Compared to the other engines here, the Vulcan’s seems to rev forever. Leaving crowded civilization behind, the road’s grade steepened and its camber changed from curve to curve as we gained elevation. Plenty of chrome and a tank-mounted speedometer are matched with inverted forks, to join the past with the present. The clean lines of the 3.4-gallon teardrop gas tank flow into the shape of the saddle which then complements the abbreviated rear fender. A reflector is integrated into the tail light for a clean look to the rear of the bike.
