine temperatures for long engine life and sustained power

• Automatic fan keeps things cool even in traffic

• Includes temperature warning light

Dual Slash-cut Mufflers

• Big slash-cut mufflers look great and contain honeycomb catalyzers to reduce emissions

Positive Neutral Finder

• Just lift the shift pedal from first gear at a stop to easily find neutral, every time

Electronic Fuel Injection

• Dual throttle bodies with sub-throttles provide optimum performance and rideability

• The sub-throttles, located behind the main throttle valve, are controlled by the ECU so that the DFI® system retains more precise throttle response, similar to a constant velocity carburetor

• Fine-atomizing injectors produce a fine fuel mist for better acceleration, combustion and fuel consumption

Kevlar-Reinforced Belt Drive

• Lower unsprung weight than shaft drive to improve ride quality and suspension action

• More efficient so more power reaches the rear wheel compared to shaft drive

• Cleaner and lower maintenance than chain drive

Double Cradle Frame

• Very rigid large-diameter box section backbone allows a larger fuel tank, and helps contribute to lightweight handling at low speeds

• Triangular swingarm looks like a hardtail design, but acts on a single shock hidden beneath the seat

• Long and low for minimal seat height and maximum visual impact

• Fork offset and frame geometry combine for light, low-effort handling at ultra-low speeds

• Long wheelbase contributes to a comfortable highway ride

Comfort Features

• NEW seat features improved lumbar support for the rider and a wider and longer rear section for passenger comfort

• Ultra-low 26.8-inch seat height allows riders to easily plant both feet on the ground at stops

• Laid-back riding comfort for two

Tank-mounted Speedometer with Turn Signal Indicators and Caution Lamps

• Gives you the information you need at a glance

• Compact design complements the bike’s clean look

• 5.3-gallon fuel tank is largest in its class

41mm Front Fork

• Excellent rigidity and 5.9-inches of travel – the most in its class

• 32-degree rake angle for excellent straight line tracking

• Wide fork pitch for classic look

Front and Rear Disc Brakes

• The 300mm front and 270mm rear brake rotors are gripped by twin-piston calipers for some of the best stopping power in the class

Custom Spoke Wheels

• Chromed steel rims and spokes

• “Spool-style” polished aluminum front hub

Wide Rear Tire

• 180mm rear tire provides added traction while projecting a powerful image

• Wider tire than that found on most large-displacement cruisers
