Features
Powerful 1700cc V-Twin engine

– Liquid-cooled, 4-valve per cylinder, fuel-injected 1700cc V-twin engine as on the Vulcan 1700 Classic
– Long-stroke 102 x 104mm bore and stroke helps deliver high levels of torque
– A large-capacity airbox is located on both sides of the engine
– Features dual mufflers, one on each side of the bike
– Engine tuning offers superior acceleration in the 50-70mph (80-113km/h) range
– Even in overdrive, the engine pulls strongly in this speed range, facilitating overtaking at highway speeds

Next Generation FI
– Based on systems already on Ninja 650R and Vulcan 900
– Utilizes one sensor in place of the usual three, for less complexity and weight
– The touring-oriented Nomad utilizes a FI and exhaust set up to deliver its torque and horsepower peak at a higher rpm

On-Board Diagnostics
– Diagnostic system allows self-testing of the electronic systems on the Vulcan 1700
– Displays codes on the instrumentation, which can be read by the owner; using accessory manual

Electronic Throttle Valve System
– Kawasaki’s first fully electronic throttle valve system enables the ECU to control the volume of intake air (via throttle valves) and the volume fuel (via fuel injectors) delivered to the engine. Ideal fuel injection and throttle valve position results in smooth, natural engine response
– Control of both fuel injection and airflow enables precise cold-engine idling 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
– Twisting the throttle turns a throttle pulley on the throttle body actuating the Accelerator Position Sensor (APS), located on the throttle body, to send a signal to the ECU, which then actuates the throttle valves via a DC motor. Throttle position is confirmed to the ECU by 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
– Operation of the cruise control is conveniently from the right handle
– Cruise control can be activated between 30mph (47km/h) and 85mph (137km/h) in 3rd gear or above
– Operating the brake lever, clutch lever or rear brake pedal disengages the cruise control as will closing the throttle beyond the “zero-throttle” position

Transmission / Final Drive
– Six-speed transmission
– 6th gear is an overdrive gear, contributing to stress-free riding and better fuel economy when cruising at highway speeds
– The clutch features six damping springs for three-stage progressive damping that contributes to smoother feeling under hard acceleration
– 28mm carbon fiber final drive belt has a 40 percent higher tensile strength than current Kevlar units nearly twice its width and allows the Vulcan 1700 to use a slim belt only 2mm wider than that on the Vulcan 900
– The drive belt is quiet and efficient and helps reduce maintenance chores

Lightweight handling chassis
– A more compact package than its predecessors, the new frame features a shorter wheelbase, and shorter distance between the seat and frame head pipe, for improved rider ergonomics and easier maneuverability
– Designed to be as light and slim as possible, the frame minimizes the number of forged parts and trims any unnecessary metal. The only forged parts are areas that require additional strength – the down-tube joint, engine brackets, side-stand bracket, and rear fender/shock absorber bracket
– The new frame is 4.4 pounds lighter than its predecessors and has a 40% increase in rigidity
– The compact design contributes to light handling and facilitates handling at low speeds, especially when executing precise slow-speed maneuvers like parking or making U-turns

43mm Telescopic Fork
– Provides superb steering feedback and excellent ride quality
– Features 4-way preload adjustment

Dual Adjustable Rear Air-Shocks
– Feature Air adjustable spring preload to match the load
– 4-way rebound damping for a smooth and comfortable ride
– Settings are specific to the touring needs of the Nomad

9-Spoke Cast Wheels
– Allows the use of tubeless tire and complement its new muscular styling
– 130/90 front and 170/70 rear radial tires offer good traction, smooth ride and classy style
– Tire choice and suspension settings augment the light handling characteristics

Brakes
– Dual 300mm front disc brakes and single 300mm rear disc brake, both with twin-piston calipers provide smooth, powerful stops

V-twin Visual Appeal
– Basic engine structure has a great impact on a V-Twin engine’s appearance.
– The line created by the top of the airbox and the cylinder heads forms a curved line that continues to flow through the bike.
– Deeply chromed engine covers have curved upper surfaces. Their three-dimensional form adds volume and gives a quality appearance.
– The edges of the fins receive a special NC treatment that makes them gleam in sunlight
– All the non-chromed parts of the engine have a matt black finish that further accentuates the chromed parts

Bodywork
– The fuel tank’s hand-sculpted contours employ constantly varying radii, giving the bike a dynamism that is pleasing both to the eye and to the touch
– Its lines flowing through the rest of the bike, the elegantly shaped fuel tank contributes to the Nomad’s curvaceous figure
– Ignition switch allows on-position key removal; preventing key bunches from scratching 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 handle. Features include a gear position indicator, fuel gauge, clock, odometer, dual trip meters, remaining range and average fuel consumption
– Liberal use of chrome on the engine, fender brackets, light stays, saddlebag accents and front and rear guards, contrasts nicely with the bodywork’s deep, lustrous paint
– Simple design of the seat cover balances the rich visual tone of the bodywork
– Motif from the front fender continues on the rear fender, which features an elegant LED taillight

Wind Protection
– Adjustable handlebar-mounted windscreen offers smooth airflow and cruiser style
– Strong chrome-plated steel supports
– Two-position height
– Sub-windshield and deflectors further increase wind protection performance
– The sub-windshield covers the area between the windshield and headlight when the windshield is in the raised position and the fork-mounted deflectors help direct air away from the rider’s legs

Seat and Passenger Backrest
– Rider and passenger seats are sculpted for greater all-day comfort
– Luxury backrest with integrated passenger grab bars contributes to passenger comfort
– As a final contribution to passenger comfort, the Nomad features passenger floorboards

Saddlebags
– The Nomad features hard, lockable, top-opening saddlebags that each provides 8.6 gal. (38L) of sealed storage space for overnight touring
– Front and rear guards on the Nomad help protect the bike’s engine and hard side cases in the case of a fall
– Convenient helmet locks located on the left- and right-side saddlebag guards
