What Is the Top Speed of the Vulcan 900 Custom?by Shannon Keen
The Vulcan 900 Custom is a 2010 model motorcycle produced by Kawasaki. It is one of a series of similar Kawasaki motorcycles, all of which bear the moniker "Vulcan." The newest model is the 2011 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic SE.
"Top speed" is defined as the fasted speed a vehicle is capable of reaching without assistance. The top speed of the Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom has been recorded as 99.42 mph, according to Mbike.com.
Vulcan 900 Custom motorcycles are categorized as cruisers. Cruisers, much like choppers, are recognizable due to the position of the hands and feet. The feet are positioned forward on the bike and the hands rest high on the frame.
Due to its cruiser design, the Vulcan 900 Custom offers greater comfort when riding at lower speeds. Sitting unsupported for extended periods at freeway speeds can make riding a Vulcan tiring, especially when compared to travel on a sport bike.
