Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Wallpaper
As the flagship of the Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 family, the 2011 Voyager motorcycle is built to the hilt for long-distance touring rides.
The luxury touring motorcycle boosts a torquey 1,700 cc V-twin powerplant, large frame-mounted fairing, integrated luggage that stows a week’s worth of gear, a comfortable saddle, electronic cruise control, high-fidelity sound system, and is available with optional the K-ACT anti-lock/integrated braking system.
The ABS-equipped of the 2011 Kawasaki Voyager, K-ACT uses advanced electronics to translate the rider’s braking inputs from both the front lever and rear pedal into smooth, balanced deceleration and maximum stopping performance.
Basically, the front lever also activates the rear brake, and the rear pedal also engages the right front caliper: K-ACT ensures all this happens seamlessly and efficiently, and the, second-generation system uses the same smaller, lighter ABS unit and faster, higher-spec brake ECU found on the Kawasaki Concours 14 ABS motorcycle for even smoother, more precise operation.
The Kawasaki Voyager K-ACT’s coactive function does not engage when braking is applied at speeds below 12 mph, and the ABS function is automatically disengaged at speeds below 4 mph.
There’s much more on the unique technology front, including Kawasaki’s fully electronic throttle valve system, which works in concert with the Voyager’s Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system to enhance engine response without dulling the big Vee’s distinctive throb.
The setup utilizes an Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) and Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) that feed data to the ECU, which adjusts the throttle plates to tailor intake airflow accordingly.
The 2011 Kawasaki Voyager system offers natural throttle feel, as APS is activated by a throttle-body pulley connected by cables to the throttle grip.
The 1,700cc 52-degree V-twin features liquid cooling, four-valve cylinder heads and a single overhead cam setup for big-time mid-range power, the engine utilizes a pair of big pistons to pump out a massive quantity of torque over a wide rpm range, a key to this engine’s flexibility.
Offering a stylish alternative to other run-of-the-mill V-twin tourers, the Vulcan 1700 Voyager motorcycle combines Kawasaki reliability with the performance, V-twin feel, comfort and amenities long-distance touring riders demand.
