Product Description
Built for the touring rider who has to have it alland look good having it

Flagship of the Vulcan 1700 family, the Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Voyager and Voyager ABS come equipped with everything the serious touring rider needs to pile on the miles in comfort and style: a large frame-mounted fairing, amazing storage capacity, a sculpted touring seat, electronic cruise control, a premium sound system and a powerful long-stroke 1700cc, liquid-cooled, 52 V-Twin engine.

For 2010, the Vulcan Voyager ABSs complement of cutting-edge electronics is headlined by a new, second-generation version of the Kawasaki Advanced Coactive Braking Technology (K-ACT) system. Available on the ABS-equipped Voyager, K-ACT uses advanced electronics to translate the riders braking inputs into both the front lever and rear pedal into smooth, balanced deceleration and maximum stopping performance. Basically, the front lever also activates the rear brake, and the rear pedal also engages the right front caliper: K-ACT sees to it that that happens seamlessly and efficiently, and the new, second-generation system uses the same smaller, lighter ABS unit and the faster, higher-spec brake ECU found on the Kawasaki Concours 14 ABS motorcycle for even smoother, more precise operation. (Unlike the Concours 14 ABS, however, only a single K-ACT mode is available.) K-ACTs coactive function does not engage when braking is initiated at speeds below 12 mph, and the ABS function is automatically disengaged at sds below four mph.

Yet more unique technology is found in Kawasakis fully electronic throttle valve system. Working with the rest of the fuel injection system, the electronic throttle valve enhances the engines response without detracting from its distinctive V-twin feel. It also helps the ECU deliver ultra-precise metering of intake airflow and more-accurate idle speed control. The system utilizes an Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) and a Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). Both units feed data to the ECU, which adjusts the throttle plates to tailor intake airflow accordingly. The system offers natural throttle feel, because the APS is activated by a throttle body pulley thats connected by cables to the throttle grip.

This is no V-twin from yesteryear. The Voyagers 1700cc engine revs right up, thanks to overhead cams. And its fuel injection system, like those in use on Kawasakis Ninja 650R and Vulcan 900 motorcycles, utilizes one sensor in place of the usual three for less complexity and weight. Besides the obvious FI advantages like improved fuel economy and automatic altitude adjustments, the system also permits easy hands-off warm-up and idle speed control.

The Voyagers FI and exhaust are tuned to deliver peak torque and horsepower at higher rpm than the Classic models ideal for an open road tourer. Additional touring functionality is provided by its clutch, which features six damping springs and a progressive three-stage engagement for easier shifting under hard acceleration.

The Voyagers innovative technology is matched with essential touring features like cruise control and a six-speed transmission with overdrive fifth and sixth gears. The cruise control is conveniently operated from the right handlebar and can be activated between 30 and 85 mph in any of the top four gears. Conveniently, the cruise control can be disengaged by any of the following methods: brake lever, clutch lever, rear brake pedal, or manually rolling off the throttle.

Featuring overdrive ratios and a super strong carbon fiber drive belt, the Voyagers drive train is ideally suited to its role as a relaxed mile-eater. Its tall overdrive fifth and sixth gears contribute to relaxed riding and better fuel economy at highway speeds, and its carbon fiber drive belt has a 40-percent higher tensile strength than the latest Kevlar units, allowing use of a 28mm design that keeps drive train width to a minimum.

The Voyager supplies superior protection from the wind and the elements thanks to a large frame-mounted windshield and front fairing, as well as leg shieldsand for 2010, improved heat management better insulates the rider from engine heat. Mounting the fairing to the frame transfers any wind buffeting to the bike rather than the handlebars, reducing rider fatigue on long trips. Airflow to the lower extremities can be custom-tailored via adjustable air vents incorporated in the leg shields.

Voyager riders dont need to leave anything behind, thanks to a pair of sealed and lockable, top-opening side cases which offer 10 gal (38L) of volume each, and a color-matched, 13.2 gal (50L) lockable tail trunk big enough to swallow two large full-face helmets. Besides this ample storage, the Voyager also has a pair of lockable glove boxes up front which provide a handy place for storing small items and accessories.

Comfortable seating for the rider and passenger is a must on a touring bike and the Voyager delivers again with deluxe touring seats that are sculpted to provide additional support for all-day touring. Contributing to long-distance passenger security and relaxation are a luxury backrest and floorboards for both the rider and passenger.

Built-in instruments and radio controls mounted on the Voyagers classic automotive style dash board offer exceptional functionality and classic muscle car styling. The image is reinforced by the classic font used on the large round dials of the instrumentation and the radio thats reminiscent of 8-track players from the 1960s.

A multi-function LCD display is mixed in with the retro analog dials in the center of the instrument console. Its controlled by switches on the right handlebar and features a gear position indicator, clock, odometer, dual trip meters, remaining range and average fuel consumption.

The intercom headset-compatible, 40W, twin-speaker audio system features a three-band (FM/AM/WX) radio that is also compatible with iPods, an XM radio tuner, or a CB radio unit. The audio system (and iPod) can be operated by an integrated controller on the left handlebar. In addition to volume, the rider can also adjust the bass, treble and balance levels of the system.

The Voyager also features a water-cooled, rare-earth magnet alternator that produces an impressive 46.8 amps of electrical output; enough to power add-on navigation systems and other electrical accessories that enrich modern touring. The Voyager also features a convenient cigarette lighter-style power port on the dash and two power outlets under the seat ideal for electrically heated clothing and additional accessories.

The designers were able to incorporate abundant technology into the Vulcan 1700 Voyager without compromising the presence and visual appeal expected of a Kawasaki flagship motorcycle. Like the dashboard, the Voyagers bodywork continues the 60s muscle car inspiration with its study of muscular curvature. The meticulous attention to detail and exquisite craftsmanship exercised on the bodywork and engine covers is revealed in contoured forms that look good from any angle and are as pleasing to the touch as they are to the eye.

Contributing to the light, easy handling of the chassis design, the Voyagers suspension components are tuned to match its touring mission. Dual air-shocks offer 3.1 inches of rear suspension travel and feature unique settings for the Voyager. These air-adjustable shocks feature 4-way rebound damping adjustment, to help ensure predictable handling and a comfortable ride.

Offering a stylish alternative to run of the mill V-twin tourers, the Vulcan 1700 Voyager combines Kawasaki reliability with the performance, V-twin feel, comfort and amenities that long-distance touring riders demand.

A coolant pipe has been shortened, for easier oil-screen maintenance
New 2nd Generation Kawasaki Advanced Coactive-Braking Technology (K-ACT) ABSVoyager ABS models feature the latest, fastest version of Kawasakis sophisticated K-ACT system, which enables riders to execute controlled, balanced braking. Designed to complement the riders brake inputs, the system distributes the ideal amount of brake pressure to maximize braking efficiency
The new K-ACT uses the same ECU and ABS unit found on the Concours 14, but has only one mode option instead of the other bikes two-mode system
Low battery mode maintains ABS function while reducing signal frequency to conserve power when needed.
For controllability in tight corners and when executing U-turns, K-ACTs coactive function does not engage when braking is initiated at speeds below 12mph
The ABS function is disengaged at speeds below 4mph
Both ABS and non-ABS models use dual 300mm front disc brakes with four-piston calipers and a two-piston rear disc brake for sure, powerful stops
Powerful 1700CC V-Twin EngineLiquid cooled, 4-valve per cylinder, fuel-injected 1700cc 52 V-twin engine
Long-stroke 102 x 104mm bore and stroke helps deliver high levels of torque
approximately 15 percent greater than that of the Vulcan 1600, with a distinct V-twin feel
Valve system is based on the Vulcan 2000, but uses a single overhead cam arrangement instead of pushrods, for quicker revving and enhanced mid-high rpm power
Semi-dry sump allows a lower crankshaft placement and a longer piston stroke without increasing engine height
Single-pin crank accentuates the engines V-twin character by providing stronger power-pulses
Large capacity airbox is located on both sides of the engine
Small-diameter iridium sparkplugs reach deep into the combustion chamber for high combustion efficiency, especially during low-load operation
Features dual mufflers, one on each side of the bike, to allow maximum clearance for luggage
Engine tuning offers superior acceleration in the 50-70mph range
Even in overdrive, the engine pulls strongly in this speed range, facilitating overtaking at highway speeds
Fuel InjectionBased on the systems used by the Ninja 650R and Vulcan 900
Utilizes one sensor in place of the usual three, for reduced complexity and weight
The touring-oriented Voyager utilizes FI and exhaust systems which are tuned to reach peak torque and horsepower at a higher rpm than the engines used in standard Vulcan 1700 cruisers
Electronic 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 engine
Optimized fuel injector timing and throttle valve position results in accurate, powerful engine response
Control of both fuel injection and airflow provides easy starting and precise cold-engine idle speed control
From the riders 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 same
Twisting 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 motor
Accurate throttle position is relayed to the ECU by a Throttle Position Sensor (TPS)
APS and TPS send two sets of signals to the ECU for system redundancy in the unlikely event of a sensor failure
Cruise ControlThe cruise control can be engaged and adjusted entirely from the right handlebar
Cruise control can be activated in 3rd gear or above at any speed between 30mph and 85mph
Pressure on the brake lever, clutch lever or rear brake pedal will automatically disengage the cruise control, as will manually rolling-off the throttle
On Board DiagnosticsDiagnostic system allows self testing of the electronic systems on the Vulcan 1700
Displays codes on the instrumentation, which can be read by owner; using accessory manual
Six-Speed Transmission/Final DriveBoth 5th and 6th gears offer overdrive ratios, contributing to stress-free riding and better fuel economy when cruising at highway speeds
28mm carbon fiber 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 thats only 2mm wider than the Kevlar unit on the Vulcan 900
Belt drive system is quiet, efficient and offers reduced maintenance compared to a chain
Light Handling ChassisA more compact package than its predecessors, the Voyager has a shorter wheelbase and shorter distance between the seat and steering head, for improved rider ergonomics and easier maneuverability
Designed 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-turns
45MM Telescopic ForkProvides superb steering feedback
5.5 inches of travel helps provide excellent ride quality
Dual Adjustable Rear Air-ShocksFeature Air adjustable spring preload to help compensate for passenger and luggage variations
4-way rebound damping adjustments help the shocks compensate for changes in spring pressure
