2011 Kawasaki Vulcan Vaquero | UPDATED

Jeans: Riding

Boots: Icon Duty 4

But the Vaquero, apparently, is to have a singular appeal It’s clear that intends to post it up against the Road Glide, Victory Country and Star Stratoliner Why wouldn’t they?

After when Harley-Davidson says the Glide is its top-selling model, you hop to it.

A Cowboy?

There’s little about the Vaquero’s influences. cues from the Road/Street nexus can be discerned almost you look, from the chopped deflector and swoopy frame-mounted to the sleek, one-piece saddle. Kawasaki manages to imbue the Vulcan with enough of its own that it won’t readily be for a Harley.

The fairing has its own sweep and flow, hot-rod-style muscularity that’s a big of the design ethic. Details integrated louvers in the fairing form to the bike’s muscle-car pretensions (even if it is all just and a unique chin fairing up residence down below. If we to pick styling nits, point out the wholly undersized lights cowering beneath the sizeable headlight and beefy fork (same as on the Voyager).

Otherwise, the overall lines well, all the way to the sculpted hardbags the tail section, with a exhaust on either side the bag bottoms.

The Vaquero gets a of tweaks in the powertrain to set it apart the other 1700s as well. include a new first-gear ratio to reduce noise when to first (from neutral), and third and fourth gear to smooth shifting action and gearbox clatter. A new second ring is also added for and the lower primary chain is eliminated to lessen weight.

Like the Vulcan Classic, the rolls with a non-damper clutch, which Kawasaki gives the rider more feel.’ Kawasaki admits sensing that engine is to depend on the rider and his type of I certainly didn’t feel a difference in smoothness between the and its stablemates-or many of its competitors, for matter. The V-twin feels smooth at all speeds, except at some of the taller gears even then it’s a effect). That said, enough vibe and rumble the Vaquero’s dual-counterbalanced engine to you that you’re atop an 800 lb.

Also new is the reshaped intake which is said to increase volume for a more linear response and improved idle; an update that will its way to all 1700cc Vulcans. The Vaquero gets a new exhaust muffler tapered tips which says will reduce levels at cruising speeds. intake and exhaust changes mean new settings for the ECU, so all 1700s will get an updated center for 2011.

The final change is in the Vaquero’s drive belt-the carbon unit is now 2mm narrower, for better between the belt’s pulleys.
