Kawasaki Vulcan VN1500
Since 1984, Kawasaki has used the Vulcan moniker for its custom or cruiser bikes, model designation VN, with predominantly V-twin engines ranging from 125 to 2,053 cc (7.6 to 125.3 cu in).
1987–2008: Vulcan 1500 series
The engine of the Vulcan 1500 Classic is a 1,470 cc (90 cu in) liquid-cooled SOHC 50° V-twin with a single-pin crankshaft. It features a seat height of 27.6 inches (700 mm), a large handlebar, and forward-mounted floorboards.
The Vulcan 1500 Drifter was discontinued in 2005. The Vulcan 88, with its 1464 cc liquid-cooled V-twin engine, was manufactured from 1987 until 1999. A four-speed transmission was combined with the “huge for its time engine,” resulting in a big-bore metric cruiser that was comfortable and reasonably light-weight at little over 600 lbs when “riding ready.”
