2009 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom Review: Real Nice to Ride.

Motorcycle: 
Year: 
2009
Color: 
Blue
Review Summary: 

The VN900C is a Great Bike to Ride - Doesn't do anything Brilliant - BUT Doesn't do anything Bad Either - Just a Good Soild Bike to Ride - Great Mid Sized Cruiser - and Affordable !!!

Best Features: 
Sweet 903cc V-Twin Engine
Improvements: 
The Rear Fender just doesn't belong on a Cruiser !!!
Compares to: 
I have owned 37 bikes over many years riding and the VN900C is a lot better than most of the bikes or equal to them - that I have owned and ridden. (And that includes 4 Harley Davidsons (2 Shovelheads & 2 Evo's) - It may not be a good as the FLHTC Electraglide Classic Full Dress Harley but for a Naked Cruiser the VN900C rates highly in my book ... - If you are looking for a good mid sized cruiser motorcycle then the VN900C IS a Contender ....
