2012 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Voyager

Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Voyager
Kawasaki has entered the full dress touring market with the 2009 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Voyager. They've done their homework and the bike looks pretty complete. It's powered by a 1700cc, single overhead cam, 4 valve, fuel injected V-Twin with 107 foot pounds of torque. A 6 speed transmission with overdrive turns a belt final drive.
The Voyager utilizes an electronic throttle, electronic cruise control and it's equipped with Kawasaki Advanced Coactive Braking Technology (K-ACT) which is a linked braking system. The retro muscle car styled dash has a sound system compatible with the iPod.
The fuel tank holds 5.3 gallons, the trunk holds 2 full face helmets, front forks are adjustable and the rear have air adjustable preload.
Overall, I think it looks like a formidable entry in the touring segment, aimed squarely at the same folks riding the big dressers from Milwaukee giving them another excellent choice or any riders looking for a long distance cruiser. Less tradition but a lot of great features, this could be interesting.
