The Vulcan 750 is a high-powered bike that is characteristically smooth and feels like riding a much bigger-class motorcycle. This is great for beginner riders who want the thrills of riding a considerably-sized motorcycle without that over surge of power.
Its actual delivered rear-wheel horsepower is within the 50–55 hp range and is just a smidgen above what’s recommended for a beginner rider.
Acceleration-wise, the Vulcan 750 may not be as quick as a Ninja 500R but performs better off the line than typically-recommended 250-cc motorcycles.
Fuel mileage is a whopping 49–53 MPG (4.4–4.8 L/100 km, highway/city driving).
While advertised performance figures are already impressive, the Vulcan’s engine is underrated, actually producing 8-10% more than OEM claims in the dynamometer.
If you dig vintage aesthetics, the ’80s styling of the Kawasaki Vulcan 750 will grow on you.
