2014 Kawasaki Vulcan® 1700 Vaquero® ABS Who says you can’t have a well-deserved attitude and still be practical? Owners of a Vulcan® 1700 Vaquero® bagger have the best of both worlds. The traffic stopping good looks will make you smile every time you throw a leg over this blacked beauty. A frame-mounted, abbreviated fairing sets the stage while the swoopy tank leads the eye to the shapely luggage of this V-twin bagger. The multi-textured blacked-out engine and chassis treatment includes components (like the air-cleaner cover, wheels, fork assembly and tank cover) that would normally be chromed, leaving only a special few parts (engine guards, exhaust, mirrors, etc.) to receive plating and act as bright accents to either the Metallic Flat Spark Black or Two-Tone Candy Burnt Orange (SE model) paint. Features may include: Blacked-out looks accentuate the lines and body shapes through the use of varied surface texture and subtle, contrasting highlights Sporty, one-piece saddle with low seat height emphasizes the classic, long, low “bagger” look “Muscle car” inspired instrumentation delivers essential information with style Powerful 1,700cc V-twin delivers impressive levels of torque and immediate passing power Six-speed transmission for effortless acceleration and relaxed cruising at highway speeds Electronic throttle actuation system combines optimized injector timing for throttle valve position, delivering accurate, powerful engine performance Kawasaki’s sophisticated K-ACT II ABS system builds rider confidence by helping execute controlled, balanced braking Electronic cruise control maintains speed and reduces rider fatigue on long trips 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 XM radio compatibility is standard equipment Twin tapered mufflers maximize saddlebag capacity and improve the engine’s power delivery Includes a 36 month limited factory warranty.
