Blame (or praise) Honda and its Rune if you wish, but big, BIG cruisers seem to be en vogue these days. Triumph recently stepped into the house with its beast monster 2300cc Rocket III, and Kawasaki's right behind the boys from Brinkley with the new-for-'04 Vulcan 2000. That's right, this big [italics!] new Vulcan gets it get-up from a 2053cc 52-degree V-twin - or to put in a different light, a 125-cubic incher in which lives a pair of thumping 103mm pistons. With these numbers, the Vulcan's mill is - for the time being at least - the largest mass-produced V-twin in all the lands.
