2016 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Vaquero

This Vulcan 1700 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 Vaquero’s 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.

ABS and combined braking add to rider confidence, while cruise control enhances comfort. The frame-mounted fairing houses such essentials as a full audio system with iPhone and SiriusXM compatibility.
