If you love riding, and you’re love of riding extends beyond high-revving fast and furious crotch rockets, then you will find something great in the simplicity of the 2010 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 line-up. All areas of interest are there: for those who love traditionally styled Motorbikes, the Classic is a great choice; for those who live on the highway and need a Motorbike that echoes those sentiments, the Classic LT fits the bill nicely; for those who love aggressive styling, big wheels, and a deep throaty sound, the Custom is king.
Regardless of which one you choose, the ride and experience tells the same story.
My Love Affair with the 2010 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom…
… began with a failed relationship, a broken evening, and tears streaming down my face. The bike was my one place of solitude, and it was a recent acquisition at that. I remember looking back on my first ride with sorrow, as I felt the experience tainted by the circumstances that surrounded that fateful evening.
I feel differently now. This Motorbike has brought out some qualities in me that I never would have even fathomed when I bought it: courage, pride, and most of all, joy. Riding this Motorbike is like your first kiss: the first twist of the throttle provides a rush that no other intoxication could ever match.
Its aggressive styling is mated to a 903cc v-twin that provides plenty of go-juice, while the bike itself remains intimate and responsive. You lean and the bike follows; you take a pothole and the bike forgives you. It’s the best relationship you’ll ever have, and all that it will ever ask in return is that you show it some love every now and again.
Reasons Why You Will Love the Vulcan Too
If the beautiful lines and tasteful chrome accents aren’t enough for you, the sound the twin-pipes bellow out under acceleration may be the finishing touch. If that’s not your forte, perhaps it’s the relaxed maintenance schedule, lightweight design, or comfortable rider and passenger positions.
For most, I suspect, it will be the sheer dynamic the Motorbike brings to the table. It feels safe and secure from the moment you hop on, and every time you find a tunnel you will find yourself blipping the throttle to hear the sweet symphony it sings- I dare you to try to resist the urge.
Ultimately, it’s in the ride that this bike truly shines. As beautiful as it is to look at, it is even more beautiful to pilot. In the end, that’s what motorcycling is all about: enjoying the world around you in a far more intimate way than a car (even an expensive sports car) would ever allow. If that’s not reason enough, hop on one and take it for a spin- you’ll find your own reason to fall in love with the Vulcan.
