OVERVIEW

2014 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Nomad Reviews

Traditional Styling with Contemporary Technology

The Vulcan® 1700 Nomad™ ABS may look like it rolled out of the history books, but at it’s heart, the Nomad is a thoroughly modern motorcycle. Outfitted with a full-sized windshield, hard saddlebags, floorboards, backrest and standard cruise control, this Vulcan has everything needed to both stand out on the boulevard and follow the front wheel towards distant horizons. The low-slung seat makes maneuvering a breeze at the local bike night while the shape and padding of the saddle and pillion keep the rider and passenger comfortable during long days on the open road. Through it all, the pulse of the 1700cc V-twin wraps itself around your soul, enticing you to keep on riding long after the sunset has stopped reflecting in the Nomad’s silky two-tone paint.

In addition to good looks, the Nomad touring cruiser has the technological chops to support its “been there done that” attitude. The powerful engine is as comfortable loafing along the boulevard as it is cruising across state lines. All that is required to motivate this classically-styled bagger is a twist of the throttle. The state-of-the-art digital fuel injection and two big pistons take care of the rest.

The key to the Nomad’s considerable flexibility is its blend of touring-oriented hardware and the uniquely designed Vulcan 1700 platform, which offers a ton of versatility and performance whether in Voyager®, Vaquero® or Nomad configuration.

POWERFULL ENGINE

new 2014 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Nomad

  • Liquid-cooled, four valves per cylinder, fuel-injected 1,700cc 52-degree V-twin engine
  • Long-stroke 102 x 104mm bore and stroke helps deliver high levels of torque with a distinct V-twin feel
  • Valve system uses a single overhead cam arrangement instead of pushrods for quicker revving and enhanced mid-high rpm power
  • Semi-dry sump design allows a lower crankshaft placement and a longer piston stroke without increasing engine height
  • -pin crank accentuates the engine’s V-twin character by providing stronger power pulses
  • large-capacity airbox is located on both sides of the engine
  • -diameter iridium sparkplugs reach deep into the combustion chamber for high combustion efficiency, especially during low-load operation
  • mufflers, one on each side of the bike, allow maximum clearance for luggage
  • Engine tuning offers superior acceleration in the 50 to 70 mph range
  • Even in overdrive, the engine pulls strongly in this speed range, facilitating overtaking at highway speeds

FULL ELECTRONIC SYSTEM

  • Fully electronic throttle actuation system enables the ECU to control the volume of intake air (via throttle valve angle) and fuel (via fuel injector timing) delivered to the engine
  • fuel injector timing and throttle valve position results in accurate, powerful engine response
  • Control of both fuel injection and airflow provides easy starting and precise cold-engine idle speed control
  • From the rider’s perspective, the ETV works like a standard cable-operated throttle; the throttle grip is still connected to cables, so the feel at the grip is the same
  • the throttle turns a pulley on the throttle body, which triggers the Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) to send a signal to the ECU, which then modulates the throttle valves via a DC motor
  • Accurate throttle position is relayed to the ECU by a Throttle Position Sensor (TPS)
  • APS and TPS send two sets of signals to the ECU for system redundancy in the unlikely event of a sensor failure

CRUISE CONTROL

  • Cruise control can be engaged and adjusted entirely from the right handlebar
  • Cruise control can be activated in 3rd gear or above at any speed between 30 mph and 85 mph
  • Pressure on the brake lever, clutch lever or rear brake pedal will automatically disengage the cruise control, as will manually rolling off the throttle

AVANDCE BREAKING FEATURES

  • Nomad ABS features Kawasaki’s sophisticated K-ACT II system, which helps riders to execute controlled, balanced braking. Designed to complement the riders’ brake inputs, the system distributes the ideal amount of brake pressure to maximize braking efficiency
  • For increased controllability in tight corners and when executing U-turns, K-ACT’s coactive function does not engage when braking is initiated at speeds below 12 mph
  • ABS function is disengaged at speeds below 4 mph
  • Dual 300mm front disc brakes with four-piston calipers and a two-piston rear disc brake for sure, powerful stops
