2011 Kawasaki Motorcycle

New for 2011 in the Vulcan 1700 line is the Vaquero – Spanish for “cowboy,” in case you were wondering.

This Vulcan bagger has a classic frame-mounted half-fairing with a short windshield, giving the rider a break from the blast, but not completely separating him from the environment.

The hard bags are lockable and sit above twin mufflers. The long-stroke SOHC motor has a single-pin crank to enhance the character of the firing sequence.

Modern technology includes a self-testing diagnostic system for the motor that can be read on the control panel by the owner.
