    Well, there is the Suzuki Boulevard/Intruder, which is better than the Vulcan in every possible way.

    Better, maybe. But the 650 cc Vulcan S will definately be much more affordable as compared to Intruder (~6-7 L vs Rs 10L). And if the rumours are to be believed, 300cc Vulsan based on the current Ninja 300 can also see light in India!

    I have never ridden either one... therefore could you enlighten us, "better" in exactly what way?

    (just to improve my knowledge)

    A very nice job done!
    Just one suggestion - keep the video short(3-5 minutes) by merging and editing small clips.

    Oh God no. Please no. I have seen enough cruiser engine derived from sport bikes to see that how works. Look at all the avengers/eliminators. They dont have the character of a cruiser. Always buzzing about. Never quite settled.

    Isn't Kawasaki planning a Vulcan 2000? (assuming its still in production)

    The lesser cruisers just wont work. We all know what happened to the Intruder 800. The superlow and Iron just killed it. And making in India is not really feasible, as the numbers are just not there. So that rules out the Vulcan S, IMHO.

    The 900 would get raped day and night by the 883. And if you got to bring a 1700, why not go the whole hog and bring 2K. (The 1.7K doesn't have enough chrome anyway)

    I dont think the Vulcan S is one of the three being talked about. Dont see it happening. Even Autocar is doing guesswork. And if launched, dont see it selling anyway. Heck I wouldn't buy it over a superlow.

    Agree!! As a CKD unit, the Vulcan S will be priced in the Superlow bracket. That, for sure, will go in favor of HD.

    Plus, DOHC and a cruiser-ish engine profiling will call for more maintenance! Again, the Street 750 is a V-Twin with SOHC....for those who know, the choice will be simple!
