2020 Kawasaki Brute Force 750 Best ever review…

I’m going to do a review of the 2020 Kawasaki Brute Force. 

Hi there. My name is Seth Van Horn, from Jim Gilbert’s Wheels and Deals.

The aggressive stance of the Brute Force

Let’s start at the front of the ATV, where we can see the aggressive stance of the Brute Force, which boasts nine and a half inches of ground clearance.   The front independent double wishbone suspension with adjustable preload offers over six and a half inches of travel to eat up anything your trail has to throw at it

2020 Kawasaki Brute Force 750

As we move up, we find something some manufacturers are forgetting about these days and we see a solid steel front cargo rack that holds up to 88 pounds of gear. Kawasaki knows how important it is for the rider to be able to carry all their gear on their back road adventures, and ensures you have the capability to bring everything.

When we move to the right side of the bike, we can see the out of the way ignition and gear selector, equipped with high-range, low-range, and reverse.

The blacked-out clutch cover hides the super dependable compact CVT transmission. This automatic transmission is equipped with Kawasaki engine braking, to give riders confidence in descending steep declines, and offers big responsive power in all forward and reverse gears.

The easy-to-access fuel filler cap leads you to the huge 19-liter fuel tank, which means you are free to ride your Brute Force all day long without worrying if you’re going to run out.

At the back of the Brute Force, we see another solid steel cargo rack, capable of holding a staggering 176 pounds of cargo, just in case the front rack wasn’t enough. The independent double wishbone rear suspension has adjustable preload, and has a whopping seven and a half inches of travel so you know your ride is going to be smooth no matter what the trail throws at you. Under these beefy springs and a-arm, we see the industry-leading sealed multi-disc rear braking system exclusive to Kawasaki.

This system is virtually maintenance-free, and makes sure you always have stopping power in any conditions regardless of ice, snow, mud, and water. Under the seat, we can get a look at the easy-to-access battery compartment, the air breather box, and the clutch exhaust, all way up in the air to make sure everything stays high and dry.  Saving the best for last, let’s have a look at the controls and digital read-out of the Brute Force. This ATV has selectable two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive, and a unique on-demand variable differential lock, so you can control how much torque is delivered to the front wheels.

The digital readout has speedometer, odometer, trip meter, fuel gauge, engine temperature, clock and hour meter, indicator lamps for neutral, reverse gear, two-wheel drive, four-wheel drive, a belt indicator, and oil warnings. If all of this isn’t enough and you want additional comfort, you can choose the EPS or Electronic Power Steering models. It has all the same features, with the addition and comfort of all day long, one-hand steering capabilities. The 2020 Kawasaki Brute Force is backed by a full one-year Kawasaki Strong warranty, and coupled with the beastly fuel injected 750 CC motor, and wear-resistant nylon bushings, you can be assured you have a low-maintenance ATV capable of tackling any terrain or adventure you can think of.

Vespa… why we became a Vespa dealer!

Blame it on

Blame it on The Big Bang – Blame it on Howard – Blame it on Travel – Blame it on Italy…. but Vespa Wheels and Deals is happening and Chelsea Davis and Team Huggable excited to bring you more environment friendly choices….

Blame it on the Big Bang

Blame it on the Big Bang .. Every time Howard Wolowitz rides his scooter on an episode of The Big Bang Theory.. Dawna Gilbert … Chelsea’s mother grins and smiles.. and says I would love to have a Pink Vespa… who can forget Sheldon hanging on for dear life… lol 

the big bang theory

BLAME IT ON TRAVEL ITALIANS LOVE THEIR  GAS MIZING WASP’S.

 In Italy, we saw Vespa scooters  everywhere.. they are the #1 mode of transportation for just about every city dweller all through Europe.

Here they buzz there they buzz every where Vespa is buzzing around. 

Wheels and Deals Vespa Fredericton
Wheels and Deals Vespa Fredericton

Maybe because….  they are easy to park and easy on fuel. A Vespa gets between 110 and 160 kilometres per gallon, that’s like 2.3700 litres/100km. As a bonus, Vespa’s fuel economy also helps the environment. 


Can you imagine the gas savings. This along will pay for your new toy.. 

A litre not bought is a a lot of tax savings.. lol…. 

Robbie loves passing by the gas pumps..

Wheels and Deals Vespa at Italian gas station
Wheels and Deals Vespa fun

Or maybe it’s the fun factor…In addition to being eco-friendly, relatively inexpensive and requiring fewer trips to the pump, Vespas also have a fun factor that intrigues their owners. It is just lots of fun zipping around the streets of Fredericton and the back roads of New Brunswick.

Why not become a Vespa family…
make day trips… fun trips…

Or maybe its just because your 14 year old daughter or son can get out and about. Yes, they can drive their scooters on the streets and roads of New Brunswick. 
Vespa  news… responsible young adults that can get mobile sooner…. love to get part time jobs and pay for their own way.  Plus it makes getting to practice a Buzz..

Robbie Hatheway on his Wheels and Deals Vespa
Vespa Fredericton

But Vespa is not just for the young, the young at heart love them too.

Here is what the Zimmermans have to say… “We’ve ridden scooters for five years now and just love it,” Peggy said

Vespa Fredericton New Brunswick

“Both in their sixties, the Zimmermans are retired, although Dennis still works part-time at Enterprise car rental and often rides his Vespa to work. Peggy uses her scooter for small errands and the two frequently take weekend rides around town.

“BUT WE JUST SMILE.

“We definitely get looks because here we are, two older folks on Vespas,” she said. “But we just smile. We get a lot of questions too, about the gas mileage and price mostly. That tells me people are interested, and the popularity will just keep growing.” 

www.wheelsanddeals.ca

Italian for “wasp,” the Vespa is named for the buzzing sound it makes when cruising along city streets. Despite the economy, or perhaps because of it, that buzzing is being heard more and more often.

 

IN A SMALL PENNSYLVANIA TOWN A YOUNG GUY BOUGHT A LITTLE 49CC SCOOTER. A LOT OF PEOPLE THOUGHT HE WAS A BIT STRANGE, INCLUDING MYSELF. WE WERE SAYING, WHY DOESN’T HE GET HIMSELF A REAL BIKE. AT THE TIME HE WAS THE ONLY SCOOTER RIDER IN TOWN. ONE DAY HE LET ME RIDE IT, AND I WAS HOOKED. NOW THERE ARE 8 OF US SCOOTER RIDERS. ALL OF US WITH THE SAME 49CC SCOOTER. A SCOOTER IS SOOOOO MUCH FUN. I MEAN, I STILL HAVE MY FAT BOY AND V-MAX, AND THEY ARE FUN TOO. BUT AROUND TOWN? A SCOOTER IS SO MUCH EASIER. GOING BAR HOPPING IS AWESOME. IF I NEED TO GET ON THE INTERSTATE, THEN I BREAK OUT THE HARLEY OR MR. MAX. BUT, AROUND TOWN, IT’S THE SCOOTER. LIKE I SAID, RIDE ONE AND YOU WILL BE HOOKED.

Wheeling is in my blood…

At the age of 32 I still remember the feeling I got when I was 7 and my dad brought home our brand new four wheeler. As he backed in the dark driveway I stood in the garage with the feeling of pure joy and excitement

Whether its a day out with the kids or an adult only adventure through the muddy terrain, the new 2020 Brute Force 4×4 is the perfect wheeler for the job.

As a kid I loved going  wheeling with my family and as I got older would venture out with friends. We were always eager to hit the trails and see where the day would take us. I remember heading to hunting camp with my dad, so small I could not even reach the shifter but he still let me drive. The Brute Force is automatic so no need to worry about shifting even thought my legs are plenty long enough now.

Wheeling has become tradition. We have many big runs every year and all our family and friends love coming out. The Brute Force can be accessorized with a back seat and foot pegs for your significant other or your best buddy to come along for the ride.

Whether its a stag party with the boys…….

or and evening stroll with the new sister in law…….

……..the new 2020 Brute Force 4×4 is the wheeler for you, come see us at Jim Gilberts Wheels and Deals to test drive one today!

What to consider before buying a boat –

Boats in Fredericton | Blog | Wheels & Deals

What size boat do you need?

There are different factors to think about when deciding on how big you’d like your boat to be. This includes:

New Brunswick is, overall, a great place for boat owners and Fredericton is no exception. Have you considered purchasing a small boat of your own? If you’ve been fantasizing about being able to set sail whenever you like, you may be ready to buy a boat. Here are some things to consider before purchasing your own pleasure craft.

What size boat do you need?

There are different factors to think about when deciding on how big you’d like your boat to be. This includes:

·       Where you’ll use it. A boat that stays on a lake or river tends to be smaller than one used to take long sea voyages.

·       How long you’ll be aboard. Will you be using your boat for short pleasure rides or are you looking for something that you can live on for extended periods of time?

·       The number of people aboard. If you plan on taking intimate fishing trips, a small boat will suit your purposes. However, if you like to socialize, you’ll value a large deck for throwing parties.

Where you’ll store it

Some people choose to permanently dock their boats at a marina. Others prefer to tow theirs on a trailer. The latter option has the added advantage of allowing you to tow your boat to different waterways around the province and country.

If you don’t dock your boat at a marina, you’ll also need to think about where it’ll go during the winter. Is your garage at home big enough or do you need to rent a storage space?

Your budget

The cost of your boat doesn’t end at the purchase price. There are many additional expenses involved with boat ownership including:

·       Insurance

·       Safety equipment

·       Optional but fun accessories

·       Maintenance and repairs

·       Storage costs

·       Gas prices

Since these expenses vary from boat to boat, make sure you research the costs involved.

Do you need a licence?

All boaters in Canada, no matter their age or level of experience, are required to have a boating licence also called a Pleasure Craft Operator Card. Keep this and a photo identification card with you at all times while piloting your boat. If you’re caught without it, you can be fined $250.

Buying a boat in Fredericton

Buying a boat from a car dealer like Jim Gilbert’s Wheels and Deals ensures that you’ll get a vessel that meets your needs. Stop by our Fredericton dealership today to see our selection of boats.

RIVER VALLEY ATV CLUB #50

Incorporated on August 10, 1994 and is a member of the New Brunswick All Terrain Vehicle Federation.

COME JOIN US ON OUR TRAILS!!!!!!

  The River Valley ATV Club was originally formed in the spring of 1993 after a group of local atv enthusiasts gathered to share information of the trails in the area being used by atver’s. The meeting was held at the original Kinsmen Center in Jacksonville and led to the formation of  The River Valley ATV Club.

Our motto is to “promote recreational activities of two, three and four wheel type ATV’s”

Situated in Zone 7 of the federation in the beautiful St. John River Valley, Carleton County. It is a non profit organization. Our trails offer a wide range of scenery from streams, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, covered bridges, forest, open fields, wildlife and wildflowers. Our club connects with neighbouring  atv clubs.

     River Valley ATV Club promotes itself by taking part in 2 area summer parades-Woodstock Old Home Week Parade and Debec Day parade. For the past 3 years the club has set up an information booth at the Spring Women’s Show at the Ayer Motor Center. We also use the club’s facebook page to promote activities not just for River Valley ATV Club but other clubs in the province.

The Crestliner Advantage

Experience the strongest, most durable pontoon boats on the water today… For over seven decades, Crestliner has pushed the limits of possibility with every new model. Through each passing year our craftsmen have shaped more than the toughest all-welded aluminum pontoons on the water—they’ve shaped your time on the water.

Crestliner Rally pontoons features the style and craftsmanship of a typical Crestliner with all the benefits of a pontoon boat. Rally is purpose-built using top-of-the-line materials and advanced construction methods. Reinforced tubes welded together create a bond, torsion control riser brackets absorb impact, and the crossmember system gives the Rally support from the deck up.

240 Rally DX  Sport Graphic

“The Rally and Rally DX represent a return to glory for Crestliner,” And when this line up was introduced in 2017  there was only one thing mandatory – that the all new Rally line-up pontoons be unmistakably Crestliner. Durable, stylish and can accommodate your passion.”

One of the best things about pontoon boats like the new Crestliner 24 Rally DX is that you can have a huge crew of friends and family aboard, and there’s a comfortable spot for everyone….. 

Crestliner Pontoon

The CS (Cruise) provides deck seating thanks to an intuitive layout that makes the most of its deck space; 

Pontoon boat seating

And everyone can kick back in a puffy, luxurious “pillow-top” seat or a bucket-style armchair seat. Now add in a pontoon boat’s natural stability, copious stowage, a big standard Bimini top, and a changing room with a head. 


200 Rally CS featuring chaise lounge furniture (CS) – a three-seater on each side at the bow plus an L-shaped with table on the port stern side complete with sunpad, storage and space for an optional change room. Centre bow, port and starboard side entry gates are provided plus a stern entry gate aft of the helm station. Lots of Pontoons … Lots of options.. 

THE RALLY IS EQUALLY PERFECT FOR FAMILY FUN OR RELAXING AS IT IS FOR A DAY OF FISHING WITH YOUR BUDDIES.

2019 Kawasaki Z 400 aggressive nose-down/tail-up ‘sugomi’ inspired style

 shows its common DNA with the rest of the naked “Z” line.The Z400 shows its Huggable Kawi-ness through minimal body coverings that leave little to the imagination.

LIGHTWEIGHT. CLASS-LEADING POWER. REFINED RAW.

 With class-redefining weight and performance, the all-new 2019 Z400 establishes itself as the pack leader of lightweight naked streetbikes. Clad in aggressive new styling and inspired by Japanese Sugomi* principles, the Z400 delivers ultralight handling with strong low-end power ideal for rider friendly, nimble street riding.  With ergonomics that are friendly to shorter inseams and conducive to relaxed riding. Whether confidently navigating the city streets or parked strikingly on a street corner, this lightweight and powerful streetfighter is sure to turn heads when your sporting around on your Jim Gilbert’s Wheels and Deals Kawasaki Z400. 

2019 Kawasaki Z400 ABS Candy Cardinal Red/Metallic Spark Blackhttp://www.wheelsanddeals.ca
Z 400 Naked StreetBike

Starting with a cut-down/cut-out front fender that sets the stage for the spiky, aggressive design features to come. The headlight housing with dual LED projectors below a small flyscreen that protects the instrument can. Instrumentation, the Z400 sports an all-digital cluster that delivers an analog-style tachometer readout with a block-numeral display for speed and a gear indicator. There’s a digital odometer and trip meter, and a handful of idiot lights split between two clusters to take care of the rest. Radiator rides on the downtubes just above their union with the engine where it can breathe freely of the air coming over the top of the front fender.The handlebar has a little rise to it, and since the overall size is fairly compact, it’s sufficient to push your hands back enough to allow for a fairly-upright riding posture when you want it with room to tuck in when you need to. A 3.7-gallon fuel tank comes to a peak about midway, and it carries a declining line all the way back to the saddle to give your upper torso some room when you go into your racing tuck. The tank has a complex shape that uses an upper flange to fair out the airflow and form the knee pockets that pull your legs in out of the slipstream while tapering down in back to the teeny-tiny waist. 

Your legs reach the ground unimpeded when it’s time to dismount. The rise to the pillion forms a butt-bucket for the pilot and gives the Z400 an aggressive nose-down/tail-up sugomi style that shows its common DNA with the rest of the naked “Z” line and puts the rider “in” the bike more than “on” it. Fold-up, subframe-mount footpegs round out the passenger’s gear. The taillight tucked up under the rear tip with a mudguard that props up the standoff turn signals and license plate to finish up the gear in the re

The Uni-Trak shock in back sports a five-way preload adjuster. Symmetrical, 17-inch wheels run with five thin spokes to keep unsprung weight down.  plus the ABS comes as part of the standard equipment package for a little extra safety and the peace of mind that comes with it. Wow. You better get on over to Canada’s Huggable Car &  PowerSports Dealer now…k.

2019 KAWASAKI VULCAN 1700 VAQUERO


 Driving more than a halfton of man and bike. The word NIMBLE should not come to mind.  But that is the right word for the amazing Jim Gilberts Wheels and Deals 1700 Vaquero  bagger.

DEPARTING FROM  TRADITIONAL KAWASAKI 

The Vaquero styling from the side, front fairing and bodywork is very minimal until you walk you in front. There it is a different story! It is wide at the handlebar height but slimmer further down as it moves towards the ground. With side-opening hard bags that offer 35 litres of storage space each. 

The dashboard is an engineering marvel. Fuel gauge, a speedo screen loaded of things to tinker with. Plus a tach, temp gauge and an entertainment precinct with 40 watts of power driving the speakers in the outer edges of the fairing. Complete with iPod-connector and charger. Leave your Phone in your jacket or the roomy side glovebox. 

The  Vulcan 1700 power plant, liquid-cooled 1700cc engine that uses a SOHC rather than pushrods for greater efficiency. Large  air boxes on both side of the engine feed the twin-throat ETV (Electronic Throttle Valve) System. Two throttle cables transmit motion to an Accelerator Position Sensor that feeds data to the ECU, then an electronic motor provides rotary motion to control the opening and closing off the two 42mm butterflies. It’s not fly-by-wire and definitely feels just like any twin-cable throttle assembly.

The 26mm-wide belt of carbon-fibre belt offers high strength (tensile strength that is 40 per cent greater than a Kevlar belt of the same size) with a slim size and light weight. Backing the engine is a hydraulically-activated wet multi-plate clutch and six-speed transmission with the top two gears being overdrives. Impressive, normally something stands out but in the case of the Vaquero, everything works  without requiring undue attention.

Kawasaki’s first bagger model follows a wide-and-low concept, its design flowing from the front to the rear of the bike. Along with its hard, sporty image, the Vulcan 1700 Vaquero is loaded with high-grade cruising essentials like Kawasaki’s advanced brake system K-ACT ABS, Electronic Cruise Control, and a high-spec iPod-compatible audio system.

The Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic LT

s one of the longest reining old-school touring bike on the market

Long before fairings and bags were cool the Lt lead the way. With its  studded seat , matching bags, passenger backrest  and a large windshield. The forward foot controls put the rider into the windsock position and force a fairly upright posture, though there is plenty of room to slouch into the wind for comfortable cruising.

Legendary high-tensile tubular-steel members make up the double-cradle, double-downtube frame; a format that fits the historical narrative and provides a handy place to mount the radiator. Said radiator is fairly inconspicuous as it blends into the black hole that is the engine compartment, except on the LT where the contrast of the chromed mill makes it stand out.

 The Classic and LT models roll a 16-inch front tire with a 32-degree rake and 6.3 inches of trail. You can count on having some stability at speed for low-fatigue rides even if you pay for it with a bit of reluctance in the corners. Kawasaki used 41 mm forks across the board, but achieved a fatter look with beer-can-type shrouds on the LT. A hidden, preload-adjustable monoshock supports the triangular swingarm, and gives up 4.1 inches of travel to go with the 5.9 inches at the front end for a reasonably comfortable ride. 


When you want to do it all, the Vulcan 900 Classic LT is the midsize cruiser for the job. Commute all week using surprisingly little fuel, rumble downtown with its big-bike looks and sound, or hit the highway for a weekend tour.

BE DIFFERENT AND TAKE CARE OF PEOPLE.STARTING WITH ONE CAR, 2 GAS PUMPS AND A LOAN FROM DAWNA’S FATHER, LORNE SEELEY, IT SEEMS 40 YEARS FLEW BY IN A HURRY, BUT NOW JIM AND DAWNA ARE READY TO CELEBRATE A NEW MILESTONE AND LOOK FORWARD TO THE FUTURE WITH THE GRAND OPENING OF A BRAND SPANKING NEW POWER SPORTS CENTRE.THEY HAD NO IDEA WHEN THEY BEGAN THEIR JOURNEY IN THE LATE SEVENTIES THAT IT WOULD TURN OUT THIS WAY. BUT, THE MORE THEY WORKED THEIR DREAM, THE MORE IT BECAME A NEW REALITY; EVENTUALLY BECOMING KNOWN THE WORLD OVER AS CANADA’S HUGGABLE CAR DEALER. AND THE MORE THE BUSINESS GREW, THE MORE JIM AND DAWNA LEARNED THE VALUE OF BEING ABLE TO PIVOT, CHANGE AND ADAPT. NEVER STANDING STILL, THE GILBERTS KNOW BUSINESSES OF TOMORROW MUST CONSTANTLY BE DIFFERENTIATING THEMSELVES; DISRUPTING, RE-INVENTING AND RE-FINING … BUT, ALWAYS EMBRACING AND LIVING DAILY VALUES SUCH AS CREATING ENCHANTMENT AND THE EXTRA SPECIAL TOUCH THEY CALL “HUGGING”.IN THE GILBERT’S WORLD; THE HUG IS A METAPHOR FOR GOING THE EXTRA-MILE, THE LITTLE EXTRAS THAT MAKE ANY CUSTOMER FEEL THEY’RE RIGHT AT HOME … A PLACE WHERE THEY READILY RECOMMEND AND SEND THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS…A PLACE WHERE LEAVE WITH A TEDDY BEAR, A SMILE AND PROUD TO SAY, “THIS IS WHERE I BUY MY VEHICLES.”IT’S ABOUT FOSTERING A FAMILY MENTALITY AMONG CUSTOMERS, TEAM MEMBERS AND EVERYONE IN THE COMMUNITY WE TOUCH – ON-LINE OR OFF. YOU CAN SEE IT IN THEIR SMILES…THE LOOKS ON THEIR FACES AND THE POSITIVE COMMENTS THEY SHARE THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA. WHILE SO MANY OTHERS IN THEIR INDUSTRY TEND TO ZIG, THE GILBERTS LOOK FOR NEW WAYS TO ZAG. AND NOW, FOUR DECADES LATER, THAT FAMILY TRADITION CONTINUES WITH THE NEXT GENERATION OF GILBERTS AT THE HELM BELIEVING YOU CANNOT GROW IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING CHANGE. IN ORDER TO GROW THE SHOW AND KEEP THE FLOW, THE GILBERT FAMILY KNEW DIVERSIFICATION WAS NEEDED. EARLY IN 2018 THEY EXPANDED THEIR OFFERINGS AND BECAME “CANADA’S HUGGABLE TOY DEALER”. KAWASAKI MOTORCYCLES, WHEELERS AND JET SKIS. BENNINGTON AND CRESTLINER PONTOON BOATS ALONG WITH MERCURY OUTBOARD MOTORS. IN KEEPING WITH THE GILBERT FAMILY PHILOSOPHY OF NOT RESTING ON THEIR LAURELS, THE BUSINESS HAS BECOME A $40 MILLION-DOLLAR ENTERPRISE WITH THIRTY-EIGHT EAGER TEAM MEMBERS ALL WORKING WITH A SMILE AND A VISION OF TOMORROW. AND NO ONE IS MORE PROUD THAN JIM AND DAWNA AS THEY WATCH DAUGHTER CHELSEA, SON ALEX AND SON-IN-LAW ROB DAVIS NOW LEADING THE CHARGE WITH MORE OFFERINGS, MORE SMILES, MORE HUGGING AND A 12,000 SQUARE FOOT EXPANSION WELL UNDERWAY. GUESS YOU COULD SAY, THAT’S THE HUGGABLE WAY!

2019 Bennington Pontoon Boat 22 S CRUISE PREMIUM at Jim Gilbert’s Wheels and Deals

In 1997, a small group of industry veterans set out to build a boat brand focused on being the best built and never the largest. Those same founders and values are still the core of Bennington. We felt then, and still believe that when you do the right thing, everything else falls into place. Today, Bennington is family owned and operated with multiple generations of many families. We invite you to be a part of our Bennington family

Quietest pontoon ride in the industry

Our thicker cross channels provide more vertical strength than the typical channels found on most pontoons. This combined with our extruded M-deck brackets and fanged elevator bolted deck construction minimizes twisting and provides the most solid, quiet pontoon ride in the industry.

 Fully-welded aluminum construction ensures a far stronger and more rigid structure over the faster and cheaper method of single or even double surface welds. See Jim Gilberts Wheels and Deals for the best boat buying experience you will ever have.

Jim Gilbert's Wheels and Deals Kawasaki Vulcan s  Janet Crammond

The  2019 Kawasaki Vulcan S is an amazing mid-range urban cruiser. Looking at it your first thought will be Is a 650cc engine be able to put out enough power to move the Vulcan S? Well my friends, prepare yourself. No other cruiser handles like the Vulcan S; At a standstill, the handlebars fell very »light.« and easy to turn. While riding, it handles amazingly well, unlike anything  you could have expected. The 2018 Kawasaki Vulcan looks astonishing. If you are into cruisers, it just might be one of your favourite cruiser designs. Janet Crammond can tell you how the heads are turning as she drives her Jm Gilberts Wheels and Deals by.

The Kawasaki Vulcan S, clever weight distribution makes it different than any other motorcycle.

Jim Gilbert's Wheels and Deals Kawasaki Vulcan s

The Kawasaki Vulcan S has the same engine as the Versys 650 and the Ninja 650.

 It is optimized to perform better at lower RPM and offers more torque throughout the whole RPM range. It reaches it’s maximum at 6600 RPM. The pulling power will surprise you for sure. Nice work Kawasaki.

The parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine produces very little vibration for a twin-engine, so it is very comfortable on longer rides. The sheer power offers a lot of fun while cornering around and still has enough reserve to overtake another vehicle safely. You have a lot of instant power from the lower RPM range up, but above 5000 RPM, it becomes a rocket. It much more resembles a Jim Gilbert’s Wheels and Deals PowerSport bike than a cruiser which is simply astonishing.

The Jim Gilberts Wheels and Deals, Kawasaki Vulcan S comes with a braking system that will give you a lot of confidence. 

The front brake is a single 300mm disc with twin-piston calliper with ABS and the rear brake a Single 250mm disc with a single-piston calliper, ABS. Even though the 2018 Kawasaki Vulcan isn’t the lightest among motorcycles, the brakes offer a very good and controlled stopping power.

The high engine torque increases the stopping power with significant engine braking as well. You will get used to the strong engine braking very quickly.

The 2018 Kawasaki Vulcan looks astonishing.

If you are into cruisers, it just might be one of your favourite cruiser designs. There is a lot of unique details that compliment this quality built motorcycle. Looking at the motorcycle more closely, Janet can can tell you that every detail on her Kawasaki Vulcan S motorcycle is carefully designed.

From the  comfortable low seating position.

Smaller riders will have no trouble reaching the ground with both feet. The seating position feels very natural. The handlebars are easy to reach, footpegs are positioned low and not too much forward, so you don’t have to extend your legs too much.

The rear suspension offers you seven different settings. 

Another thing that will surprise you is that you can easily scrape your footpegs on the asphalt. If you don’t expect it, it can scare you a bit. This is due to low ground clearance of the Kawasaki Vulcan and low positioned footpegs. But to be clear, the Kawasaki Vulcan is a cruiser. Its purpose is not to bring your knee down in the corners.

Overall and considering the very affordable price, you get a lot of motorcycle for the money. 

The performance is easily comparable to any other mid-range cruiser. The wind protection is quite good, even at higher speeds but you have to take into account, that this is a cruiser and this type of motorcycles are not meant for speeding. It is a highway city combo like no other.  The whole motorcycle is very well designed, and it is simply beautiful, No one will argue with that. Overall, the Kawasaki Vulcan 2018 is impressive. It is such a fun, It is quality built, very well designed, one of the most reliable motorcycles out there. And the best thing is, it is very affordable, and it brings the cruiser segment much closer to a wider range of riders.

The big appeal may just be its upright and roomy riding position and you will love the adjustable-height windscreen. There have been a few styling updates over the years and the addition of an LT model that comes equipped with detachable hard side bags.

Cool……

The Carefree Power is provided by Kawasaki’s compact 649cc parallel twin featuring liquid-cooling, semi-downdraft fuel injection, twin cams, four valves per cylinder, under-piston oil jets, counterbalancer, and a state of tune providing greater low-to-midrange torque.
