Kawasaki VN 1700 Voyager


As for motorcycle lovers, as a true Full Dresser Kawasaki VN 1700 Voyager promises the great travel experience.

Lavish spoils the largest model UN in 1700 with two-wheel travel luxury. Moreover, recently the standard ABS system has improved the Kawasaki. Granted – nearly 23 500 € are no bargain. On the other hand, the customer is also a lot of motorcycle for the money makes, but solely the well-designed fairing impression.

In addition, it provides a more than ordinary wind and weather protection.

Even on wet days, rain suit can usually stay in their luggage – anywhere in the 50 liter top box or one of each 38-liter saddlebags can always find room. In one of the two lockable glove boxes, the combination will not fit on the other hand: They are reserved for your wallet, your phone or digital camera.

To photograph and there is certainly enough, but it invites an almost comfortable stalls for long distances. Should that be it caused by audio system for entertainment or a cruise control stress-free travel permits, of course almost by himself so we have come across along the small, winding side streets of practice in dealing with the blank 400 are already on pounds vast Kawasaki, who happily via powerful brakes and ABS can be well in check.

The anti-lock braking system is now in its second generation with an advanced electronic control device for use: the increased computing power allows a more balanced braking. Because when you press the front and / or rear wheel brake acts as the brake fluid in a normal braking system on the caliper pistons.

Pressure sensors – one takes care of the front, one rear to brake – register additionally employed here braking energy, while the control unit from this calculates the optimum power for maximum braking and the ABS pump as needed to print on the front and / or rear brake increases. Although much effort, but well worth the very latest, when the weight of the UN in a dicey situation makes unpleasant way. The Kawa 2011 gets in the way a sister “excavator-style”.

The term low profile bikes to hide with flowing lines from front to rear and plenty of black-colored parts. It will then roll the independently drawn VN 1700 Voyager Custom with a sweeping look into the 2011 season, while the VN-1700 engine will get another job.

The liquid-cooled four-valve V2 provides 54 kW / 73 hp at 5000 r / min and a maximum torque of 136 Nm, which is already at 2750 tours. Nevertheless, one inserts the sixth, appropriately enough as “Overdrive” usually only after the passage titled Resort Childs. This is done by proper style rocker, before being set on cruise control by means of two knobs, the travel speed.

This should, however, lie in spite of the wind shield barely over 150 km / hr. Firstly, the UN is already hectic not look good and then the other consumption climbs ever about seven liters, while it is on average 6.3 liters per 100 kilometers. Given the 20-liter tank is not too big failing thus, ranges from about 300 kilometers.

Once on the road, one of the Japanese steamer trip educates after a few meters to a more relaxed pace.

This is without the Voyager – not only because of the cost price – a motorcycle for the legislative rather tere clientele, conducting approximately half a tonne of live weight does not consider as a test, but as a very relaxing ride. Solid Rock will be heard because of the potent stereo rather than techno or hip-hop – slip through while the mileage under the first Japanese full-Dresser with V2. A real bike for the mind also.
