Click video to see the new 2010 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Nomad in action. The new 2010 Vulcan 1700 comes with an improved exhaust pipe heat shielding that reduces radiant heat felt by the rider. The 2010 also has new and improved radiator ducting that helps keep heat away from the rider’s right leg. With a 5mm shorter coolant pipe it makes it possible to remove the Vulcan pipe without removing the alternator cover, simplifying oil-screen maintenance. More importantly the liquid cooled, 4-valve per cylinder, fuel-injected 1700cc 52° V-twin engine has a
long-stroke 102 x 104mm bore and stroke that helps deliver high levels of torque with a distinct V-twin feel.
