The 2011 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Nomad motorcycle is a full-blown touring bike, with its windshield, hard saddlebags, floorboards, backrest and standard cruise control taking the sting out of long days in the saddle.

The Kawasaki Nomad liquid-cooled and fuel-injected big-inch V-twin has hearty disposition. This 1,700cc engine features a 52-degree V angle, overhead cams, high compression, a long-stroke design and all the latest technology for prodigious power and torque spread over a wide rpm range.

The redesigned Kawasaki 1700 mufflers not only enhance the look, but also give it the deep sound you would expect. And there is plenty of grunt all the way to 5,000 rpm; just thump thumping along in top gear.

The Kawasaki Nomad fully Electronic Throttle Valve system enhances engine response without detracting from its distinctive V-twin feel. 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 Kawasaki Nomad electronic cruise control system is conveniently operated from the right motorcycle handlebar, and can be engaged at any speed between 30 and 85 mph in any of the top four gears.

The motorcycle cruise system can be disengaged in any of the following ways: brake lever, clutch lever, rear brake pedal, or manually turning the throttle grip past the closed position.

A revised six-speed transmission with quieter and more positive shifting action features over-driven 5th and 6th gears, which contribute greatly to a relaxed ride and excellent fuel economy at highway speeds.

The 2011 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Nomad power is routed to the rear wheel via a carbon fiber drive belt that has a 40-percent higher tensile strength than current Kevlar belts.
