LibertyPilot ^ Yeah, I gotcha on that one: it's synomous with "ballsier" only more quick than all out speed. The VN750's have snot.

OlHossCanada The vn750 is the "quickest" cruiser (in a 1/4 mile drag race) that Ma Kaw makes, except for the Meanstreak, which has twice the displacement. Granted this info is a bit dated, as it doesn`t include the vn900 or the 1600. The VN750 is not necessarily the fastest Kaw cruiser as is said below in the quote.

Calculating the gear ratios says the top speed potential for the vn750 is ~123 mph at the redline of 8500 rpm.

Vulcan 750 Top Speed
Always good to know we have the fastest (EDIT: should read quickest) of the Kaw Cruisers (well except for the Meanstreak)... This info is dated, missing the 1600, but still is interesting. I ranked on 1/4 times. Quarter mile elapsed time/ending speed

1500 Mean Streak 13.76/95.6
VN750 13.98/93.1
800A 14.00/93.6
800 Classic 14.34/89.9
1500 Drifter 14.56/88.9
1500 Nomad FI 15.49/88.1
800 Drifter 14.56/88.9
1500 Classic FI 14.98/88.7
1500 Classic (carb) 15.03/85.3

VNasty I have had alot of different bike over the years from the 70's to current standard to sport cruiser but I just picked up this abandoned 85 vn700 and it keeps me interrested more than most have.

Really Impressed with this bike

I just wanted to say that,of the bikes I have owned,my 85 VN700 is alot "snottier" than I expected,compared to my 1st bike which was an 82 Iron head sportster,and the second one being a 2001 Vstar 650..I definately like the Vulcan hands down over the other 2.
