2009 Kawasaki VN1700 Tourer

Introducing A New Series Of V-Twins

Kawasaki is proud to its newest series of big V-Twins. The Series, successors to the VN1600 feature powerful 1700cc light handling and trademark craftsmanship.

The new engine design is to that of the mighty VN2000, but a SOHC rather than OHV Its increase in displacement and long-… ensure both torque and gains over the VN1600 New features include Kawasaki’s fully electronic throttle system, a new 6-speed transmission overdrive, and belt final like the VN2000 and VN900

The VN1700 Series is of four models: two Tourers Voyager and VN1700C) and two Cruisers and VN1700G). Variations in tuning and mean there is a VN1700 for all Kawasaki Cruiser fans.

Voyager: Kawasaki’s first full-dress tourer features all the features and equipment necessary for two-up touring. (For details about the Voyager refer to the VN1700 Voyager Information.)

Two series of were designed for the new VN1700 one for the touring-oriented VN1700C (and Voyager), and one for the cruising-oriented VN1700E and

The difference was achieved through FI settings and muffler systems. On American models, the result is peak torque (up about 15% the VN1600D) and peak horsepower (up 20% from the VN1600D) occur at rpm: cruising-oriented models are such that peak occurs at lower rpm.

Operation of the cruise control is from the right handle.

Cruise control can be activated 30 mph (47 km/h) and 85 mph (137 km/h) in 3rd or above.

Operating the brake clutch lever or rear pedal causes the cruise to be disengaged. Closing the throttle the zero-throttle position is another way to disengage the cruise control.
