It’s long been known that when beginning riders want to approach the cruiser style, Kawasaki offers a greatly balanced package under the Vulcan 500 LTD model name. For the 2009 model, at least things haven’t changed as the bike carries on with a simple color scheme change that refreshes the overall look, helps the low seat stand out and corresponds with the attractive engine performance. The unbeatable combination behind the smallest Vulcan is achieved by a user friendly chassis and sportbike engine heritage. As a rider, you feel well at home on the low and comfy seat and the handlebars are at quick reach so it’s clear that Kawi built this thing around the rider, but what’s best about the chassis is how it ensures light handling as the 471.9 lbs wet weight seems to disappear as speed increases. Powered by a 498cc, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, DOHC, eight-valve parallel twin engine, like the one on the Ninja 500R, the small cruiser is very lively so it competes with much more recent entry level alternatives and also manages to deal with four-wheeled traffic participants without any problems whatsoever. You get a sharp front fender curved around a 19-inch front wheel, quick-grab handlebars and a one-piece seat so it’s a good thing to start considering from the very first time you lay your eyes on the bike. It would be so easy looking at it like at a standard motorcycle simply because there isn’t a V-twin engine contradicting us. Still, the teardrop tank with the speedometer, turn signal indicators and caution lamps being mounted on it compensates for the engine configuration not being the right one for this kind of bike. So is the 28.1 inches seat, the straight-flow exhaust and the custom rear fender and taillight. The passenger also gets a decently sized portion of the seat and the spoked rear wheel features a 140mm wide rear tire. This bike is fully stock and is in great condition. The only blemish would be a dent on the right side of the tank. Other than that you will have an excellent cruiser for that daily commute or weekend run. Like all our bikes, this will be fully serviced, inspected and detailed at the time you take delivery.
