Kawasaki Vulcan 800

Truly, Kawasaki Vulcan 800 is not so familiar, I can't found the Kawasaki Vulcan 800 motorcycles in Kawasaki official website today (2011), but we still can find it (Kawasaki Vulcan 800) in older version. Let see the old one, Kawasaki Vulcan 800 (2005 edition) comes with all standard cruiser motorcycles, yeah it's not so far with little one Kawasaki Vulcan 500 edition. Vulcan 800 comes with 805 cc of engine capacity, V2 engine, SOCH, 4-stroke, 5-speed transmission, liquid-cooled and also digital ignition. It's better than Vulcan 500 and good choice for next cruiser bike after 500 cc class.
