The Kawasaki VN1700 Nomad, in depth

The Kawasaki VN1700 Nomad Classic Tourer comes equipped and ready for your next adventure complete with ABS braking as standard.

HARD PANNIERS

The VN1700 Classic Tourer features hard, lockable panniers (same type as those on the VN1700 Voyager). The top-opening panniers provide 38 litres of sealed storage space for relaxed touring.

INSTRUMENTS

Ignition switch allows on-position key removal, preventing key bunches from damaging the instrument cluster or tank while the bike is in operation. Turning the ignition switch collar to the “OFF” position turns the engine off and necessitates re-insertion of the key to restart. Multi-function LCD displays on the tank-mounted instrument cluster are controlled by switches on the right handlebar. Features include a gear position indicator (na recent addition for Kawasaki cruisers), fuel gauge, clock, odometer, dual trip meters, remaining range and average fuel consumption.

ELECTRONIC THROTTLE VALVE SYSTEM

Kawasaki’s first fully electronic throttle actuation system enables the ECU to control the volume of both the fuel (via fuel injectors) and the air (via throttle valves) delivered to the engine. Ideal fuel injection and throttle valve position results in smooth, natural engine response. Control of both fuel injection and airflow also enables precise cold-engine idling speed control.

6-SPEED TRANSMISSION WITH OVERDRIVE

6th gear is a relaxing overdrive ratio contributing to stress-free riding and better fuel economy when cruising at motorway speeds.

WINDSCREEN

The Vulcan 1700 Nomad adds wind protection care of an adjustable handlebar-mounted windscreen. A sub-windscreen and deflectors on the Vulcan 1700 Nomad further increase wind protection performance. The sub-windscreen covers the area between the windscreen and headlamp when the windscreen is in the raised position. The fork-mounted deflectors help direct air away from the rider’s legs.

POWERFUL 1700CC V-TWIN ENGINE

Long-stroke, liquid cooled, SOHC, 8-valve 1,700 cm3 V-Twin engine was designed to deliver high levels of torque. The valve system is based on that of the VN2000, but uses a SOHC arrangement instead of OHV for more direct engine feel and easier merging onto motorways.

LUXURY BACKREST

Also contributing to passenger comfort, the VN1700 Classic Tourer features a luxury backrest with integrated passenger grab bars.

K-ACT ABS

At its heart, K-ACT ABS is an advanced anti-lock braking system, designed to keep tyres from locking up during braking. But K-ACT ABS was designed to be used on touring models weighing in excess of 300 kg – and that is before adding a tandem rider and luggage.

Complementing its standard ABS function, K-ACT ABS links the front and rear brakes. It monitors the brake force the rider is exerting at both the front and rear, and takes into consideration vehicle speed to ensure highly effective braking while maintaining chassis stability.

For example, let’s say the rider pulls on the front brake lever. To keep the bike from pitching forward, the ABS ECU actuates the rear brake (via fluid pumps) to ensure that front-rear balance is maintained.

Should the rider push the rear brake pedal, the system actuates the front brake as well to distribute the load more evenly so that the rear wheel does not lock up. Based on the vehicle speed, K-ACT decides the optimum hydraulic pressure to send to each caliper, ensuring that even with a heavy motorcycle, stable braking performance is possible.

ELECTRONIC CRUISE CONTROL

Electronic Cruise Control allows a desired speed (engine rpm) to be maintained with the simple press of a button. Because the rider does not have to constantly control the throttle, this system allows relaxed cruising. This reduces stress on the right hand when travelling long distances, contributing to a high level of riding comfort.

Electronic Cruise Control is featured on Kawasaki’s Vulcan 1700 / VN1700 Series cruisers and JET SKI ULTRA 300X and 300LX personal watercraft. These models are equipped with an Electronic Throttle Valve system, meaning the throttle valves are not actuated directly by twisting the throttle grip (or pulling the throttle lever); rather, a position sensor on the throttle grip sends a signal to the ECU, which in determines the ideal throttle position.

This is how Electronic Cruise Control is able to automatically adjust engine power to maintain vehicle speed when ascending or descending grades are encountered. Without the detailed control offered by Electronic Throttle Valves, functions like Electronic Cruise Control would not be possible.
