Ducati Diavel

Wait, what? Yes, you read it right… The Ducati Diavel is one of the motorcycles with a similar appearance to the Kawasaki Vulcan even though there is a huge gap in their performance.

There is some simularity in the basic outline and some of the features on both bikes like the sleek headlights.

Ducati XDiavel

The Ducati XDiavel is also similar in appearance to the Kawasaki Vulcan in the sense that they both look kind of sleek as cruisers. Yes, the XDiavel is much more powerful and the Vulcan would be considered a toy next to it, but in comparison to all the other motorcycles out there, it’s one of a few that actually looks anything like the Vulcan.

Harley-Davidson Street 750

The Harley-Davidson Street 750 is somewhat similar in appearance but bit less of a cruiser than what the Vulcan is. Before you jump on your horse, I believe that’s exactly what Harley-Davidson intended with the Street 750. It’s more upward seating position kind of makes it seem like it’s nearing the border between a cruiser and standard motorcycle. Still, the Street 750 has some kind of resemblance to the Vulcan.

Harley-Davidson FXDR 114

65% match146% match

Is the Harley-Davidson FXDR 114 really comparable to the Kawasaki Vulcan? Yes… maybe… no, not really. Well, in appearance, they do kind of look alike when you remove the rear mudguard and try to look past the lack of the missing V-Twin engine on the Vulcan. But they are both meant to be sleek cruisers and that makes them comparable.

Indian Scout Bobber Sixty

The Indian Scout Bobber Sixty and the Kawasaki Vulcan isn’t all that similar in appearances. The Indian model has a much more traditional cruiser look and feel to it. Besides, you can’t really miss the V-Twin in the Indian models at all. This might be a bit far fetched but it is still closer than a lot of other motorcycles out there.

Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom

90% match82% match

The Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom is the most obvious motorcycle on this list as it is basically the Vulcan with a bigger engine, mind a few other differences. Yet, for some reason, it is one that few people think of when comparing the Vulcan to other bikes.

Suzuki Boulevard M109R B.O.S.S.

AppearancePerformance
85% match210% match

The Suzuki Boulevard M109R B.O.S.S. is probably the closest non-Kawasaki to the Vulcan regarding its appearance. But it does have more than 1000cc of engine displacement which makes even the bigger Vulcans seem like playthings. And for that, you’ll pay twice the price of a regular Vulcan.

Yamaha VMAX

The Yamaha VMAX would probably not have made this list if it wasn’t for the shape of the headlight. Even the overall shape of the bike isn’t completely there, given that they are both sport cruisers. But with very few other lookalike models, it might be worth adding to the list.
