Vulcan 800 Drifter For cruiser enthusiasts who love the styling cues of the 1940s, the Kawasaki Vulcan 800 Drifter cruiser has all the class and technological virtues of its larger sibling, the Drifter 1500 including a solo saddle, wire wheels draped with sculpted fenders, sturdy V-twin engine and a fishtail muffler. This smaller Drifter is also easier on the bank account for riders who are just getting started in their cruiser experience. The Vulcan 800 Drifter is powered by a 805cc V-twin SOHC four-stroke engine with a single-pin crankshaft for a classic V-twin rumble and gear driven balancer to reduce vibration. Finned cylinders and four-valve heads are liquid-cooled for optimum thermal control. Concealed automatic cam chain tensioners preserve the engine's clean lines and allow more precise cam timing, while a spin-on oil filter helps make maintenance a quick and easy job. The Drifter's 36mm carburetor features the Kawasaki Throttle Responsive Ignition Control (K-TRIC) throttle position censor, which is connected to the digitally mapped ignition system. K-TRIC varies ignition timing according to throttle position and engine rpm so that the ignition compensates for differing engine loads. The result is crisp throttle response and better fuel efficiency.
