Kawasaki Vulcan 900

Does this thing have any nuts? I can't imagine a 900cc cruiser having much power, but the 900 custom looks pretty slick. I'm a sucker for green bikes.

I've had my 800cc cruiser for about 3 years now and not complaining. Depends on the rider I guess...

I've had my Vulcan 800 Classic for years as well, and yes it does. It's got a lot of really nice mid-range power and can haul ass decently.

Want to buy mine? I'm looking to sell it...

I'll take it for a test ride I don't really like the other vulcan's, just the newer 900 custom (preferably a green 08)
