The Vulcan 700/750 was (and is) loaded with features that have been deemed unnecessary, unstylish or too expensive on more recent models. The Vulcan 750 boasts shaft drive, cast wheels (a 19-inch front and 15-inch rear) with tubeless tires, dual-disc front brake, a tachometer (redlined at 8500 rpm), a fuel gauge, a coolant-temperature gauge, a headlight-failure warning light, a dual-bulb taillight (if one burns out, you're not invisible at night), four-way flashers, dual horns, shocks that adjust for air pressure and rebound damping, air-pressure-adjustable fork legs, a handlebar choke lever, Kawasaki's positive neutral finder in the five-speed gearbox, two helmet locks and a centerstand. That last item is something we frequently wish for on cruisers (the Yamaha V-Max is the only other cruiser that has one). It makes it easy to check the tires and oil before each ride, and greatly simplifies many service procedures. Fashion and cost concerns have made centerstands all but extinct.
