There's a scene in comedian Chris Rock's hip-hop mockumentary CB4 where the band retires to a soul-food restaurant known as Big-Ass Biscuit. The premise is that appetites have swollen to the point where only a biscuit the size of a man's head can satisfy customers. This reminds me of the Kawasaki Vulcan 2000 Classic, which is one big-ass motorcycle-large enough to dwarf even my 6'4" frame. Axle to axle, the Big Daddy of Kawasaki's cruiser line has a wheelbase measuring 68.3 inches and an overall weight of 838 pounds full of gas. At parking-lot speeds, its sheer dimensions are a handful to control, even with an accessible 26-inch height on the densely padded and very comfortable dual seat. On the move, fears of low-speed spills quickly dissipate as the Vulcan's engineering pedigree starts to reveal itself. The main course of this oversized beast is the peach of a V-twin engine, a throbbing, four-valve-per-cylinder, air/oil-cooled 125-cubic-incher (or 2053cc) with 103mm bore and 123.2mm stroke. A pair of twin counterbalancers quell much of the vibration that mars home-built stroker motors of these prodigious dimensions, while the king-sized Kawi's electronic fuel-injection system is as high-tech as its styling is nostalgic, Utilizing sub-throttle bodies for improved throttle response over last year's model, the injectors atomize fuel to create better combustion efficiency.
