COMBINING SHOW-STOPPING STYLE WITH THE PERFORMANCE AND DEPENDABILITY OF A PRODUCTION KAWASAKI MOTORCYCLE, THE
VULCAN® 1700 VAQUERO® IS THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS. A THUNDEROUS 1,700cc FUEL-INJECTED V-TWIN FEATURING ADVANCED KAWASAKI TECHNOLOGY OFFERS A SMOOTH, REASSURING RIDE.
  • Fuel-injected 52-degree 1,700cc V-twin delivers high torque levels with a powerful and distinct V-twin feel
  • Electronic cruise control system can be activated in 3rd gear or at any speed between 30mph and 85mph
  • Kawasaki Advanced Coactive-braking Technology (K-ACT II) ABS helps ensure ideal brake force distribution for confident braking
  • Stylish, frame-mounted fairing keeps steering feel light by directing aerodynamic forces into the chassis
  • Feature-rich, AM/FM/WB audio system with iPod® and SiriusXM® radio compatibility
  • Hard, lockable and sealed, side-opening saddlebags provide nearly 10 gallons of storage space each
