Purposeful beauty with a traditional cruiser and high tech blend. Technology is supposed to make life easier, not busier and ever more complex. Kawasaki’s new Vulcan® 1700 Classic cruiser employs the right amount of technology with a dose of old-fashioned simplicity to allow the rider to focus on the experience and not the machine. Its lighter, more compact frame holds a new engine utilizing a high-tech electronic throttle valve. Transferring the healthy torque output to the road is a new six-speed transmission with overdrive and super strong carbon fiber drive belt.
