2009 Kawasaki Vulcan® 1700 Voyager ABS
Not Overly ImpressedBy (I am an Owner) on May 14, 2009
I just parted with my 1984 1300cc big six. Smooth, quiet and plenty of power with better fuel economy. Kawasaki is going backwards with their cruiser. More modern upgrades like a better stereo, abs brakes, I-pod and satalite capable and cruise control are nice modern features but the 1300 cc engine ... is far superior than their v-twin. The 1300 bags are more solid and better protected with guards and the locking mechanisms are much sturdier. Nothing flimsey as compared to the 1700 Voyager. Even the mirrors are mickey mouse compared to the 1300 Voyager. Bigger mirrors, safer...Ride is better on the new bike but very difficult to adjust... They should stop immitating the Harley and immitate and improve Kawasaki's own good bikes...
