Ah it's like the infant brother of my current ride! I would romp the hell out of that thing.

What do you do when you want the same bike over a period of days and weeks?



Well, I guess you should just buy it, right?


Planning to do just that with this one in a couple of days...

That bike totally does nothing for me, nor do any cruisers.

I completly agree, but I've ridden the Venox and it's an amazing bike.
I liked it better then the Yamaha Dragstar 650, and I also couldn't care
less about cruisers in general.

Vulcan 900 SE

Stopped by the metric dealer today in AsheVegas to kill some time and saw one of these.
I've NEVER been a guy who liked the white walls and big fenders, and I've found almost all of Kawi's cruisers over the last 20 years to be like a Japanese guy telling what an American bike is like to a bunch of other Japanese guys.
But, this bike is really nice in person. The checkerboard stripe where the paint colors meet on the tank is a nice touch. It's no Harley 72, but it looks like Kawi is trying harder.
Vulcan 900 SE


Seriously, I don't like whitewall cruisers with big fenders, but I could put some miles on this thing.

Nice bike and I think they did a lot right but, it just left me flat, and I HATED the engine sounds.

Nope, my 1150GS has nothing to fear....

Buells are pretty cool. They are collectors items now though. There won't be many around down the road....

I have dreamed of this in my garage since it came out, I might be 60 before i get one, but I'm hopeful
(oh, 60- only 4 to go )
