Although they all ride on the same 900cc V-twin platform, Kawasaki’s three Vulcan 900 models are different enough that we split the two Classics, which share the same styling, from the Custom model. The base Vulcan 900 Classic is just what it sounds like—a traditionally styled cruiser powered by a 903cc, liquid-cooled engine. The 900 Classic and Classic LT models ride on the same foundation, equipped with rider floorboards with a heel/toe shifter, tank-mounted instrumentation, and a 180mm rear tire. The touring-biased Vulcan 900 Classic LT ladles touring amenities onto the Classic base, like a studded touring seat with a standard passenger backrest, leather saddlebags, and a height-adjustable windscreen. There’s just a five-speed transmission, single disc brakes front and rear, and no ABS, so with both Classics you get pure, uncluttered cruising at its most basic, and at quite a bargain to boot.
