2011 Kawasaki Motorcycle
A relative newcomer to the luxury-touring category, the fully dressed Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Voyager ABS reflects the company’s dedication to performance.
It has a very slightly undersquare and high-tech motor that knows how to pull, thanks to a claimed 108 ft/lbs of torque at only 2750 rpm.
Fuel metering by the EFI is flawless, and the bike accelerates briskly, hiding its claimed curb weight of almost 900 pounds.
The top case holds 13.2 gallons of luggage, including two full-face helmets, greatly simplifying travel; the three-band audio system is iPod-compatible.
