Cruising is all about things in style and comfort, life’s little luxuries and the time to smell the roses. So in, head out on the highway and cruise.

Complete Touring Style Impressive Value and Dependability

1700 Voyager® is the thinking touring cruiser. Sure, it all the muscular feel and classic you demand, but it also ups the ante superb engineering, impressive and genuinely useful features to comfort and make the longest more livable. It does it all at a thousands lower than models, isn-t that

Voyager boasts all the details need for adventurous journeys: a and torquey 1,700cc V-twin large frame-mounted fairing, integrated luggage that a week-s worth of gear, a saddle, electronic cruise high-fidelity sound system, K-ACT anti-lock/integrated braking and the sort of design acumen and dependability Kawasaki is renowned

Though a non-ABS model is the 1700 Voyager-s driveline/braking is enhanced with the addition of the Advanced Coactive Braking (K-ACT) ABS system. K-ACT advanced electronics to translate the braking inputs from the front lever and rear into smooth, balanced and maximum stopping performance.

the front lever also the rear brake, and the rear also engages the right caliper: K-ACT ensures all happens seamlessly and efficiently, and the system uses the same lighter ABS unit and faster, brake ECU found on the Kawasaki 14 ABS motorcycle for even smoother, precise operation. K-ACT-s function does not engage braking is applied at speeds 12 mph, and the ABS function is automatically at speeds below 4 mph.

much more on the unique front, including Kawasaki-s electronic throttle valve which works in concert the Voyager-s Electronic Fuel (EFI) system to enhance response without dulling the big distinctive throb. The system helps the ECU deliver ultra-precise metering and more accurate speed control.

All V-twins present engine challenges, especially full-dress with leg shields. This is to the rear cylinder and exhaust being located almost under the rider. Kawasaki was the manufacturer to provide, as standard an effectively designed air management to help increase rider at a stop.

The primary component of the Air Management System (KAMS) radiator heat to the ground, the engine, while the secondary of the system draws heat from the rear cylinder and pipe and directs it to the ground on the side of the motorcycle. This is particularly effective in warm while stopped in traffic or for periods of low-speed operation, as during staging for group or parades.

The 1,700cc 52-degree V-twin all of cool technology was designed to is a marvel of engineering, and is as functionally as they come. Featuring cooling, four-valve cylinder and a single overhead cam setup for mid-range power, the engine a pair of big pistons to pump out a quantity of torque over an wide rpm range — a key to engine-s superb flexibility. a boatload of the stuff located the rpm zone where riders spend the most time and more than enough idle all the way to 5,000 rpm, so arm-straightening thrust is available now every time you twist the

Voyager-s have excellent sound and a tapered, classic look. touring functionality is provided by beefy but easy-to-squeeze clutch, features six damping springs and three-stage engagement for easier under hard acceleration.

The touring cruiser employs technology matched with touring features such as cruise control and a six-speed with overdrive fifth and gears. The cruise control is operated from the right and can be activated between 30 and 85 mph in any of the top four Conveniently, the cruise control can be by pressing the brake lever, lever, rear brake or by manually rolling off the throttle.

overdrive ratios and a super carbon fiber reinforced belt, the Voyager-s drivetrain is suited to its role as a relaxed Its tall fifth and sixth contribute to relaxed riding and fuel economy at highway and its carbon fiber reinforced belt has a 40-percent higher strength than the latest units, allowing use of a 28mm that minimizes drivetrain

A long-haul tourer needs wind and weather protection, and the packs plenty in the form of its frame-mounted windshield and fairing, as as leg shields that incorporate venting to keep engine off the rider-s legs during going. Mounting this sculpted fairing to the frame any wind buffeting to the bike than the handlebar, which rider fatigue on longer

The headset-compatible, 40-watt, twin-speaker system features navigation prompts, a three-band (FM/AM/WX) that is also compatible iPods, an XM radio tuner, GPS devices, or a CB radio unit.

Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 ABS Features and Benefits

Kawasaki Coactive-Braking Technology (K-ACT) ABS

Voyager ABS models feature the fastest version of Kawasaki-s K-ACT system, which riders to execute controlled, braking. Designed to complement the brake inputs, the system the ideal amount of brake to maximize braking efficiency

Low battery mode maintains ABS while reducing signal to conserve power when

— For increased controllability in corners and when executing K-ACT-s coactive function not engage when braking is at speeds below 12 mph

— ABS is disengaged at speeds below 4 mph

Both ABS and non-ABS models use 300mm front disc with four-piston calipers and a rear disc brake for powerful stops

Powerful V-twin engine

— four valves per cylinder, 1,700cc 52-degree V-twin

— Long-… 102 x 104mm and … dimensions help high levels of torque a distinctive V-twin feel

Valve system uses a overhead cam arrangement instead of for quicker revving and enhanced mid to rpm power

— Semi-dry allows a lower crankshaft and a longer piston … increasing engine height

Single-pin crank accentuates the V-twin character by providing power pulses

— capacity airbox is located on sides of the engine

— iridium sparkplugs reach into the combustion chamber for combustion efficiency, especially low-load operation

— mufflers, one on each side of the allow maximum clearance for

— Engine tuning superior acceleration in the 50 to 70 mph range

Even in overdrive, the engine strongly in this speed facilitating overtaking at highway

Digital Fuel Injection
