Hi Everyone,

Just sold my Vulcan 1500A13 and bought the new bad boy on the block (Vulcan 2000). Has anyone else had the chance to ride this great bike?

welcome

welcome to the board nelson :wink: glad to have another vulcan rider in here :D
i rode the behemoth a few weeks ago and its alot of scoot :lol:
i just wish they would have sold it as a fully dressed (bags,shield,etc) bike-it would be
badd a$$-would've made more sense to me instead of a stripped cruiser
i loved the ride and slow speed tricks really were not that bad :wink:

congrats on the scoot - stick around and tell us how it performs :D

re

i rode a 2000 for just a hour or so and this is what i noticed:

huge!,awful heavy,good power,smooth shift,200 back tire,decent seat

rectifier in bad place down low on bottom of frame behind front wheel,clutch pivot into tranny in a goofy position and not very beefy,footboards are wiggly,scrapes in a hard turn

overall from a 1 hour ride,its just too much bike for me-i'm sure alot of folks will like it though
i still say it should've been a fully dressed upgrade from the nomad insted of a stripped cruiser-seem kawi was trying to give some harley qualitys to this bike with the separate tranny,belt drive :roll: , the nomad and the 1600's are still the best values and performers in the herd in my humble and worthless opinion :lol:

I guess this is why they make all different kinds of bikes. If this would have been a fully dressed I wouldn't have looked twice at it. Just stripped down the bike and took it to paint. I am also having the back finder completely filled in, should look pretty trick when it's finished
