Visually, the bike is stunning, with great detailing and flowing lines. The big four-beam headlight is sure to be controversial, but it instantly grew on me. In fact, it was one of my favorite things about the motorcycle when I saw it in the flesh, the feature that visually sets the bike apart from the crowd. In profile, the top line of the headlight nacelle/fork cover flows into the line of the tank-top speedometer housing. The tank holds 5.5 gallons. A single-damper preload-adjustable shock with eight-step rebound damping is offset to the right side of the frame under the seat to make room for the battery and offers 3.9 inches of travel. The steering head is angled at 32 degrees, and front wheel tral is 7.2 inches. Stout 49mm legs are used in the fork to provide 5.9 inches of travel. Cast wheels are used at both ends. The front is stopped by dual discs and four-piston calipers, and the rear carries a fat 200/60R16 tire. The front is a 150/80R16, and both are radials. Though the Vulcan 2000 does not carry the "Classic" name, it is styled in that vein, with low, wide lines, floorboards, fat fork legs, etc.
