India Kawasaki has introduced the Kawasaki Vulcan S in a new pearl lava orange colour. The new colour adds to the already-existing black colour variant. The bike was launched in December 2017.
The introduction of a new colour is mainly due to the positive response received from the customers to the existing model. The Pearl Lava Orange colour variant costs INR 5,58,400, ex-showroom, Delhi. The new colour variant is INR 10,000 more than the ex-showroom, Delhi price of the Black colour version.
