Cruiser Style with Complete Touring Credentials

While any motorcycle can be ridden long distances if the rider is determined only a special few truly deserve to be called a touring cruiser. The Vulcan® 1700 Voyager® is one of those rare machines. The Voyager delivers the muscular performance you’d expect from a torquey 1700 cc V-twin powerplant and combines it with the classic styling discriminating cruiser riders demand. Mix in Kawasaki’s engineering expertise and reputation for dependability and you’ve got a motorcycle that will carry you reliably coast-to-coast — and back again.

Designed to complement the riders’ brake inputs the system distributes the ideal amount of brake pressure to maximize braking efficiency.Low battery mode maintains ABS function while reducing signal frequency to conserve power when neededFor increased controllability in tight corners and when executing U-turns K-ACT’s coactive function does not engage when braking is initiated at speeds below 12 mphABS function is disengaged at speeds below 4 mphDual 300 mm front disc brakes with 4-piston calipers and a 2-piston rear disc brake for sure powerful stopsPowerful 1700 cc V-twin engineLiquid-cooled 4 valves per cylinder fuel-injected 1700 cc 52 degree V-twin engineLong-stroke 102 x 104 mm bore and stroke dimensions help deliver high levels of torque with a distinctive V-twin feelValve system uses a single overhead cam arrangement instead of pushrods for quicker revving and enhanced midto high-rpm powerSemi-dry sump allows a lower crankshaft placement and a longer piston stroke without increasing engine heightSingle-pin crank accentuates the engine’s V-twin character by providing stronger power pulsesLarge capacity airbox is located on both sides of the engineSmall-diameter iridium sparkplugs reach deep into the combustion chamber for high combustion efficiency especially during low-load operationDual mufflers 1 on each side of the bike allow maximum clearance for luggageEngine tuning offers superior acceleration in the 50 to 70 mph rangeEven in overdrive the engine pulls strongly in this speed range facilitating overtaking at highway speedsDigital Fuel InjectionThe touring-oriented Voyager utilizes DFI® and an exhaust system tuned to reach peak torque and horsepower at a higher rpm than the engines used in standard Vulcan 1700 cruisersElectronic Throttle Valve SystemFully electronic throttle actuation system enables the ECU to control the volume of intake air (via throttle valve angle) and fuel (via fuel injector timing) delivered to the engineOptimized fuel injector timing and throttle valve position result in accurate powerful engine responseControl of both fuel injection and airflow provides easy starting and precise cold-engine idle speed controlFrom the rider’s perspective the ETV works like a standard cable-operated throttle; the throttle grip is still connected to cables so the feel at the grip is the sameTwisting the throttle turns a pulley on the throttle body which triggers the Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) to send a signal to the ECU which then modulates the throttle valves via a DC motorAccurate throttle position is relayed to the ECU by a Throttle Position Sensor (TPS)APS and TPS send 2 sets of signals to the ECU for system redundancy in the unlikely event of a sensor failureCruise ControlCruise control can be engaged and adjusted entirely from the right handlebarCruise control can be activated in 3rd gear or above at any speed between 30 mph and 85 mphPressure on the brake lever clutch lever or rear brake pedal automatically disengages the cruise control as will manually rolling off the throttleOn Board DiagnosticsDiagnostic system allows self-testing of the electronic systems on the Vulcan 1700Display codes on the instrumentation can be read by owner using accessory manual6-speed Transmission / Final DriveBoth 5th and 6th gears are “overdrive” ratios which contributes to stress-free riding and better fuel economy when cruising at highway speeds28 mm carbon fiber reinforced final drive belt offers a 40 percent increase in tensile strength compared to current Kevlar belts. This allows the Vulcan 1700 to use a slim belt only2 mm wider than the Kevlar unit on the Vulcan 900.Belt drive system is quiet efficient and offers reduced maintenance compared to a chainLight Handling ChassisA more compact package than its predecessors the Voyager has a shorter wheelbase and shorter distance between the seat and steering head for comfortable rider ergonomics and easy maneuverabilityDesigned to be as light and slim as possible the frame minimizes the number of forged parts and trims any unnecessary metal. The only forged parts are areas that require additional strength – the down-tube joint engine brackets side-stand bracket and rear fender / shock absorber bracket.The compact design contributes to light handling and facilitates handling at low speeds especially when executing precise slow-speed maneuvers like parking or making U-turns45 mm Telescopic ForkProvides superb steering feedback5.5 inches of travel helps provide excellent ride qualityDual Adjustable Rear Air ShocksFeatures air-adjustable spring preload to help compensate for passenger and luggage variations4-way rebound damping adjustments help tune the suspension to suit the rider’s preferenceVoyager-specific settings match the load carrying and long distance touring requirements inherent in this type of motorcycle9-spoke Cast WheelsAllow the use of tubeless tires and complement the Voyager’s muscular styling130/90 front and 170/70 rear tires offer optimal traction and wear characteristicsTire choice and suspension settings augment the chassis’ light handling characteristicsClassic V-twin AppealBasic architecture has a significant impact on a V-twin engine’s appearanceThe line created by the top of the airbox and the cylinder heads forms a curved shape that continues to flow through the bikeDeeply chromed engine covers have curved upper surfaces. Their 3-D form adds volume and gives a quality appearance.The edges of the cooling fins receive a special NC treatment that makes them gleam in sunlightAll the non-chromed parts of the engine have a Matte Black finish that further accentuates the chromed partsBodyworkMuscular fairing is reminiscent of classic American muscle cars in its sculpted flowing designChromed headlamp cover and twin fog lights contribute to the muscle car themeThe fuel tank’s hand-sculpted contours employ constantly varying radii giving the bike a dynamic flow that is pleasing both to the eye and to the touchThe lines flowing through the rest of the bike and its elegant fuel tank contribute to the Voyager’s curvaceous figureLiberal use of chrome contrasts nicely with the bodywork’s deep lustrous paint. The engine front and rear guards accents on the side cases and trunk and the trunk brackets are fully chromed.Design motif from the front fender continues on the rear fender which features an elegant LED taillightFront and rear guards help protect the bike’s bodywork in case of a tip-overDual 35W fog lights have a dedicated on / off switch and can be adjusted verticallyIn addition to the taillight on the rear fender the Voyager also has a large highly visible LED taillight mounted on the rear of the trunk that contributes to its appearanceClassic Retro DashboardInstrument layout and large round dials give the Voyager’s console a classic automotive elegance which is reinforced by the font used in the instrumentationEven the radio has a classic look reminiscent of the 1960'sMulti-function LCD display in the center of the instrument console is controlled by switches on the right handlebar. Features include a gear position indicator fuel gauge clock odometer dual trip meters remaining range and average fuel consumption.Analog displays include speedometer tachometer and coolant temperature gaugeAudio system with twin speakers features radio (FM/AM/WX) and compatibility with optional iPod® XM tuner or CB radio unitsThe audio system (and iPod) can be operated by switches on the left handlebarGPS Navigation Audio Prompt Capability can play navigation voice prompts from Garmin Zumo 600 or 665 series GPS devices through the motorcycle’s audio system or Genuine Kawasaki Accessory helmet headsetsIgnition switch allows key removal in the on position; preventing keys from damaging the chrome finish around the ignition area during operationTurning the ignition switch collar to the ACC position allows accessories to be used while the engine is off and turning it to the “OFF” position turns the engine off and necessitates re-insertion of the key to restartWind ProtectionLarge windshield and fairing help protect the rider and passenger from wind and elementsWith the front fairing mounted to the frame any wind buffeting is transferred to the bike rather than the handlebar helping to enhance highway stability and reduce rider fatigueLeg shields have adjustable vents to tailor the amount of airflow to the rider’s legsAmple Storage13.2 gallon (50 liter) lockable trunk is large enough to fit 2 full-face helmetsTop-opening side cases are sealed and lockable with a volume of 10 gallons (38 liters) eachUp front lockable glove boxes provide a handy place for storing small items and accessories.
