Kawasaki Vulcan S free luggage

Kawasaki Motor Australia is throwing in free luggage worth $1730 when you buy one of their learner-approved Vulcan S cruisers to turn it into a dedicate tourer.

The light touring kit is available for a limited time and features the mounting hardware, a rear luggage rack and saddlebags.Kawasaki Vulcan S free luggage

Fitting is not included, but it looks pretty easy to fit and you can probably negotiate that with your dealer.

Check out this video that explains the offer and what’s included.

We road-tested a Vulcan S a couple of years ago and were supremely impressed with how well it rode.

Check out our review video below.

For a learner bike, it didn’t feel small, even for my 6’1″ frame.

Yet with its low seat height, it suits a wide variety of sizes.

In fact, you can even adjust the riding position further to suit your size and riding style.

They refer to this adjustment as Ergo-Fit.

You can buy easy-reach handlebars ($89) that shorten the reach by 44mm, comfort seats ($334.99) that shorten or lengthen the distance from the bars by 53mm and shift linkage rods that move the footpegs forward or back by 25mm. The clutch and brake levers are also adjustable for reach.

It’s also great value and is still priced at $9999 plus on-road costs.

  1. Why limit your market by using “real” leather on the inside of the bags? Cruelty free is a growing market.

    1. Leather is organic. Organic is good.

      Cattle are raised for meat, not leather. Leather is a byproduct of meat production.
      Banning leather won’t change number of cattle raised for meat production but
      it will waste a valuable organic product &
      leatherworkers in third world countries will lose their jobs.
      Starving families.

      Cattle produce methane, which is one of the most potent greenhouse gases in Earth’s atmosphere.
      It traps 28 times more heat per mass unit than carbon dioxide
      so slaughtering animals for beef & leather is environmentally friendly,
      which is why all seriously committed environmentalists eat meat pies while wearing leather jackets & boots.

      Leather’s still the best protective material for bike gear, not pumpkin skins, I’m still experimenting with those.
      Banning leather will increase the number of severe injuries from motorcycle accidents.
      That’s what I’d call cruelty.

      do you go around barefoot, esp when riding a motorcycle – that gear lever must hurt
      wear synthetics made from environmentally destructive petrochemicals
      or just go naked?

      1. The leather is inside the bag so has nothing to do with protection. And I am very happy with my cruelty free gear which gives me full protection. If you bothered to look around you would see there are many alternatives that work quite nicely.

        1. Wear whatever you like, motorcycling’s very individual, but leather’s the best protection no doubt about that & everything else is second-best. Doesn’t stop me wearing jeans.

  2. My husband and I searched and searched for my 1st bike. He didn’t want a passenger and I’m just ornery enough I like to “do my own thing” as well. I’d had a goal to get one before I turned 50 anyway! I took the class, got my endorsement, got my helmet, jacket, boots, the works! I must admit I love his Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom but it’s just a smidgen heavier than I wanted so the search began.

    After about a year and a half of searching and trying out countless motorcycles of all brands (new/old/no longer manufactured – you name it) I found the perfect motorcycle for me. The Kawasaki Vulcan S 650! It was love from the first time I sat astride. I hadn’t even started the beauty up at this point. We couldn’t quite make the stretch for a brand new off the showroom floor model but we did find a White 2015 model at our local Kawasaki Dealer. While I couldn’t believe I got a WHITE motorcycle – I AM IN LOVE – my husband finally has competition – MY KAWASAKI 650 S!!

    I am SUPER bummed. I have been searching around and found a few bags that won’t quite work on my bike but in the process just came across this link in a search.

    I think these bags are awesome and would be perfect so my husband can quit carrying my “stuff” but sadly it looks like I got my 1st bike a little too late for this promotion. If you ever have a special deal for true blue Kawasaki fans – hit me up! In the meantime I am on the search and hope to find a good solid pair of leather saddle bags before the upcoming season.
