About Kawasaki Drifters

Kawasaki Drifters are the motorcycles of choice for riders that love truly unique modern classics. The two Drifters under Kawasaki's Vulcan brand have a signature design inspired by other classic motorcycles, such as the Indian Chief and Vulcan Classic. This is great if you love a retro look that hides a powerful engine. The first and bigger of the two cruisers is the Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 Drifter. It carries a 1470 cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected V-twin engine paired with five-speed transmission. While the early Vulcan 1500 Drifters have a mysterious, blacked out look, the latter models are lighter, with shiny chrome parts. The smaller Kawasaki 800 Drifter got the superstar chrome looks right from the start. While it shares the V-twin engine of its larger stablemate, it only packs 805 cc, which is not as powerful. However, the decorative cooling fins mean you still look just as impressive on this bike. If you want to know firsthand the sublime thrill of riding these retro modern machines, you can find a wide selection of Kawasaki Drifters and their custom parts on eBay.
