It would be redundant to state that the Vulcan 2000 is a big bike, as all of the bikes here are big, but the Vulcan is big for a big bike. Ergonomically, it's not too stretched-out, but the sheer dimensions of the thing, along with the weight, make for a very, very "big bike" experience. What you do get for that price is an extremely torquey machine that somehow is also very manageable. Needless to say, this bike is all about the motor, effortlessly and soulfully thrumming away from a stop when the wick is turned on it. Ironically fuel mileage (one of the big factors in people rushing to little bikes these days) is actually pretty solid on the 2k, getting close to 40 mpg from its pushrod-equipped, water-cooled mill.
