4. Kawasaki Vulcan 900 LT

Kawasaki Vulcan 900 LT

For the cruiser set, the Kawasaki Vulcan 900 delivers a nice mix of power, comfort and maneuverability in a package that’s not too hard to manage in the city. And, with the LT version, some stowage capacity and wind protection. Its 903cc V-Twin is plenty capable of tugging along on the freeway, while the bags are more than enough to carry the things you need for the daily grind.

Sure it sounds weird to combine cruiser and maneuverability in the same sentence, but if the previous sporty bikes aren’t your thing, any of the three bikes in the Vulcan 900 lineup will handle themselves well in an urban environment.
