So... I'm one of those people who watch for updates this time of year. I'm a huge Kawi fan, but sometimes they truly confound me. The US sites had a head start with the new Versys models (the 650 is getting a much larger tank), but now the picture is becoming more complete (see Kawasaki.ca). The venerable KLR650 has some small bodywork updates, most models are just getting a color change (and maybe an engine remap), but then we come to the brand new Vulcan S. If the V-Rod and the Bolt had a love child, this is what it would look like. I still don't know what to make of it... Kawi was missing a lower end cruiser, so I guess this was meant to go head to head with the V-Star. Interesting that is still retains the chain drive. Still waiting for confirmation from KTM on the coming 2015 models...
